    "Android Development For Absolute Beginners is a good resource for those of us that know how to program but are a bit daunted by the steps required to make an app for your phone. It really does walk you through all the basis, for example the first includes instructions in getting all of the programs installed that you will need. It really is for beginners so not everyone will want to see it, but I am sure glad I found it."

    "Being a small business owner I am always looking for ways to branch out and expand. I have my own website and I run my own social media, but with the increased use of apps on smartphones I needed to find a way to get my product onto smartphones through an app to expand my business. The only problem was I didn't know how to create an app or even where to begin. Mobile Apps Made Simple opened a whole new world for me and allowed me to take things step by step. I learned the basics of how apps work and why apps work and it was geared toward someone who owned a business like me. This allowed me to see app ideas for a business and then use what I learned to tailor that toward my own app. I highly recommend it for anyone starting out a business or for anyone who just wants to learn how to create their own app."

    "I've always been into programming, but I never ventured too far away from simple windows applications with Visual Basic. However, it's 2017 and I wanted to do whatever I could to learn about developing apps. These are my absolute favorite tutorials on developing apps. They make it very easy to understand, and show how you can incorporate the concepts through many different possible real life scenarios. The videos also kind of open your eyes and make you want to explore and understand additional concepts. I was hired by the company I work for to develop an app that helps customers order from the business I work for. I'd say that's pretty impressive for only a few months of working on it. It seemed a little bit over my head at first, but I'm cruising along nicely. All in all I'm very impressed with these videos."
