I only know C++ but I need to make a simple android app. I need it to access a web page that I created which displays text. From the text, the app will know what to display. All the app will be is buttons. If a button is pressed, all it does is sends an http request to my site which tells it to do something. It basically just accesses the website. So for example, if you hit the button names "ON" it would, in the background, go to www.mywebsite.com/on. The server will know what to do once it gets that request. I have already got that side working. I tested it with my phone by just using a web browser but I want to be able to do it better by using an application with simple buttons where it does everything in the background. Now as I was saying about reading the text.. the app should read the text from www.mywebsite.com and change the UI accordingly. So if the text it reads in says off, it knows to gray out the off button and enable the on button. This is all very simple but I do not know how to make this work and I need some guidance. I have downloaded everything and have eclipse up and running but I am not sure what to do. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Eclipse forums do not support Android development. That happens in
Android forums.

If you could give a snippet of what u have tried so far? But yes an android forum would obviously be more helpful. Forgive my ignorance but how does Eclipse help android?
