Getting Started

  • Articles, FAQ's, and tutorials may use words you've never heard before. We've assembled an Android Dictionary to reference as you charter unfamiliar territory.
  • Looking for some specific Android Tips & Tricks? The Android Central front page has just what you're looking for.


Switching Platforms

  • Parting ways with Blackberry and joining the Android revolution? Here's a must read blog article to help familiarize and educate yourself with the differences between the two operating systems.
  • We also have those of you switching over from webOS covered as well. Take a look at this head to head comparison of one of the top selling Android devices to date, the HTC EVO against the Palm Pre. Two Palm Pre guys share their assessments of how each phone stacks up against the other. Definitely an interesting read!
  • Blackberry and former webOS users need not leave their friends behind. We have dedicated Blackberry and, webOS forums where you can ask questions and stay in touch with your buddies.



Android Applications

  • If you're ready to explore the world of Android applications/games; review and vote in member favorite polls; or have questions about Market specific issues, head on over to these forums.
  • The Android Central blog has a dedicated page for application news and reviews.
  • Our dedicated developer forums, give you an opportunity to interact directly with some of the top application developers in the Market.
  • With the exception of AT&T, carriers have allowed smartphone owners to install applications directly from their SD cards. The installers for these applications are identified with an .APK extension. We believe all members should be able to install free and paid applications, whether they were downloaded them from the Market or otherwise. AC has developed a desktop application, called the Android Central Sideload Wonder Machine, that enables AT&T customers to do just that.
