  1. Playing sound in andoird

    Adding sound and music to your app is extremely easy. Place your sound file in a new directory res/raw.

    import android.media.MediaPlayer;

    and then where you want the music to play:

    MediaPlayer myMusic = MediaPlayer.create(this, R.raw.splashsound);

    where splashsound is the sound file's name without the extension.

    That's it!
