In This Chapter
Building Android applications is fun, but building truly in-depth applications is exciting because you dive into the real guts of the Android platform. In this chapter, I introduce you to such an application — the Task Reminder application, which you build from beginning to end over the next couple of chapters.
In this chapter, you design the app and create the screens and basic processes. Over the course of the next few chapters, you develop these processes to create your app.
This app requires a lot of interaction with the user and with the Android system, and by developing it, you are introduced to a number of facets of Android development that can help you in your career. I wish I would have known some of these things when I started — it would have saved me a lot of time!
