    i don't do java apps. If you mean web app, I do do that.

    I do know 2 java developers. One in Groningen and another in Leeuwarden.

    The guy from Groningen has experience in facturing (invoices) and administrative apps, but he's dyslexic. The other guy from Leeuwarden coincidentally has done a freelance project via a Dutch company for a company in Texas, don't know what is was about, but I happen to have remembered him. I heard about him via a photographer also in Leeuwarden. The one from Groningen is very busy right now. I don't know him personally, only via a guy also in Groningen, who is in marketing and events. I may actually meet the java developer from Groningen face-to-face tomorrow.

    They can do that.

    For a web app I can help you with that, but downloadable for mobiles, like android or iOS, I can't do that yet.

    start by learning java. All of them apps are made in java. For clarity that's JAVA not javascript.

    what cemex said...

    java eclipse is a great program to develop java programs, it comes with a neat debugger. You may also want to install JAVA JDK and Notepad++

    oh and some further advice. Besides the books you'll also need programs and a developing environment and compiler for Java. I recommend the following: Eclipse Java EE, Notepad++ and JDK 8

    since you're gonna go over the net. I recommend you read about sockets. No socket = no internet with java. Especially TCP is important.

    I can tell you right now, this ain't as easy as learning HTML.
