Throughout this course, we'll be building a Mobile App which leverages both Starling and Feather in order to bring out a simple yet enjoyable User Interface. Let's have a look at the App in its final form to get an idea, of how this will all come together. So here's the Application running in a simulator on my Desktop. We're able to navigate the Application using this Tab bar on top and using this Sketch functionality, we can draw within this Canvas element. And even change aspects of the Drawing tools through Slider, when we're finished, we hit Save.
And the file is rendered to a ping to save to the Local File system and then brought up within the Browse View in order for us to see it, other previously saved files are also here for us to look at. Before you take this course you should be familiar with ActionScript or some similarly constructed language. In the concept of External Frameworks and libraries if you're not, check out the lynda.com website to learn all these topics. That's what we'll be building in this course, so let's get going.
