To be able to create applications for the Android tablets, no matter if they have 10 inches or not, first, you must be registered on the site as a paying developer, who wants to create apps for Google and who is willing to distribute them in the Google network. So, download the Android SDK. The link for download is available right here. You will be directed to the Tools page on the Google Android site and from there you will be able to download what you want, depending on what operating system you have. But be very careful, because the download link works only for those who are registered members of the Google community of developers.
The engineers advice you and me and everyone else who wants to download the tools to set the computer where all the developments will be made according to the conditions required by the SDK system. In other words, you may be able to download the tools, but if the computer is old, most likely many of them won’t run properly. So, do a bit of effort and see what your computer needs in order to be good to be used in developing apps for Google.
The starter package can be downloaded from the link I just provided. If you use Windows, Linux or Mac, be sure that you read the guide of installing the SDK that is recommended for your system, not for another one, because the things won’t match and you will start even from the first step complaining that the SDK does not work. Most of the developments that are made for Google are done in the Eclipse environment. Make sure to download another plugin to be used with Eclipse, otherwise the SDK won’t run. The ADT Plugin must be installed. You will get it on the same page.
The SDK must know that you develop for the Android platform, thus add this to the SDK system. Finally, explore the items that you have just downloaded to get accustomed with the interface of them and all. This is not obligatory, but it will be good for you when you will start working. You are paid hourly, so the client who gives you the job won’t wait for you to learn how to use Eclipse and SDK. You have to be accustomed with them.11
