New to the BC Forums, i searched the topic before posting, mostly i found people asking a question in their programming, or looking for a program like basic4android.

Just for the record, i have no programming experience at all. I went though and looked at several developer platforms, and read through some documentation that is suppose to help explain it. But without actually working with whichever program it's a bit like trying to read a foreign language.

Anyway, my current situation is i can dream up ideas left and right, but have no means to implement them. First is the android app.

We've all seen Barcode scanners, and yeah, they take pictures of barcodes, look up the UPC code in google and return whatever result they find... yipitty doo-da. My idea takes this all a step further.

But i desperately need any and all advise to getting started or someone to program it for me.

I've looked at the basic4android software, and will probably purchase it, since i like the GUI more so than others i have looked at. So far, if i remember correctly, i've had MotoDev, and i think i had eclipse (if its free yes, if not, then no)

Thank you all for your help, with all sorts of things (i've been lurking for about a year now)

What questions specifically do you have? "I desperately need any and all advise to getting started" is a bit like asking "how do I get started building house/restaurant/skyscraper", which of course the answer is "it depends".

actually, i hadn't thought much about it when i posted that. I'd been up for too long... i'm still planning the UI. Feel free to delete.

Thank you for taking the time to comment though.
