Wrapping Up1:39 with Ben Jakuben
Congratulations on finishing another Android app! Let's do a very quick review and talk about a few ways you can practice these new skills.
- What Employers Are Looking for in a Junior Android Dev - Some advice on getting a job as a junior Android developer
Animate Your Story
Simple view animations are a fun and easy way to impact the user experience. See if you can fade the story image in and out using this example code from StackOverflow. (P.S. We also have a full Animations and Transitions course.
Business Cards for Pets
Create a simple app with two Activities: one that shows a profile picture of an animal with its name, and another that has additional details about it. Hook it up so that tapping on your image "flips" the card over, showing the detail activity.
Write an app that asks the user for their favorite color, then take them to a new Activity that uses that color as a background color and says something nice about them.
Design a fake login or signup screen that asks users for a username and password and has a button that pretends to log them in by taking them to a new Activity. Then just display their data in that new activity.
Ask a user to input their age in years, and then take them to a new Activity that shows their age in days, weeks, months, decades, minutes, etc.
