Android Build a Simple Android App (retired 2014) Interrogating the App Toast Notifications

Are there many differences between the old version of the course build a simple android app and the new one?

I started the course one month ago more or less and I haven´t studied it for a while so now I´ve come back and I´ve seen that there´s a new version of it. It´s worthy to repeat the course from the very first part or I should continue with the old one? I reached 4/6 of the course.

Thanks in advance

The new course uses Android studio, while the old one uses eclipse. If you want to get a feel of how android studio works you can do that as well. It is pretty much the same though I have heard this new one is a bit simpler because it doesn't use things like the accelerometer. Overall you can continue the old one or try the new one.

Thanks for the quick response. I´ve started the course again to get familiar with the Android Studio tool. I hope this new version is not too simple although I´ve already used the accelerometer functionality.

It is simple, that's why it is called simple XD. It is as simple as needed for a beginner to understand, but the fact that you are using a different software makes it worth it to have a look at. Maybe you can just have a fast look at it, just to see more of android studio.
