FULL DISCUSSION
 

Don't start with learning apps. You will learn apps, but not how to design a product.

Learn to see, first. Learn the fundamentals.

Drawing

You don't need to be awesome at drawing, but doing so trains your eye better than anything else.

My professor from Uni-Days wrote a thing to get started:

A quick beginner’s guide to drawing

He also did a TEDx-Talk on a related topic:

How drawing helps you think

Typography

Get any book on typography-basics and learn what makes a readable experience, a good composition and layout. Most websites, apps, digital products boil down to typography.

Product-Design

Modern apps and websites are closer to product-design, than to graphic-design. Learn what makes a product enjoyable and usable.
