I know it takes alot of time to develop apps but im ready to spend my time so kindly let me know how can u start learning java at home? and should i learn anything before learning that as i dont know a word about programming

That's a download for Java tutorials. To actually do them you'll need a compiler. I use jGrasp but there are many others you can use. Eclipse is pretty popular and they all do the same thing basically. A compiler can be downloaded on the internet, and you'll need to download Java from Sun Microsystems as well. Just to let you know you gotta be pretty dedicated, it takes a lot of time to make good apps. Google's App inventor is an alternative to learning code.

This may get you started:
http://download.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/

But if you're never programmed in any language, you need to take an intro to programming course.

I don't have anything I can recommend. But there's tons of info online. Just do a google search for 'Intro to programming'. That's how I found this:

You cant try this Stanford University lectures on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/user/Stanford...A56BC7F4A1F852 ..or just search for "Mehran Sahami Programming Methodology" in itunes U if you use itunes.. Same lectures. I think its a really good starting point.
