What tools do you need to begin developing Android Apps:

1. An IDE (Integrated Development Environment) for example: Eclispe, Android Studio, IntelliJ
2. The ADT (Android Developer Tools plugin) for eclipse: http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html
3. Android SDK (Software Development Kit) - The Android SDK provides you the API libraries and developer tools necessary to build, test, and debug apps for Android.

If you're a new Android developer, we recommend you download the ADT Bundle to quickly start developing apps. It includes the essential Android SDK components and a version of the Eclipse IDE with built-in ADT (Android Developer Tools) to streamline your Android app development.

With a single download, the ADT Bundle includes everything you need to begin developing apps:

1. Eclipse + ADT plugin 
2. Android SDK Tools
3. Android Platform-tools
4. The latest Android platform
5. The latest Android system image for the emulator

Important sites for reference and download: 

1. Main Website: http://developer.android.com/index.html
2. Traning classes: http://developer.android.com/training/index.html
3. Tutorials: http://www.tutorialspoint.com/android/android_resources.htm
4. Tutorials: http://www.vogella.com/tutorials/Android/article.html

Its been a long read, but if you are still reading, kudos to you.
