I dont believe so. I think you just come to the forums and share your experiences or ask for help, I could be mistaken. Which is kind of good if so, it makes you work on your own to really figure it out. If you really understand what you just did in the app you should be able to get around the extra credit with just asking for help here if needed since there are people who have already been through it themselves. I think those extra credits are key to really learning this stuff though. One of the coolest things I did was make a weather app based off the Blog Reader app JSON features using the forecast.io api Ben mentioned. It was a contest here and not extra credit, but same idea anyway. I was too late to submit for the contest but it was a great experience anyway. I then added location services to get the current location of the device and all that, cool stuff. Im still building on the app when i have time or feel like it. Anyway good luck, post up problems you have here, ive found a few answers to my questions just by looking through the forum and not even having to ask myself.

They should post the answers to the extra credit. Seems obvious to do so, are they just lazy?
