With its intuitive and open-source platform and support from the huge mobile phone manufacturers HTC, Samsung and Sony Ericsson, Androids year-on-year smart-phone marketshare has shown a massive growth of 886%! Just to put this into perspective, the iPhone has shown only 61% growth. These figures may give you an insight into the popularity of both platforms, but in actual fact, it shows that it is mobile app developers who are the real winners. With smartphones becoming ever more popular, there has never been a better time to jump on the mobile app development bandwagon, and especially on the rapidly growing open Android platform.

Compared to other platforms, Android does not rely on a proprietary OS that restricts the use of third-party applications (off-topic: US regulators have recently announced it was lawful to hack or jailbreak an iPhone), it is an open-source and level alternative. And this reflects in its now huge development community, were everything, from samples, tutorials, GUI downloads... all seem to be freely offered. It is on that theme in which this article focuses. We have selected our favorite 20 free to use, some open-source, tools, resources, guides and downloads that will hopefully help you with your next Android app.
