What is the Final Project?
Android Project Worth 80% of final exam grade. Create an Android application of your choosing Find something that you’re excited about!!! Games, Cooking, Music, Computers, Zombies, etc.
Demonstrate basic understanding of Android UI and skills learned in class/homework. Final application needs to be tested and free of errors/crashes/etc. If you’re app crashes and prevents me from grading it, you’re grade will suffer accordingly. Android Project Requirements
