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
The course is a very good introductory course. The instructor explains the concepts in detail and with nice and clear examples.
The course is interesting but the length of video is too long . Overall it's still excellent!
I really appreciate this course, too good to understand the android framework fundamentals and how they work together.
The content seem rushed sometimes, but if you take time to work on the optional programming assignment you will understand completely the concepts presented in every week.
