This course introduces the new features offered to developers and consumers in Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Author Joseph Lowery first explains how you can expect the update to roll out to devices, and then shows how to install the Android SDK on Windows and Mac, select a device emulator, create a sample app, and prep it for publication on Google Play. Along the way, the course explores the smoother interface (codenamed Project Butter), notifications, advanced text manipulation, and security improvements that will be of interest to Android developers, and describes how those features translate for consumers on the device side.
(music playing) Hi! I'm Joseph Lowery, here to welcome you to Android 4.1 SDK Jelly Bean New Features. We'll open with a general overview of what's fresh and hot in Android 4.1, and then I'll show you how to set up the SDK in both Windows and Mac. Next, we'll dive deep into what the developer can find and take advantage of in Jelly Bean, including a smoother UI, enhanced notifications, and beefed-up media capabilities.
Then we'll go hands-on as I show you how to build your first app and test it in both a Jelly Bean enabled device. as well as an emulator. I'll also cover how to publish your Android apps and get into the Android marketplace, Google play. We'll close out the course with a closer look at Jelly Bean from the user's point of view with coverage of the enhanced search options, including voice search, Google services, and the joy of tapping and sharing via Android beam. Ready to grab a handful from the big Google jar and see what you got? Me too.
