    I have only written one app, and that was the notepad demo app.

    I have a website, and I am near completion with the first release. I would like to create an app for the site. It is a very basic site (yet complex) site that I would like my app to do a few things with:

    1. Post URL's to my API
    2. Read data from my API (to display on the screen)
    3. Search/browse my site with my API
    4. Click on links/buttons which open in phone's browser

    those are some of the 4 things I would like to add, what should I look into to get started on those 4 things?

    Thanks!

    All the things that rely on your API should be fairly simple. As you should have some kind of web interface all you need to do is build the correct URL in java and the call that url (POST or GET depending on your api)...
    And then you build the UI with the responses from the server (XMl, JSON or similar).

    And the last one is almost as simple, as you just need to create the button in java and set up the intent to open it in an app that can handle the URL. Then Android will find the right app(s) for that automatically.

    You can find guidance on both in here:

    Another vote for the Android Developers website. I find the documentation very good. Also, the Google group called Android Developers can be very helpful if you run into any hurdles.
