Hi Venkatachalam,

I've found Android concepts fairly easy to learn. However, the Android Developer's Guide provides alot of material, and this material might seem overwhelming at first.

As I started to progress through this guide last year, I wrote a pair of articles to reinforce what I was learning. These articles are hosted on my website, and you might find them helpful as you start working through the guide:

  • Android Activity Lifecycle
  • Hello, Android!

  • Additionally, I found Google's Dan Morrill's Inside the Android Application Framework video's discussion of activities, services, tasks, and other concepts quite helpful. I encourage you to watch this video.

    All the best.

    Jeff
