Learn How To Develop Android Apps

Share if the site was helpful

Coding is like printing your own money!!! 

Everyone has that one app idea that’s sure to be the next big thing, yet so many of these possibilities slip away unnoticed by the world.  The problem isn’t coming up with the idea, it’s crafting it into a tangible app people can download and share.   If you’ve been itching to turn an idea into reality and show the world what it’s been missing, then you’re in luck.

Phonlab’s newest course has officially been released, and to say we’re excited is an understatement.  The Android App Development course is designed to guide a student all the way from writing their first line of code ever to publishing apps on the Google Play Store.  We’ve built it to cover all the basics of Android while throwing in some snazzy features to make your creations more exciting for users.  By the end of the course you’ll not only be set up with the resources need to make a million-dollar app, but you’ll already have a portfolio of 5 apps to show off to family, friends, and potential employers.  

Here’s a quick rundown of the apps you’ll be building:

  1.  ScoreKeeper:  After learning about the basics of Java and XML this multi-sport score keeping app will show students how to build complex layouts.  Here we’ll make the jump to multiscreen apps with complex interactive layouts.  
  2.  SoundScape:  For app #2 students will learn how to include audio into their apps by building a soundboard with their own personal touches.  Audio’s not always a necessity in apps, but learning to include it can create a more immersive experience and really make your app pop.
  3.  NewsNet: In this app students will learn about this beautiful thing called the web and begin streaming live data into their apps.  We’ll consolidate articles from over 5,000 news sources into just one screen and learn some tricks the pros use to speed up development.
  4.  MyReads: Have you ever wanted to keep a log of every book you’ve ever read?  Well if so (and if not) app #4 of the course is centered around building a database for this very purpose.  We’ll learn about SQL, one of the most important languages in the data world, and learn how to share info between apps.
  5.  FireChat: In our 5th app students will build a group messaging app complete with social media incorporation by learning the syntax behind Android’s newest language Kotlin.  Kotlin has a bright future ahead of it, but online learning resources are currently few and far (Phonlab to the rescue!)

These apps are the bedrock of the education, but of course we want to set you up for success, so there are lots of other topics covered along the way.  These include how to use Github to build projects with a team of developers, and diving into the depths of object oriented programming.

Whether you want to learn as a (lucrative) career choice, or as a side hobby, there’s no better time to begin your journey, and we want to be by your side all the way.

WileyFox The New CyanogenMod Phone

WileyFox is the name of a new OEM coming to town that will be offering two phones. Swift is the phone shown above and is there budget friendly model at just $200.00 US.  The Storm is there flagship devices at just $300.00 US. But the best part about this new WileyFox company is that these 2 phones will come with CyanogenMod 12.1 on them and will be supported by CM. This reminds me of the OnePlus one and i am really looking forward to checking out the WileyFox Swift for sure and maybe even the Storm. Now that you know CM is the OS you are probably wondering what are the specs on these Foxy phones. Scroll down. I dont see anything really grown breaking in these specs but for the price and the OS it should still be a interesting device.
