I am doing research on android dev. I have some question here.
For example:
1. I have my own website that user can login to check their own detail. If i wan to develop an android application for this login page, what is the way? Can anyone help?
2. Because website already done. Now we wan to convert the website to Android application. How is the way to access the website server?

Thanks for your help.

#1 - The usual approach is to create a REST API which the mobile app connects to via HTTP. That API can run as part of the web app.

#2 - I'm not aware of tools to convert a web site to a mobile app - the usual approach would be to add a mobile friendly web site, or to make the web site mobile friendly via techniques like responsive design. (I'm not what you're asking in "How is the way to access the website server?" - if you were to convert a web site to a mobile app, then there would be no need to access the web site, yes?)

For my current website, My customer can login to edit their detail or check the point there have in their account.
So i wish to create an android application for my customer to login using the smart phone. This will make customer early can login in and check the account point.
Any ideal on how to create an android application for this case?

You mean, aside from developing it? No, like I said, I'm unaware of a web site-to-mobile app converter. (Nor do I think such a tool would make sense to create, but you never know what some people think makes sense.)

you can make you website with responsive design so that it can be looks better in mobile browser or you can use cordova like platform to build an android app using HTML pages.
