- [Dan] It's called a smartphone but it may not leave you with a feeling that you're particularly smart. Android devices are advanced pieces of technology. They're tremendously capable, yet you may have the nagging feeling that you're not really using your phone or tablet to its full potential. In fact, you may even feel that you have a pretty good handle on the device, but you've only scratching the surface. I'm Dan Gookin, and I've written over 160 books on computers and technology, including the book DOS for Dummies, which spawned the entire For Dummies publishing phenomenon.
In this course, I show you the essentials of using an Android device. The important stuff as well as stuff you may not know about. Topics covered include basic operations and how to use standard features, but I also explore the full potential of your device. Lessons in this course cover important things that the device does, but here you'll find plenty of help, useful tips and tricks for maximizing your technology investment. My desire is to give you a strong foothold for discovering what an Android can do and how to exploit its features to make you a smarter smartphone and tablet user.
And along the way, I inject some humor and fun, plus a few surprises. So please, join me and together we'll explore mobile technology with Android Essential Training.
