Difference between courses
Can anyone tell me the difference between this course and the older course? the only difference i see is that this is called build a simple android app with java while the older course is titled build a simple android app. but didnt we use java in the older version?

The first thing I think is worth noting, as you have done, is the title. This course is title "with Java" and I think, this is for a specific purpose. Java isn't the only language out there you can use to make Android Apps. Recently Kotlin was adopted as a native language on Android Studio to make apps. I'm guessing, and maybe Ben Jakuben and Ben Deitch can back me up on this there will be a similar course to this for learning to make apps in Kotlin.
Plus it'll be a version of the course with more up to date build tools which cannot be a bad thing. :-)
Android hasn't had as much new content here on Treehouse in recent months in other topics but I have a little feeling this is about to change.
