True, and sadly that is not very good help for a lot of people. It's way too much to try and comprehend. Don't get me wrong, the product is great and the samples are valuable. But a little too much code to try and understand for those meddling with Android, AR or both for the first time.

melbeialy, unfortunately I don't think there is a better way than to compile the ImageTargets sample according to the instructions on the site and then try to go through the code (this may induce hair tearing or similar behaviour).

First of all if you know [B" />nothing[/B" /> about AR I'd suggest googling some info - http://bit.ly/u0WwAC

As for developing AR Android apps vuforia is pretty good. They have well written, commented samples and you can develop using Unity.

Like DavidBeard said, take a look at the Getting Started Guide

"How can I start?" is maybe a little vague.
Can you more specific of what you want to know?
