  1. Welcome back. We have good news and bad news.
  2. The bad news first is that this is the last
  3. lesson in the course. The good news though this is
  4. going to be the most awesome lesson in the course.
  5. >> So to recap what we've learned so far.
  6. >> In lesson one we talked about what
  7. is UX and the difference between UI and UX.
  8. >> In lesson two we talked the user centered
  9. design process and got into personas and use cases.
  10. >> In lesson three, we talked about the mobile
  11. user and talked about different mobile user constraints. Yeah and lesson four
  12. we are going to talk about not about constraints but about the capabilities
  13. that are unlocked by mobile and the amazing things that you can do
  14. on Android to blow your users minds and create amazing five star applications.
  15. >> So Nazmul, everybody wants to know.
  16. >> How do we get closer to making five star apps. That's a good
  17. question. First, we're going to understand the
  18. amazing capabilities that Android platform has to offer.
  19. Then, we're going to imagine how to use these capabilities
  20. to create some really kick ass features for your apps
  21. and through all this we're going to learn that context
  22. is what helps us deliver five star applications to our users.
  23. >> So, Nazmul what do you mean by context? So context
  24. is all about a user and what they're doing in a
  25. physical environment when they're interacting
  26. with your application. Now, before we
  27. get to the details of what context is made up of.
  28. You're probably a web and desktop developer, so
  29. let's talk about the difference between the Android
  30. platform and web and desktop. There's some fundamental
  31. similarities between web/desktop and mobile machines. I mean after
  32. all, they actually collect data from input sources
  33. they process that information and they produce output.
  34. So what are some of the inputs do
  35. you think that are similar between web/desk and Android?
  36. >> Well they both have keyboards and you can enter information that way.
  37. >> And they also
  38. both have pointing devices.
  39. >> And they both have a network connection. Yeah they're a
  40. lot of similarity of input sources but the power of Android
  41. truly lies in the input sources or sensors that are available
  42. in Android that are simply not available on web and desktop.
  43. >> Exactly. One simple example is GPS. So can you name all the other
  44. input sources that are available on Android
  45. that are not available on web and desktop?
