    Question What is the best SDK for creating new Android applications?

    Hello!

    I have heard of Titanium SDK, but I've never try it. Now there is new challenge for creating Android applications in my country so I want to give it a try. I am good at structured programming, I have started with visual programming this year and I must say it is not difficult at all. I have used the standard bundled API called Swing.

    Also maybe a bit of irrelevant question, is it better to use NetBeans or Eclipse? Now, I use NetBeans but I do not know what is the difference between these IDEs (this is general question, not related to developing Android apps). I can see that Eclipse got plug-in for Android SDK. Also, I got low performance computer and NetBeans runs kinda slow and laggy.

    Please, let me hear your opinion. Thanks in advance.

    Err... why not the newest version of the official SDK by google?

    And if you've used NetBeans, stick with it. Eclipse is famous for being complicated and really on suited for people that were brought up in it. An excelent guide that I used to setup the SDK on my machine is here

    Thanks for the tutorial, it's very easy to follow.

    I have more questions, like how will I do the visual stuff ? I mean can I use the Swing package so that I can use the JFrame and JPanel? Do I need to create references to objects like you did here:

    TextView tv = new TextView(this);

    And why you put the reference this in the constructor of tv ?

    Regards.

    According to the API over at TextView | Android Developers)

    It appears that the TextView constructor takes a Context | Android Developers

    // Json
