Android Tutorials

__________________________________________________________________________________________________

Here at Glowing Pigs International, sharing knowledge is a big part of what we do. Because interest in mobile apps is high,  we have created some tutorials that cover specific areas of Android app programming that are not widely covered elsewhere.  The first video playlist below contains nine tutorials that cover the basic concepts for building an app that streams music in a background service. 

The second video playlist contains two tutorials that provide an overview of the Android activity life cycle and show where in that life cycle to store persistent data. Understanding the activity life cycle is crucial for creating Android apps that provide a good user experience. New tutorials will be added regularly, so check back here often.
