  1. I am onto my internship here in nepal and my tutor said to learn this from you. Loved the way you are doing it real time. Thank you.

  2. Awesome! 🙂 Your tutorial is much more interesting than others, becouse you let us watch writing your app on real time with you, so we are thinking more, and learn more efficiently. Moreover it's complete app, you're not showing us something like "Look that's a textView, on the next tutorial I will show u button", that's very cool. Greetings from Poland 🙂

  3. Hello Harrison; What a great video thanks for sharing, I have the following question: I have an application in which the first activity are all of which want to launch a new activity which is a recyclerview, and that selecting one of the buttons show me the above information, ie button 1 show only information I 1 and so on with the buttons, the idea is that everything comes from the same list. I send you the link of the project: https://github.com/Mario1708/MyProyect
    puesdes grateful if I help. Thank you

  4. Hello! It's great how you try to explain everything you are doing!
    Keep it up!
    I have a few things to point out:
    In the android guidelines we are told to use sp instead of dp for text sizes.
    Also setting the visibility of views in your layout, there's an attribute to set the visibility, its android:visibility and it can have visible, invisible and gone.
    visible just shows it as normal, invisible set's the view to be invisible, but it still takes up the space and gone set's the view to disappear completely. These values can also be changed programmatically quite easily.
    After you have assigned your TextView variable to your TextView in the XML layout with findViewById(int resId), for example:
    TextView titleText = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.title);
    Then you can change it's visibility to whatever you want:
    titleText.sent visibility(View.GONE);

    I hope this helped somehow 🙂
