I recently come across a tool called MIT App Inventor 2 which prompted me to create an Android Development Beginners Guide. I always had an interest in learning how to build native mobile apps without extensive knowledge of coding.
A group of students from MIT built a visual builder for making it so easy to build apps. Now I recommend reviewing some YouTube videos on getting started. I have found a gold mine from Derek Banas that has created a wealth of handy information from getting started to more advance techniques.
