    I have done some programming in the past so I think I would like to create my own app.

    I have found several online courses but they are all based on videos with some guy spouting. I am not a verbal learner it is simply double dutch to me.

    It reminds me of the chemistry teacher at school I spent the entire lessons looking out of the window and simply got a book from the library.

    So please are there any online courses with no audible content? Books are rather expensive.

    It depends on what programming language you would like to learn, there are many courses online I've tried Welcome - Learn Java - Free Interactive Java Tutorial for Java maybe this will help you. Or just look on Google, i know it's a cliche but it helps !

    Many thanks for the link. I have done visual basic in the past so hopefully can convert to Java.

    I want an alarm clock app with a date as well and seems there is nothing suitable, so perhaps the answer is to create my own.

    Oracle's own tutorials are pretty good for Java:


    For some exercises when you know a bit more about java:


    For coding on Android you'll need to download the Android ADT which has eclipse add an IDE (I'd actually do this first as you can code java only (ie not Android) programs with it too):


    You can then access some of the tutorials on the Android developers website to learn how to program for mobile devices (there are also plenty on the web).

    My tip: a when coding your Android apps connect an Android device to your pc and run your app on the device rather than testing it on the emulator. The emulator is slow. The emulator is best used for testing your app on other devices one you have your app up and running on your real device.

    Being an Android forum, I don't think this will be very popular..

    But I remember looking into this a while back and noticed a ton of great content on iTunes U pertaining to programming languages and writing apps.
