I very much enjoyed this course. It gave a great introduction to Android programming for those who don't know any android programming to start with. I recommend this course as a place to start.

I found this course to be extremely confusing for a beginner in the field. There was no guidance, and peer help was confusing.

I am disappointed and suggest that if you enroll that you have a good working knowledge of basic java and android programming before attempting this course because you will be on your own.

This course is outdated and none of the features are available in the newer version of Android studio. Either update the Course or please remove this course. And also there is a lot of difficulty in understanding the English accent of these people.

The free version of the course is far more restricted than other courses I've taken, the content wasn't brilliant, and it wasn't really more advanced than other tutorials with far better presenters which can be found online for free

The version of software being used is outdated and the accent of the instructor is really hard to understand. This makes learning very frustrating. Since the version is outdated, following along is very difficult.

Out of date with no instructor support. Discussion forums are all posts asking for peer graders. Did not learn anything. Much better learning resources for android development provided for free by Google codelabs.

I will give up. The projects are based on a very old version of Android Studio (1.5), so many functions are no more available in the new version (4.1.1). I spent a lot of time to work on the compatibility....

I had a lot of errors - the submission of thoughts and first quiz did not work on my computer so after trying in both firefox and chrome I am giving up. Will try different course. The lessons were decent.

The course is very old and there are quite changes in android studio's newest version and the one being used in the course. Also, the style of teaching of the professor didn't suited me atleast.

It's an old course with the old android studio. I'm here trying to figure out how to use android studio lastest version. I wish they would have updated it. What a waste of time this class.

Far too little advice on how to do what they have been discussed in the course.Videos should be updated, the programs shown in them are old versions, and the instructions no longer work.

Very difficult to understand the accent of the instructors and the course does not teach the basics of android programming and directly uses techniques not known to the student
