Thanks for that, where would I be able to learn the code? And just how much would I need to learn?
Steve, the place to start is http://developer.android.com/guide/index.html
the official android developer site. There you can download the sdk, which is the software you will need to make your programs, and find helpful info on how to make android apps. There are lots of resources for learning to program on the internet. Also if your totally new to programming I would get a beginners book on java, since java is the language android uses. Programming is not easy, there is alot to learn, but is also lots of fun. You may enjoy it
