App- programming

One aspect of programming that is becoming rampant now is app programming.


The use of mobile phones is increasing which is leading…

… to high demand for mobile apps.

Look at those amazing apps on your phone.

How will you feel if you can create one by yourself?


That is what this post is all about.

How to develop an android and iOS app for beginners.

The Basic Things You Need

Put this at the back of your mind:

Most mobile apps make use of database and, that means…

… You will need to create back end and front end for your app.

Except if you want to create a mobile app that does not use a database.

So, to create a database:

In most cases, you will need some knowledge of SQL.

But if you don’t want to go the database route, at least for now.

You can develop some skills on front end development.

Just HTML, CSS and JavaScript will give you all you need.

The three Programming languages above are not so difficult to learn if…

You are willing to put in the work required.


If you have some basic knowledge of HTML and CSS, you can start with JavaScript because:

JavaScript has some platforms that you can use to develop the back end of your app.

Such platforms are Node.js and for the database, MongoDB.

So where and how do you learn how to develop a mobile app?

Read on.

The two most popular mobile app platforms are Android and iOS.

It will be good if you can start with any of these two.

How To Code An App For iPhone

This is the platform used for iOS apps.

All the apps on your iPad and iPhone were built on this platform.

It is only on a Mac computer that you can program an iOS app because you will need Xcode which does not run on any other machine except Mac.

And the language used is objective-c.

There is no better place to learn how to develop an iOS app than the apple developer center itself.

You will be given all the required tutorials you’ll need, all for free.

The training will take you from how to build an app from scratch.

How To Create An Android App With Coding

Java programming language is what is used to develop android apps.

And software called Android Software Development Kit.

The software runs on all operating systems.

Another thing you will need is Eclipse which is the Integrated Development Environment used in Android app development.

You can get free tutorials at Android Developers Training.

The training will take you from how to develop an android app for beginners up to your first app.


Don’t limit yourself to these two training sites only.

You can also get some other free resources online apart from these official ones.

If you think you need more, here is a list of the popular programming languages for app programming


5 Top Programming language for App Development

These are the top app programming languages.


In app programming, HTML5 is the language that is usually used to develop the front end. 


This is the language used in iOS app programming.

Objective-c is the language used to build most of the apps on your iPhone.

The language is good for developing robust apps.


A lot of people like this using this language mainly because it is flexible.

Apps that are developed using Java are easy to update and reuse.


This is the app use for cocoa and cocoa touch.

C ++

C++ is a multipurpose programming language.

It used to develop programs for windows machine and it is widely used for mobile apps as well.


C sharp is the programming language behind the apps on windows phone.

Just like how objective-c is used in iOS.
