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.

This course is fairly easy to follow as it is more a hands-on workshop than a typical course. It provides a nice introduction to Android programming, however: it is way too outdated and sometimes it is a bit tricky to code the sample apps using the modern API.

On the other hand, if you're auditing the course, bear in mind you won't be able to get the last quiz graded (nor your application).

Not bad, but surely there will be better (or at least more up-to-date) options out there.

Good course, but it should really get an update. The recordings are done with Android studio 1.5 and this means year 2015. Sorry but i can not give more than 3 stars for that in a field that changes so fast. Although most of the things still work as described. If the course would be up to date including some of the more modern features it would be 4 stars.

To be frank I have a bad experience here. I expected a lot from this course but it is not upto the mark. Please update your Android Studio to 2020 version it is really very hard new learners to find old version and install. Suggest learners to choose Java language over Krotlein. Overall it is a bad course i is good for Beginners.

Thank You:)

There should not be an expiry date for a paid course. You are ripping off student money. I paid twice just to earn my certificate. At least send email reminders that the subscription will expire before locking the course.

However, this course was well structured and well taught by CentraleSupelec

The course is frankly quite outdated. I like the approach of peer graded assignment but I would also appreciate that the mentors too review the applications. As this is a project-oriented course I would highly recommend any novice to finish this course with full dedication.

The course is outdated as most of the code doesn't work in modern android studio. The interface of the app is also not same as shown in studio. The course provider should update the course as per the modern requirement.

I really do appreciate the course and its simply great step up for me as a beginner, but i really would like to point out that the accent was really a bit hard to break down for me. But the subtitles really helped out.

There are courses that offer better level of details and better course materials and presentation .. and also for free ..

However this course is a best-effort course and is helpful for beginners.

Very good for the very basic capabilities on Android for someone who has some basic knowledge of programming. However, the project is currently dated and should be updated.

Hard to understand the instructors, the Android Studio Version they were using to guided is not an up-to-date version, making it very difficult to follow, in my opinion

The course gives you a good head start for what is android and how are android apps built. Seems to be a bit less dynamic but overall it's a good course.

This could be improved by adding more interesting subjects :

- how to use list adapters with list view

- how to use menus

- how to use scrolling view

- etc
