Android-should I learn it ? (solved)

Well...as title said,dude
As far as I know, it is an mobile os. Android's mobile operating system is based on a modified version of the Linux kernel. I know open source FTW now However, not so sure should I start this or not. What do you think?

If you don't know how to program, I would advise you not to try.

programming for the android is is done in java, so why not just learn java? if you don't know java then you can't program for the android os.

I made some simple apps for Android, maybe I can help you solve some doubts.

Not totally true. Easiest choice is Java, but you can also use an alternative SDK by Google for C, although it's more intented to make Android core system modifications rather than applications.

No, it's standard Java.

Nope since XML is no programming language.
ultimakillz wrote:no xml, just java.
Wrong, you need both, XMLs are used to define persistent data and GUI layout. Not 100% mandatory but surely highly recommended.
