About this Course

Here is one important question Android developers ask while making apps: "How can I do ________ in Android?"

The following are versions of this question that we came across recently:

  • How can I add radio buttons to my app?
  • How can I play a sound?
  • How can I navigate between multiple screens?

This course is a collection of such questions and their answers.

By the end of this course you will have mastered the ability to implement new Android features by reading a blog or article — this is a critical skill possessed by professional Android developers. As a result, you will also be able to use several User Interface components — like Toggle Buttons, Menus, Grid View and many more — that are central to making functional and delightful Android apps.

Prerequisites and Requirements

You will need to know the very basics of Android programming (Java) to be successful in this course. If you are completely new to programming, you should take Android Development For Beginners before enrolling in this course.

We will use Android Studio to build our apps, so you should have access to a computer that can run Android Studio in order to follow along (see Android Studio's System Requirements for details).

Access to an Android device is helpful, but not at all required.

Finally, the most important prerequisite is a willingness to learn new things, and belief that you can do this!

See the Technology Requirements for using Udacity.

Why Take This Course

Android powers over 80 percent of the world’s smartphones, and represents an incredible opportunity for developers everywhere. The next billion people coming online will interact with the internet for the very first time on a mobile device.

Building for Android gives you the best opportunity to reach these users and make an impact — both in your community, and on the world.
