#CodingResolutions: Your First Mobile App

by Jan 16, 2019

Welcome back to the #CodingResolutions series!  In this post, we’re going to make sure we have our developer environment set up for Android Development, and then create our first Android app in either C++ or Delphi.


You should already have downloaded and installed either the RAD Studio 30 Day FREE Trial, Delphi Community Edition, or C++ Builder Community Edition.

Need help installing the product? Read the documentation or ask for assistance in the forums.

Create A Mobile App that Takes and Shares Photos

These two example projects leverage the phone camera to take photos, then shares them via social networks. You’ll use design forms, learn how to access the camera, and share photos.

Build your first C++ Android mobile app that shares photos in under 3 minutes with this example: C++ Android App Tutorial.

Create your first Delphi mobile app that leverages the phone camera and shares photos with this Delphi Android App Tutorial.
