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

Respond to voice inputs to perform commands such as reply to messages while driving.

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