There is actually a new project coming soon according to the RoadMap -

Build a Self-Destructing Message Android App

By Ben Jakuben

In the Self-Destructing Message app we will build on the concepts learned in previous Android projects to create an app that will allow users to send photo or video messages to other users that will be deleted once viewed. The app will be tab-based, meaning we will cover Fragments, and we'll dive further into layouts, list views, and the Activity lifecycle. The backend of the app will be built on Parse.com's popular cloud storage services, which will handle user accounts and file and message storage.

Coming Fall 2013

If we keep paying they'll keep making! :)

I'm dying to get back to Android! I've had a lot of fun with my iOS course that is being released today, but my :heart: lies with Android. I will try to get the next project up as soon as possible. I'll update the roadmap with more specific dates as I make progress.

In next Android project, do you use Database?

Not exactly. We'll utilize Parse.com as a backend, which is an abstraction of a database. But we don't cover SQL Lite or anything like that. I do plan on covering that in the future, but I don't have any timetable at this point as my next few projects are getting lined up.

Ben,

I'm glad to hear you will be adding the new Android course (which looks like it will mirror the iOS course). Not to pile on with the requests, but I would also love to see a Deep Dive on Android Foundations, similar to the iOS one

I've started planning for that as well! But it's a bit further out at this point--I'm not sure about the exact order we'll get to it. To be continued...
