How to Build an Android App Part 4: Illumination Software Creator – XDA TV

Many people have the desire to create an Android App, but they don’t know where to get started. Learning a programming language such as Java involves getting past a significant learning curve. If only there were a simple way to make a basic application to get a feel for Android development; and then view the code to understand the structure. Luckily, there is.

In this video, XDA Elite Recognized Developer AdamOutler talks about a newly open-sourced application called Illumination Software Creator, or ISC—not to be confused with Ice Cream Sandwich, Android’s latest version. This powerful software utility can generate code in a similar manner to Google and MIT’s App Inventor. An exciting feature is that Illumination Software Creator exports actual code, which allows you to continue developing outside of the Illumination Software Creator environment.

This video is part of our How to Build an Android App series. Be sure to check out the following videos to learn more about building an Android application:
