Here’s a guide on how to create an Android Software Project in Eclipse. First you need to download the Android SDK from google. It comes with Eclipse already.
1.) Right click on the Project Explorer tab and select “New”> “Project”
2.) In the wizard window select “Android”>”Android Application Project”
3.) The “New Android Application” window opens. Type on the Application name, then it will auto fill on the Project Name and Package Name.
4.) Also select the Minimum Required SDK from lowest version to highest. Selecting SDK version will matter for the availability of Activity Pages.
5.) On the next window in “Configure Launcher Icon”, you may select a launcher icon. this icon will be the launch icon on your Android Phone. Example is that blue “f” square icon for Facebook or the “g+” red square icon in Google.
6.) Then select the Activity, Blank Activity is the most basic, then moving to Master/Detail Flow which will have more complicated auto-generated framework code.
I just updated this post with screenshots.
