With the advent of mobile technology, more and more people are moving away from using traditional desktop devices and use their mobiles to get the required information they need. This shift has created a demand for information to be easily accessible on mobile devices and in turn has created a fast paced and rapidly growing mobile app industry. Educational demand and in this lesson we will cover all aspects of what a mobile app is, the market place and why mobile application design skills are in such high demand.

The Android SDK includes sample projects with source code, development tools, an emulator, and required libraries to build Android applications. You will learn how to set up the android SDK kit and set up sample projects and view them in the SDK emulator. We will also look at the source code and how the SDK architecture is structured.
Adobe PhoneGap is a an open source framework that allows you to create advanced mobile apps using standardised plugins across all mobile devices including Android, IOS & Windows. In this lesson you will learn to install and set up Adobe PhoneGap and how you can develop mobile apps across all the major platforms.

In this lesson you will learn to create and deploy an advanced app using PhoneGap Plugins. PhoneGap plugins allow you to extend the existing PhoneGap functionality to add your own custom features via exposing native code. We will learn what plugins are and how they can be used within PhoneGap using Google Maps API. Once the API is implemented we will then deploy our app.
When we have deployed our app we will be given an introduction into SQLite and learn how to set up a database within PhoneGap and learn how to store information on a mobile app device. A database is a collection of information that is organized so that it can easily be accessed, managed, and updated. We will look at the database structure and how it is linked internally to our mobile app and test storing data.
