    What kind of app are you looking to create. If you're just looking into how to build an app in general, Google & Amazon will provide a whole wealth of information for you.
    Good luck & let us know how you make out.

    You also need a good wealth of java background to get started with the android source.

    To create an android app, you'll need to learn Android Programming language (Nearly exactly the same as 'Java Programming Language', so if you learn Java, you'll learn so much for Android, only a few differences

    1st: Download and install the Java Development Kit (JDK). Download Windows 32-bit (x86) version or Windows 64-bit (x64) version or Go to this link to view list of JDK downloads (Java SE Development Kit 6u26).

    2nd: Download and install the Android SDK. Click here to download Windows (.exe) version or Go to this link to view any other platforms or latest version (Android SDK | Android Developers). NOTE: DO NOT install the android sdk in a directory on yuor computer that has spaces (E.g: Don't install it in C:\Program Files\Android\android-sdk because there is a SPACE between 'Program' and 'Files' in "Program Files". Instead, you can install it in a location like C:\android-sdk which is where I installed it).

    3rd: Download and install an IDE for Java Developers. Eclipse IDE is the best one for windows, recommended by Android. You can download either "Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers" or "Eclipse ISE for Java Developers". Java EE has got more features but a little more bigger in space, but that doesn't matter. Download Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developer: Windows 32-bit (x86) version or Windows 64-bit (x64) version or Go to this link to view the full list of Eclipse downloads or the latest version if you are viewing this post late.

    4th: After installing Eclipse, you'll need to download and install the "ADT plugin". To do this, open up Eclipse and go to Help > Install new software... Click on Add. For Name:, write ADT Plugin and for Location:, type https://dl-ssl.google.com/android/eclipse/. If that doesn't work, for Location:, type http://dl-ssl.google.com/android/eclipse/. Click OK and let it install.

    5th: After the ADT plugin is installed. you need to locate the Android SDK in Eclipse. To do this, go to Window > Prefrences and click on / highlight Android. Under SDK Location:, browse to your android sdk directory. Remember, I said, I installed it in C:\android-sdk, locate it where you installed the SDK.

    6th: Now you'll need to build your virtual device so that, when building your app, you can view and use your app on your computer to see how it looks like. It's like an android simulator to test your app. To do this, go to Window > Android SDK and AVD Manager. Click on New... and input your:
    Name to identify your AVD.
    Target to specify your android version (use the version that you're going to create an app which is 'what platform version and above of android does your app require to run - click here to view the versions that most people have so that your app is compatible with a greater audience of people - as you can see from the chart, it is a good idea to use version Android 2.1 (API Level 7) or maybe Android 2.2 (API Level 8) if you're app is going to be more crazy/advanced and use alot more features with the disadvantage of reaching 11.7% less of the android audience. Remember, the less the version, some really advanced things might not work, so you'll have to find a different way around to write some features.
    SD Card Size 100mb (MiB) is more than enough.
    For Built-in under Skin it's best to use HVGA.
    After you're done creating it by clicking Create AVD, select it, and click Start... to see if it works. NOTE: it might take a long time.

    7th: You're done and ready to create your app. Start a New project before you start learning through tutorials. Go to File > New > Project... and select Android > Android project and click Finish.
    Project Name: Name of the folder in your computer of your project
    Build Target: Minimum android version to use your app, as explained before in Step 6.
    Application Name: Name of your App (What it shows like in the Android Market and on the phone menu.
    Package Name: Unique package name for android to identify your app on the market. Use com.companyname.appname (It has to have com at the beginning. For companyname write your company name and For appname write your App's name.
    Create Activity: The main activity of your app (If you don't understand, just type Main.
    Min SDK Version: This should be done automatically if you selected you're 'Build Target'. If not, just type in the API level of your Build Target.
    CLICK 'Finish'.
