Android Development for Beginners 5

Android Development for Beginners 5In this tutorial I thought it would be fun to make 2 apps. I make an app that grabs weather map data dynamically and displays it. I also make an app that shows how to use the camera, image picker and TinyDB with App Inventor.

I got the maps from the Weather Underground and All together I show how to display images from the internet, take pictures, retrieve images from the gallery, store pictures in TinyDB, resize your app to fit any device and more. The blocks used can be found under the video below.

    Absolutely love this series. Can you do a tutorial on adding an Adsense banner to an app?

    Derek, you’re tutorials are the best! I’m late to programming and my interest and desires are way beyond my abilities at the moment, but I’ll keep working. I’m wondering have you put together an Android TTS demo? I’m interested in building an App that will address the person by name and then broadcast an event or short message. Something like, “Hi Derek, here’s a Pirmanti Brothers coupon.” Not that Pirmanti Brothers has coupon’s but wouldn’t it be great if the did?

    All the best and keep up the good work!
