Overview

This course is deprecated. We recommend taking Advanced Android App Development instead.

In this course, you’ll learn everything from how to add maps to your Android app, to how to build a virtual hike down the Grand Canyon!

This course is part of the Google Play Services series, which features a variety of different Google APIs. Designed as standalone short courses, you can take any course on its own, or take them all!



Why Take This Course?

Maps! Everybody uses maps, and many people love them. Maps on mobile devices have changed the world over the last few years. They not only provide a local map in your pocket, but also a map of the entire world, down to street level, and even a 3D flyaround of many major cities.

If you want to be a professional Android developer and are planning to build or enhance apps that use Google's mapping functionality, this is the course for you.
