This week’s lab explores the use of lists, arrays, and launching a web browser from a list item. The app is a tourist app that provides details about various sites in Chicago.
In this week’s Android lab, the developer is introduced to arrays in Java as well as using radio buttons in a group. The app is a photo prints app that calculates the cost of a user-specified number of prints.
In this lab, I build upon the previous labs and incorporate additional options for the controls, use radio buttons, and use Java and if-else statements to control logic in this weight conversion application. Changing the application icon is also discussed. Our apps continue to progress and build upon previous lessons. We can begin to see more sophistication and capabilities as new features and tools are introduced through these labs. The full set of labs can be found on my Android Boot Camp page on my website.
