Create the Storyboard for Your Application

In this module you will design your personalized app from a user's perspective. We will show you elements you can combine in your design, and how to document it to get feedback from prospective users or to organize your thoughts. If you get stuck on the quiz or peer-reviewed assignment, you should post on the Discussion Forum to ask for help. And if you finish early, we hope you'll go there to help your fellow classmates as well. To get started, please jump into the first lesson below!

Next it walks you through the steps of using them to create a basic "Hello World" application and it describes how to transfer the application for execution on a physical Android device and on an emulator. At the end of the module you will be familiar with Android tools.
