Have a great idea for a smartphone or tablet app?

Just want to try your hand at writing a program for your own personal use?

http://developer.android.com/index.html

Google has put together a very user friendly development environment for Android. Everything you need to get started is at that link, including lots of examples, etc...

You don't even need an android phone (although it's is helpful).

Awesome!

I've had this idea of a slingshot game. Where depending on your angle and your "tension" is how far your projectile will go. I am thinking of doing something with a barnyard theme. Maybe chickens or crows... some type of avian animal for the projectiles.

And I think I want to give them targets to bomb, something barnyard-ish as well. Like cows, or maybe pigs.

I don't know, maybe it wouldn't be that fun.

I want to make a game where you build a fort and put different types of cannons on it. Each piece of your fort and weapon costs money. Other people make forts too. You get matched up against other people and one fort wins. You see the simulation of the match. It uses physics like AngryBirds. If someone shoots your fort and it displaces pieces then it falls, and any cannons there will face the wrong way. Different parts cost different amounts so you have to optimize. Your flag automatically goes onto the highest part of your fort, and if it falls you lose. You can use a custom graphic for your flag. You can always redesign your fort between matches. Also there should be an option to hide your forts design, so they can only see the edge of it, and thus can't steal your design.

I mainly want to make it so that I can play it... if someone steals my idea then that's fine too.
