Top 5 Forums for Android Developers

In the crazy world of app development, it’s essential to be part of a strong online community for those frustrating times when you hit a roadblock or don’t even know where to begin on something. For mobile app developers, the opportunity to share ideas, answer questions and ask others is of unparalleled value. Below are the some of the top forums on the Internet today that provide a wealth of information to Android developers, both experienced and just beginning.

Here the great visionary minds of Android app development gather to share ideas, talk about monetization and learn from each other.

1) AndroidForums.com

This busy community is practically buzzing with posts. AndroidForums.com as a whole is intended for Android developers to ask one another questions when they’re stumped. They have a whole sub-forum devoted to developers and creative discussions, one dedicated to app announcements, and even one for Alpha & Beta testing. One of the most appealing resources on the page linked above is entitled: Developer 101. This is a fantastic place for beginning developers looking to collect tips & tutorials on how to get started and what sorts of tricks of the trade will work for them.

2) Making Money with Android

Making Money with Android is a forum that is dedicated to exactly what it implies: making money. This is a great place to find bug-fixing & testing suggestions, answers to questions and of course, ideas for new apps and how to implement them. The forum places more of an emphasis of the monetization side of owning an app as opposed the technical issues one may encounter. What I like most about this forum is that every time I’ve interacted with someone on it, it has led to a generally positive, intelligent discussion.

3) Anddev.org

This developer’s forum is home to android developers around the entire globe. The Anddev.org forums are full to bursting with up to date threads that tackle a veritable army of technical issues, problems, and code-ridden tutorials. Here programmers will not only find answers to questions involving coding and mapping, but also novice and advanced tutorials. The FAQ is extensive and the proverbial “think tank” is brimming with fresh ideas.

4) AndroidPIT

This community is open to the public with a heavy focus on Smartphone-specific technology. Yet, true to form, the Android artists have taken over a corner of the AndroidPIT forum for their own purposes, and it is here that like-minded developers will find a safe-haven to share promotional strategies. The community is not as active as others, but maintains a respectable level of activity while providing useful information, tips, tricks and suggestions of the trade.

5) Devshed

Devshed has graciously provided an entire subforum to the denizens of the Android development community. Some of the moreexciting topics for discussion include App Development Training Courses as well as insights into gaming development platforms. Overall the topics on this forum are more scattered with broad topics, but it’s nice if you’re new to the community and looking for something you don’t want to be overwhelmed by.

All in all, whether you are a beginning developer or an experienced one, you are sure to find the community you are looking for in one or more of these online places.

We’d also love to hear about other Android forums and communities that mobile app developers have had experience with (whether it was positive or negative), so please share those with us via Apptopia’s Facebook page!

  12. I found perfect site for creating apps…Yesterday I ended up on some site called apps-machine.com . I have to share it with you guys. I started creating my own app and after 15 minutes clicking on their control panel(no programming,just clicks) I made app in what user could make effects on their photos,paint photos,play music,play videos,have notepad,chat and stream music. They got literally 1000′s of features on their control panel :D I think this could be a gold mine :P :P And I read something that they have free app development and so on. Aaand you can change everything all the backgrounds,colors,tabs…and you instantly see it on that same page through their simulator..don’t know how they managed to do that but it is super handy…I am super excited at the moment..time to get some apps on apple and play store :D :D
