Lesson 1: Intents and Activities

Introduce yourself to the Miwok language app and create multiple screens within the app. You'll build Activities and link them together using Intents and a new way of using buttons.

Lesson 2: Data, Loops, and Custom Classes

Begin to harness the real power of object-oriented programming by building your own custom class to store real-life data, and use loops to show that data to the user.

Lesson 3: Images and Visual Polish

Apps become really impressive when they become really gorgeous. In this lesson, you'll learn how to add images to your app and how to polish the layout and user interface.

Lesson 4: Audio and Libraries

Make use of the vast Android ecosystem as you learn to play audio in your app using an external library. This gives you the foundation for making use of the huge Android development community to build your apps!

Optional Lesson 5: Fragments

Learn about fragments and the process of refactoring a user interface. In this optional lesson, you'll re-build the layout of the Miwok app to respond to a designer's feedback.

  • Dimitrios Tosidis completed this course, spending 8 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.

    It is a great introduction to the intents, adapter pattern and the intent tabs. You can learn, how to switch fragments and make generic object types. You can play also with audio, pictures and resources. A great experience for someone, who wants to see an architecture.
