Hope this is the appropriate place for this but I'm interested in learning how to make my own game apps for smartphones and was wondering if anyone could guide me to a good place as to where to start.
Google just throws up a load of "buy my software to make apps" adverts so that doesn't help much.
What I've found so far is apparently Java is used to make android apps and other programs such as codeX are used for making ones that will work on apple products.
My first reaction is to just start going through these video tutorials on Java app producing. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SUOWNXGRc6g&list=PL2F07DBCDCC01493A&index=1
However if anyone knows anything else obvious I should be doing/learning I would appreciate it.
Thanks in advance
P.s. I take it there is no way to make an app that will run on both an android device and an apple one with the same code?
