Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I don't understand why Stack Exchange has created a separate network for Android when they already have tags in all of their programming networks? Is this a beginning of language specific network? Can we expect more specific networks in future like:

  • etc.

If you read the FAQ it doesn't have anything to do with coding:

If your question generally covers...

  • Using your Android device
  • Using a particular app on your Android device
  • Trying to solve an error or other issue in using your Android

then this is the right place to ask. Basically, what problem (with your Android device) are you trying to solve?

In fact it's explicitly excluded:

Please note the following topics are expressly off-topic here:

  • Developing/programming for Android (please ask these questions on Stack Overflow)

So, no. I don't expect to see any time soon.

1 is another example of a "non programming questions" site... – Lix Aug 5 '12 at 12:25
How about tools for Android development, such as this question which was voted off topic on Stack Overflow? – FriendFX Jan 29 '14 at 0:31
If you're asking for my opinion about where that should go I'd guess nowhere @FriendFX. I'm not going to claim that I know well but that sort of question is normally off-topic everywhere because the answers will just be a series of links to external sites which will degrade over time, while everyone votes on their favourite link. You can comment and ask the author if they found the answer to their question elsewhere... they might still be able to help you. – ben is uǝq backwards Jan 29 '14 at 7:53

The Android site is for end-users, it is not a developer site. Questions about Android programming are off-topic there.

Sites that are proposed on Area 51 that are a full subset of an existing sites are usually not created, but the proposal is closed by SE staff.
