Learn How to Create an Old School Dialer

XDA is not only a great source for custom ROMs, kernels, and various modifications for numerous devices–it’s also a great place to find tutorials and other materials that help you to understand the Android ecosystem better. These resources then help you on your quest of eventually becoming a developer. Every developer started off not knowing how to code, but learning and ambition can work wonders.

Creating your first project can take days or weeks if you are learning just by yourself. You can reduce this time significantly by following the video tutorial by XDA Senior Member sylsau. By following this guide you will become… a time traveler and change your currently used dialer to classic rotary style seen back in the old days of last century.

The project has been built on Eclipse, so if you’re planning to follow the guide, you’ll need to download the IDE yourself since Google dropped Eclipse and ADT as the main Android IDE. You can watch the video by visiting the How to create an Old School Rotary Dialer forum thread. Head over there to learn more.
