Make Your Own Application with Rheti
When beginning the journey with Android, many surely dream about making a great applications like our (Recognized) Developers do. Writing an application is not easy, and requires vast knowledge of Java and understanding of various APIs. It’s a long road with hoops that you must jump through.
Imagine not having to enter hundreds lines of code to create your very own application. Sounds promising? It surely does, especially when a project allowing that exists. XDA Forum Member Rheti developed an application that allows you to add custom app elements and get an APK as the final output.
The project is at a very early stage, and requires signing up for the beta. However, XDA users are highly welcomed and appreciated by developers, which are sending beta invites willingly. The project is an extremely interesting option for those looking to become amateur developers, and it may be good motivation to start learning Java and become a next famous application developer with millions of installs in Play Store. XDA University is a good place to start your journey with programming.
Information on Rheti and the contact form can be found in the original thread. What do you think of these sorts of tools? What’s your next big app idea? Share your thoughts in the comments.
