I'm having difficulty understanding were to start with a program I am trying to write. Maybe someone can help forward me to a relevant tutorial or concept.
My app idea, which I hope to offer on the Amazon app store, is a basic network fire manager application. I've tried just about everything available on the Amazon app store, and even side loaded a few APKs, but while file manager applications like "File Explorer" work great on android they are really badly optimized for the Fire line of Amazon streaming devices. The remote just doesn't work well and the interfaces are very difficult to use for the everyday user. The conclusion is I just want to build one myself, something my wife or 2 year old daughter could figure out. Once the network share is programmed, just flick through the folders find the video or picture you are looking for and play/view it with an application that is already installed like VLC, etc.
Right now I'm setting up the build environment, using Amazon's version of Android Studio. But I really have no idea where to begin with displaying text links that would be based on what's discovered in a network location. How would I generate text that is then "clickable" I'd like to start by optimizing for Samba shares and branch out from there. I will also keep the project open source, as I am a pretty greenhorn coder and could use the help!
