Welcome to my resources page. Here I will post links to all of the useful tools I like to use for android development.


Dropbox

This tool is amazing. I like to keep all of my assets as well as local copies of my code on Dropbox. You can have Dropbox sync with all of your devices.

Because my data is accessible anywhere, I’m able to work on my projects anywhere I go. If you use my link below we will both get an extra 500 mb’s of space if you create a basic account (free). If you create a Pro account (paid) we both get one extra gig! Make sure to follow the steps here to earn the extra space.

BlueHost Web Hosting

Once you’ve created your app, it’s important to show it to the world. Having a website for your app can help you gain exposure to potential customers. Having an online portfolio of your creations can help you earn your next client. I’ve been with BlueHost for several years now. Their customer service has always been responsive and their c-panel looks professional and is easy to navigate. Did I mention they are very affordable? Many of their hosting plans are less than $10 a month! Click here to check them out.

Material Design Color Palette Tool

I’ve discovered an excellent tool to help developers figure out their app’s color palette. Pick two main colors and see a preview of what they would look like in a mobile app preview. I’ve been using it for a while now and love it! Check it out at materialpalette.com This site is apart of material.uplabs.com where you can find a lot of material design inspiration. Did I mention the tool is free to use?

Android Button Tool

Have you ever wanted to create a custom Android button? This tool from AngryTools can help you in your quest of rounded edges. It is not limited to just round buttons, you can create all sorts of types. What I love about the tool, is it generates the java and xml code for you. The tool even shows you where to place it in your project. Check it out on their tools page here.
