Building my 2nd Android App

Lab 2: Simplify! The Android User Interface


In this 2nd lab, an application will be developed that includes a button action to move from the main screen to a 2nd screen. Widgets such as TextView, buttons, and ImageView will be used to build the application in conjunction with the strings.xml file and Translations Editor. To do this, a 2nd activity will be created that includes the editing of a new Java class file. To follow along with this lab, an image file is used that can be downloaded. The lab will be capped off by testing our new recipe app in the virtual emulator.

If you’re tuning in for the first time, you can start from the beginning on my Android Boot Camp page.
