I will narrate exactly what I am doing and highlight the important information along the way. Members of the class may also publish their apps to the Android market (Google Play) and mobile websites free of charge.

You can also skip around and only view the lectures that describe features you plan to use in your app. If there is a lecture that describes an app feature that you have no interest in using, simply skip that lecture. You can always come back to that lecture should you decide you want to learn about that app feature for a different app.
