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.
