Here you'll find sets of lessons within classes that describe how to accomplish a specific task with code samples you can re-use in your app. Classes are organized into several groups you can see at the top-level of the left navigation. This first group, Getting Started, teaches you the bare essentials for Android app development. If you're a new Android app developer, you should complete each of these classes in order. If you think you might prefer to learn the basics through interactive video training, check out this trailer for a course in the fundamentals of Android development.

FaceDetector.Face. Class Overview A Face contains all the information identifying the location of a face in a bitmap.

Android provides a rich application framework that allows you to build innovative apps and games for mobile devices in a Java language environment.

The Developer's Guide

The documents listed in the left navigation provide details about how to build apps using Android's various APIs. If you're new to Android development, it's important that you understand the following fundamental concepts about the Android app framework: Apps provide multiple entry points Android apps are built as a combination of distinct components that can be invoked individually. For instance, an individual activity provides a single screen for a user interface, and a service independently performs work in the background. From one component you can start another component using an intent.

The primary way to write applications for an Android-based phone is still Java. Google provides a Software Development Kit (SDK) with all the documentation, libraries and tools you need. There's even an add-on for the open-source Eclipse Integrated Development Environment (IDE) to help you along. figure 1 Google recently released a new and improved version of what was previously called the Android Scripting Edition (ASE) now renamed to Scripting Layer for Android (SL4A).
