This course delves into the unique features of the Android platform and how those features affect the way apps are created. The focus is on using techniques that embrace the Android platform’s capabilities and make your app function as a natural extension of the platform. We look in detail at the role of Context and how it affects your application. We explore background processing with Services and responding to changes in device state with Broadcast Receivers. Finally we examine notifications and how to use them to effectively provide information to the user and how to launch Activities directly from a notification message.
