Do you know some Visual Basic? Then build your own Android Apps Easy! - full instructions

Although has somewhat been languishing over the last few months that doesn't mean that I have not been busy. On the contrary I have been flat out hard at work writing and teaching how to build Android Apps using Visual Basic.

Java coders will react to this with howls of laughter, but with some awesome software recently released its not only doable its very fast. conception to finishing takes only a week or two, although for me ideas are usually stewing for a while first.

Create and use remote web based databases in your projects. - Creating an online database that users can access, post to, receive from etc.

Create GPS software save location online, use Google geolocate to get the location of a lat and lon. etc.

Create an alarm system to send SMS text messages out to multiple recipients at a set time.

Integrating voice so that it can read out who the text message comes from and the body of the message.
Respond to voice inputs to perform commands such as reply to messages while driving.

If you are interested here is a link to my current, still under development, manual on the website.

The software for the projects is made with Visual Basic for Android from
