Switching to app development?
Ive started Treehouse in December taking the web development pathway, but its just not as exciting for me as I believe it would be learning to build apps.Ive passed the CSS portion and debating would it be a good switch to learn to build apps? Thanks

What could go wrong? You can also do them side by side! Web development and app development are extremely different so you're likely not to get them confused.

Web development requires many different disciplines. It will take time, practice, curiosity and patience - patience with yourself.
When at the end of a course or badge, if you see Extra Credit or if they talk about project ideas to work on your own, do them. Getting through courses fast is meaningless if you can't retain and apply the knowledge.

One of the great things about Treehouse is the ability to "jump around" in the Library and sample courses. If you think that native app development might be more your speed, take a course and see. If you like it, switch tracks (you can always return to the Web Development track later without loosing your progress).
Just my thoughts.
