This example demonstrates How to Count Occurrences of Each Character in String in Android.

Step 1 − Create a new project in Android Studio, go to File ⇒ New Project and fill all required details to create a new project.

Step 2 − Add the following code to res/layout/activity_main.xml.

<?xml version = "1.0" encoding = "utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout xmlns:android = "http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
   xmlns:tools = "http://schemas.android.com/tools"
   android:layout_width = "match_parent"
   android:layout_height = "match_parent"
   tools:context = ".MainActivity"
   android:orientation = "vertical">
   <EditText
      android:id = "@+id/name"
      android:layout_width = "match_parent"
      android:hint = "Enter Name"
      android:layout_height = "wrap_content" />
   <LinearLayout
      android:layout_width = "wrap_content"
      android:layout_height = "wrap_content">
      <Button
         android:id = "@+id/save"
         android:text = "Save"
         android:layout_width = "wrap_content"
         android:layout_height = "wrap_content" />
   </LinearLayout>
   <TextView
      android:id = "@+id/textview"
      android:layout_width = "match_parent"
      android:layout_height = "match_parent" />
</LinearLayout>

In the above code, we have taken name when user click on button, it will check occurrence of letter in string and gives result in textview.

Step 3 − Add the following code to src/MainActivity.java

package com.example.andy.myapplication;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.support.v7.app.AppCompatActivity;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.ArrayAdapter;
import android.widget.EditText;
import android.widget.ListView;
import android.widget.TextView;
import android.widget.Toast;
import java.util.ArrayList;
import java.util.Collections;
import java.util.HashMap;
import java.util.HashSet;
import java.util.Set;
public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {
   EditText name;
   HashMap<Character,Integer> charCountMap;
   TextView textview;
   @Override
   protected void onCreate(Bundle readdInstanceState) {
      super.onCreate(readdInstanceState);
      setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
      name = findViewById(R.id.name);
      textview = findViewById(R.id.textview);
      charCountMap = new HashMap<>();
      findViewById(R.id.save).setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
         @Override
         public void onClick(View v) {
            if (!name.getText().toString().isEmpty()) {
               char[] strArray = name.getText().toString().toCharArray();
               for(char charItem:strArray) {
                  if(charCountMap.containsKey(charItem)) {
                     charCountMap.put(charItem,charCountMap.get(charItem)+1);
                  } else {
                     charCountMap.put(charItem,1);
                  }
               }
               textview.setText(charCountMap.toString());
               Toast.makeText(MainActivity.this, "Inserted", Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
            } else {
               name.setError("Enter NAME");
            }
         }
      });
   }
}

Let's try to run your application. I assume you have connected your actual Android Mobile device with your computer. To run the app from android studio, open one of your project's activity files and click Run  icon from the toolbar. Select your mobile device as an option and then check your mobile device which will display your default screen –

In the above result, we are getting number of occurance of characters in textview.
