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. Next you'll learn basic iOS app development using Xcode before moving on to intermediate and advanced topics that will allow you to publish apps to the app store, add in-app purchasing and much more.
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 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!
Everybody has a great idea for an app. The problem is, not many of those people have the skills or knowledge required to make that idea a reality. Building an app, regardless of its simplicity or platform, requires certain technical know-how like coding, UX/UI design, and more. App Inventor 2, however, cuts through all of the smoke and allows anyone – even those with no coding experience – to build Android apps from the ground up. This course will teach you how.
Build Apps Without Learning Code!
Android Apps in an Instant
This course will teach you everything you need to know about building apps – without the complicated coding normally required. If you have a good internet connection, a basic understanding of what an Android app is, and a great idea for an app that doesn't yet exist, then you're the perfect candidate! While the course is aimed at beginner programmers or those with no coding experience whatsoever, experienced app builders who want to learn from a new angle will benefit too.
During the 204 lectures and 17 hours of content contained within this course, you'll learn the basics of programming in a fun and practical way, while creating fully fledged, ready-to-use Android apps. You'll start off with setting up App Inventor 2 and choosing the options you'll need for your future apps. Then you'll get to know the interface and tools before diving straight in and creating not one, not two, but TEN apps. These apps will increase in complexity as you work through them, using features such as the component editor and blocks editor.
When you've built your ten apps you'll also learn how to test, update, and publish them to the Play Store. By the end of this course, you'll be an advanced app builder using App Inventor 2.
App Inventor 2 is an open source web application originally developed by Google and now maintained by MIT. It is aimed at beginner programmers and specially designed to enable them to build Android apps. It turns complicated coding language into visual drag and drop blocks, so there is no need for the user to learn code before building their apps.
When it comes to the world of technology, staying ahead of the curve is always a challenge. In the last year one aspect of this – the world wide web – has kicked up a gear with the introduction of HTML5, the newest version of the code that makes the web tick. If you learn HTML5 along with CSS3 (the next level of web design used on all modern websites), you'll have a recipe for success; and this course will show you how.
Create a website from scratch with HMTL5 and CSS3
Build Like a Pro with HMTL5 and CSS3 Design
The only way to effectively learn HTML5 and CSS3 is by diving right in and building websites from the ground up. That's exactly what this course does. Designed for complete beginners, you'll create a complete website section by section during 35 lectures and 5 hours of content.
You'll start by becoming familiar with HTML tags and how they're used, followed by the use of attributes and common settings. Once you've got a handle on basic HTML, you'll move on to the fun stuff: CSS. You'll use CSS for fonts, colours, lists, navigation menus, and more, adding a new element to your website with each section. Links, layouts, tables, forms and videos are all covered too.
If you know how to use a web browser and a text editor, you're all set up for this course already. No extra software or tools are needed, and you can choose your preferred option of each to get going. By the time you finish, you'll know everything you need to know to create beautiful, functional, easy to use websites of any kind.
About HTML5 and CSS3
HTML or Hyper Text Mark-up Language is the language used for presenting websites and web content. HTML5 is the latest version, made official by the World Wide Web Consortium in 2014. Having a good grasp of HTML means you'll be able to create, present and edit a whole variety of content on the web.
CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) essentially 'enhances' HTML, giving developers and users more control over how pages and content is displayed. It is responsible for creating more visually engaging web pages, applications and interfaces. CSS3 is the latest version, and has many more extended features than previous versions – although it is backwards compatible.

Although only officially released in 2012, AngularJS has taken the world by storm thanks to official support from Google, a community of developers constantly improving it, and some of the internet's biggest websites making use of it. One of its best features is its data binding; dynamic views are automatically updated whenever a model changes, and vice versa. Furthermore, it combines the benefits of deep linking with desktop app-like behaviors, allows you to invent new HTML syntax and is designed to be testable. The result is simplified development and testing of applications and, ultimately, faultless single page and hybrid applications.
This course will allow you to grasp the basic concepts of AngularJS and its main features. You'll be provided with functional examples throughout to compound your learning, giving you the opportunity to put it to practical use.
After an overview of environment setup and MVC architecture, you'll get to grips with the more complex attributes of AngularJS, including modules and dependency injection, controllers, expressions, directives, scopes, filter, routing, and two-way data binding.
From Section 4 onwards, you'll build up a framework for your own dynamic app using bootstrap layouts, filters, list routing and setting parameters. You'll learn how to add useful functions like adding, updating and deleting elements, form validation and more. You'll even tackle debugging with Chrome console and add custom directives to make your HTML as readable as it can be.
By the end of the course, you will be confident enough to begin your own AngularJS projects, using the framework for creating web and hybrid applications of your own. You will have solidified your understanding of the AngularJS language and will be more than capable of putting to real world use with immediate effect.

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 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.
