Topics - Activities, Fragments, Explicit and Implicit intents, Using NotificationCompact to Show, Notifications, MediaPlayer & VideoView, Debugging Applications.
4. Customizing Widgets & Implementing Event Receivers
Learning Objectives - In this module you will learn to implement different collections widgets available in android like GridView, ListView and RecyclerView. We will also learn to implement one of the four essential components of Android development, which is Broadcast Receivers. We will also deep divining into Android canvas framework, which lets you draw different shapes on the screen.
Topics - GridView, ListView, RecyclerView, DrawerLayout, BroadcastReceivers (System & Custom), LocalBroadcastManager, Canvas & Paint .
5. Storage & Animations
Learning Objectives - In this module you will learn most important persistent frameworks in Android system, which is SharedPreference, and Android File System. We will learn to implement different types of animations provided by android system to create impressive android applications.
Topics - Internal & External File Storage, SharedPreference, Twin Animation, View Property Animation, FrameAnimation.
Learning Objectives - In this module, at times you will need to perform tasks that should prevent blocking the user from performing other tasks in the application. Here is when services and broadcast receivers come into play. You will learn the highly acclaimed API of Android framework, which is AsyncTask. We will also learn to implement SOAP Services. You will understand the concept of Retrofit library used for performing these Asynchronous tasks.
Topics - Exploring HttpUrlConnection, Thread & Runnable, Using AsyncTask to Fetch & Parse JSON, Using Retrofit to Fetch & Parse JSON, Implementing Soap Services.
7. Location & Google Map
Learning Objectives - In this module you will learn android location framework like GoogleMaps and Geocoder, which will help you to integrate location related functionality in your applications. You would also learn to draw markers on the map to show targeted locations to user and also perform animated zooming over the map.
Topics - Fetch Users Current Location, Reverse Geocoding using Geocoder, MapFragment, Showing Current Location on Map, Showing Markers on Map, Exploring different Map Types, Animated Zooming using Camera.
8. Database Framework & Third Party Libraries
Learning Objectives - In today’s world what app doesn't make use of saving and retrieving data? You will be learning most common mechanisms for doing this. You will learn to use android SQLite framework. Also you will see how the data can be saved in database asynchronously. After completing database we will learn how to use few of the most famous and efficient third party libraries in our application like image loading, database implementation while writing minimal code.

Learning Objectives - Facebook, DropBox & Google Drive are some of the essential applications which are present on almost all user devices, we will learn to integrate them in our application. We will be learning Single Sign on, uploading files to Google Drive. We will also learn to use various sensors available in Android devices like compass, Accelerometer etc.
Topics - Facebook Integration, Dropbox Integration, Google Drive Integration, Exploring Android Sensors.
10. End-to-End App Development & Publishing
Learning Objectives - In this final lesson, you will learn to use Android Studio much more efficiently; we will create one live application end to end to revise the concepts we learnt earlier. We will be signing the application using our newly generated keystore and then you will learn how to submit an application to Google Play to share with the world.
Topics - End to End App Development, Using Proguard to obfuscate applications, Generating, Signing Keys, Publish the application on Google Play Store (Live Demo), Doubts & Queries.
