This 4 week MOOC builds upon the overview of Java and Android covered in Course 1 by delving deeper into core Android app components, such as intents, activities, and broadcast receivers. You will learn by example how to program these core Android components together with Android concurrency frameworks and basic Java file I/O classes (such as File and InputStream) and Android storage mechanisms (such as Shared Preferences). You'll also learn how to use the Git source code management system. Throughout this MOOC you'll work incrementally on a project involving downloading, storing, and display images from remote websites. Each week you will add additional capabilities to the project, based on material covered in the lecture videos. You'll spend roughly 4 hours per week watching video lectures, taking quizzes, and programming assignments with Java and Android.

TOP REVIEWS FROM ANDROID APP COMPONENTS - INTENTS, ACTIVITIES, AND BROADCAST RECEIVERS
Very good examples, I recomend taking the optional homework if you can. I couldn't take every but you can learn a lot from this course.
The course is interesting but the length of video is too long . Overall it's still excellent!
It is a very good course and it is explained in a good way but the course concentrates on the theoretical part more than the practical part but overall it is a very good course.
I learnt a lot about intents and activities from the course. It's great to have an idea of the theory behind intents and activities.
