Become a Professional App Developer Bundle
Jump start your career in app development

If you've ever wanted to actually build the mobile app ideas floating around in your head but didn't know where to start, this is the course for you. This course is meant to get you started developing mobile apps even if you've never written a line of code.

You'll start by building fully functional apps without writing code. You'll then move to fully learn both Android and iOS development along with the Java and Swift programming languages.

Going beyond just app development, you'll also learn mobile UI/UX design and how to mock up your app ideas using Sketch 3.

Finally you'll learn how to leverage the power of PhoneGap, which lets you write your app once and convert it to other platforms for publishing.

Getting Started with App Development

You'll start by learning app development without writing code at all using Android App Inventor. Here you'll learn basic programming terminology and concepts by building functioning mobile apps that you can actually publish to the market.

By removing the coding aspect from app development, you'll be able to truly understand what you're doing before diving into the more complex world of writing code.

This is what sets our course apart from all the others you'll see on Udemy.

Android App Development

First you'll learn the basics of Java, which is essential for Android Development. Then you'll be ready to learn Android app development,

Apple (iOS) App Development

Start by learning the new Swift programming language. Swift is the language iOS developers will be using to develop apps moving forward.

App Design and UI/UX Design

Apps that don't look great or don't function well for the user will be deleted faster than they were downloaded. In the following sections you'll learn everything you need to know about user interface design and user experience design so you can develop apps that people will actually want to use.

You'll also learn how to mock up your app designs using the popular Sketch 3 mobile mockup software.

PhoneGap

PhoneGap is a technology that allows you to write your app using one programming language and SDK, then convert it to other platforms for publishing. So if you prefer to make your app using Java and the Android SDK, you'll be able to publish your apps to the Apple App Store and the Windows App Store without having to write new apps for each platform. Neat!

Mobile UI and UX Design
Make well designed apps people will actually use

Mobile devices are now used for everything from banking to gaming – so user interface (UI) and user experience (UX) design has never been more important. If a website is difficult to navigate or the layout of an app is confusing, users will be gone in seconds. An in-depth understanding of mobile UI/UX design is critical for good mobile usability, for keeping your users engaged, and for ensuring your product stays relevant.

Make your Mobile UI Design Pop

  • Understand the basics of UI/UX mobile application design
  • Learn each step of the design process from planning to project completion
  • Gain an insight into current mobile UI/UX design trends and developments
  • Develop key skills to plan, manage and develop mobile usability

Understand the Mobile UX Design Process

While UI and UX design are often bundled together as one, they are in fact two separate disciplines. UI design is centered on layout and the fine detail of how the user interacts with the product (i.e a slide vs. a simple tap on an app). UX design however is about the overall experience, the look and feel of the product, and how the user navigates through it from start to finish. Despite their differences the two go hand-in-hand, and an understanding of both is essential for seamless mobile usability. In short, mobile UI/UX design is one of the most important elements of any digital project.
