In this Android app development course, leading Android developers will talk you through important topics relating to Android apps development in a series of video presentations. The lessons include an architecture overview of Android apps. Here, you will learn the application lifecycle of Android as well as discuss Android API. API, or Application Program Interface, is a technical development environment that allows access to another party's application or platform. This course will make all of this crystal clear.

As you become familiar with the concepts of Android technology, you will learn about Android app development, its anatomy, and Android app tools and publishing. You will study the different development tools such as Eclipse, Netbeans, and IntelliJ, and the Android User Interface (which is what your user sees and interacts with). The course will then guide you through adapters, background and images, drawing and invalidating, hierarchy viewer, views and layouts, and memory allocations.

The Google Play store had over 2.8 million Android apps as of March 2017, higher than the Apple App Store’s 2.2 million and Microsoft Windows’ 669,000 apps.
