Wrapping Up1:34 with Ben Jakuben
You are now officially an expert communicator! Let's take a quick review of all the things we learned in this course.
All right. 0:00 You are now officially an expert communicator. 0:01 As of today, you will never send the wrong data anywhere ever again. 0:04 Let's bring back our handy list and review everything we've covered. 0:08 The first thing we did was to review intents, and 0:12 how we can add extra data to them. 0:14 This is really the cornerstone of inter-component communication in Android. 0:16 Intents are passed around within apps, from activities to services. 0:20 And back and from one app to another or even broadcast to the whole system. 0:24 We then learn how to be good listeners. 0:30 We saw how intent filters are used to route intents to 0:32 things that can handle them. 0:35 And how the data from intents can be unpacked and used in the new context. 0:36 We followed up with some exploration of broadcasting and 0:41 receiving data on a much wider level. 0:44 Always remember that broadcast receivers can help us be aware of state 0:47 changes to an Android device, which at times can really help and 0:50 enhance a user's experience. 0:53 Lastly, we reviewed and 0:56 enhanced some local notifications that help users know what's going on. 0:58 Even when our app is no longer in the foreground. 1:01 My intention was to get you excited about the power of intents in Android. 1:04 What do you think? 1:09 Are you ready to integrate your app with others? 1:10 I do have one final warning though. 1:13 You are now spoiled. 1:15 If you develop for other platforms, you will find yourself saying. 1:16 I wish I could use an intent for this. 1:20 In fact, even in real life you'll come across things where it be nice to wrap up 1:22 your intentions and send them off to be handled by something else. 1:25 Good luck and have fun on the next part of your journey with Android. 1:29 Thanks for being here and see you later. 1:32
