Step 2: Make your First App

Now you can make your first app, normally the first program is “Hello World.” And what we do is just get the computer to output to the screen “Hello World” on to the screen. By doing so, you know you have a working environment.

But for your first app on the handphone,  it will be —

TalkToMe Text-to-Speech App

After you have made your app, please comment below which part of the tutorial you have completed.

And what you should do, is play around and modify it and see if you can make it a little more interesting.

Note: If you did everything correctly, and you are not hearing the “speech”, go to language and input of your phone settings and check if google text to speech is installed. Most phones should have it installed, but yours may not. You have to go to google playstore and get it from there.

If you have such a problem or whatever issues, comment here.

And here is step 3 doing ball bounce. And you are required to make a small game after doing the tutorial.

    Another tip … if you have connection errors, check that you are in the same wifi network. Your phone cannot be in 3G/4G. Also your laptop or PC must be in (same) wifi. If not the android phone and your laptop/PC cannot communicate.
