I was super impressed with this first course when I started it, but I became less satisfied when I progressed into it further. The quality of the production is amazing and the instructor seems quite good. It looks like serious effort was put into making this look top notch. It may be the nicest looking course I've ever taken on Coursera.

My criticism is that the course goes from really basic in Week One to very complicated by Week Three. The videos are accessible at first, but they very quickly get so technical that I had a really tough time following them. There are so many technical terms introduced in so little time that it's really hard to keep track of any of it. Since the quizzes mostly ask questions about the technical vocabulary introduced, they are very frustrating. I have some experience with other programming languages and IDEs and I found this extremely difficult to follow.

Overall, the course just overloads you with so much information so fast that you can't absorb it. It almost feels as if a technical manual is being read to you--everything is there but it's not presented in a way that feels meaningful. You can pass by simply retaking the quizzes until you get the answers right, but you won't feel like you really understand anything. I think they needed a fourth week and to just spread out the material a bit more. The first course in a specialization like this needs to be more accessible. There are also a few errors in the quizzes that need to be corrected.

This is a pretty chaotic intro for a "beginner" course. The final video player app you build doesn't work if you use the step by step instructions. Even directly copying and pasting their "solution" code is filled with multiple errors in Android Studio. A beginner is not able to troubleshoot coding errors, and the discussion forums are filled with other learners trying to help each other, to no avail. The overall presentation along the way felt pretty random, often with isolated facts being thrown out with no context and then moving on. I would expect more of a logical structure from a course claiming no prior knowledge required.

The course was nicely choreographed and beautifully taught. It proviedes the new learners with clear and good understanding of Android Mobile Appliction Development.

Course is decent. It covers various background information on Android application programming(ie. files, OS images, Android Studio walkthrough). It ends with a simple app, which I don't believe is beginner friendly.

Instead of building a straightforward TextView/Button app, the course creates a VideoView app(which I loved being exposed to, but again, the app is a jump from what was covered.) A Udemy course will get your more mileage until you return to fill in the basics with this certificate course.

Video and sound production are amazing quality and the instructor/transcripts are clear.

This is great course at introduction level. I really enjoyed it. The only problem is that the Media Player designed in this course is outdated and new Android Studio has different layout and language structure.

I've done many courses offered by Meta, but unfortunately, this is the worst one so far. The lack of practice exercises and the tendency to go over code without any explanation doesn't make any sense. It was a really bad experience.

The Course is not quite attractive as that of Google Courses. Google Courses are easy to understand and keeping attractive to learn.

The course sets the foundations for mobile development, allowing you to develop your own ideas or help others to do the same. In addition, the course gives a taste of how to use the tools for developing mobile applications, specifically Android applications. A proper time is required for this course, because it is a heavy introduction to mobile development, with a set of modern skills such as Kotlin, Android API, XML, and Gradle. Considering this is a very detailed introduction to mobile development, I would strongly recommend taking this course.

Agradecido con Coursera y Meta por brindarme la oportunidad de participar en el curso de Introducción al Desarrollo de Aplicaciones Móviles. Me permitió adquirir conocimientos básicos en el desarrollo de aplicaciones y dar un primer vistazo en esta área de la programación. Estoy agradecido por la flexibilidad que Coursera ofrece al permitirme aprender a mi propio ritmo y acceder a material educativo de alta calidad. Sin duda, esta experiencia ha sido enriquecedora <3

This course was really very useful, it gave me the much needed foundation for android developement.

I started this course to get introduced to the subject and get an understanding that whether I can pursue it further or not, but the way taught , I am sure, I am going for the further follow up courses.

The course was rich, easy to understand and interactive.

The only thing I noted is that the version of Android Studio used in the course seems a bit dated from what is being used in April 2023, which is the period I am taking this course.

Apart from that, great course, great facilitator.

Thank you.

Course is good, it feels like a good way to introduce android development, while not being vague and basic.

It is true that some things were not taught , but that is fine, because this course is just the introduction, I expect to learn more about the coding part in the respective Kotlin course.

Excellent presentation of Ideas in a well-organized manner. Most tutorials fail to teach the important things first such as project planning, layouts, XML, emulators etcetera. But in this course, there's no pre-emption of the learner's previous knowledge.

I loved this course. I currently work in Android, and it solidified a lot of things for me. I feel like I understand and can explain Android concepts on a deeper level. Very grateful for this course and I will be completing the other certifications.

The inclass question checks plus the widespread reading material is enough to self-evaluate and research through the course while at the same time learning from a good instructor. This is indeed a good introduction to android development
