I can't consider myself an expert, but from my experience from learning programming (android or anything else), i'm learning by doing.
First i learn the basic of course, then try to make some simple apps or games, then asking question on a forum like this when facing problem I can't solve myself.

From what I know, there's no easy way (or fast way) of learning programming.
If you only want to make an android app or game a fast way, then i suggest using game maker or something.

Does anyone know where I can get a tutorial on how to start building up an android "game" app? I found a few but I am unsure if they're outdated and I'd rather start with something thats up to date. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

Check out this link. I have made a collection of good tutorials that I found on the Internet. For the game app check these links:

Don't start with examples. If you already know java, read android fundamentals else starts with java and then android fundamentals.
Below is the link It has all the fundamental concepts and components explained nicely.
https://developer.android.com/guide/...damentals.html

There are several site like tuturialspoint, http://www.zoftino.com/, vogella etc. which provide tutorials, examples and sample code.

Spend time and understand those concepts so that you'll have solid base to go ahead with examples, coding and building apps which perform better and provide best user experience.

As others have pointed out, it greatly depends on whether you have already "met" another programming language (C#, C++, ...) or not. Going from C++/C# to Java is incredible easy and you perhaps don't need to study Java a lot, you can jump on Android straight away. (Google's developer pages are excellent start).

However, if you don't know anything, I'd recommend to familiarise with Java first, on your PC. Because learning two things (programming in Java + Android ecosystem) is much harder. Not impossible, just harder.

So as soon as you get your basic loops, ifs, classes working, you can take a look at Android examples (so you can actually read them).
