    Very useful compilation Robin. There are so many Android development blogs online, it’s hard to know what’s the best way to get started. And what most of the people don’t understand is that it’s essential to have good exposure to Java before you start learning development for Android. That way, everything from these Android tutorials
    will make sense to them.
