Introduction to Android
What is Android?
Android is an operating system for mobile phones, in much the same way that many PCs
run Microsoft Windows as their operating system. It is developed by Google and allows
you to use many of the programs you might have on your home computer, such as Skype,
Internet Browsers, document readers and editors, but in addition to that it provides access
to the applications speciﬁcally created for devices with the touch-screen interface.
With Android you literally have the world on your ﬁngertips.
What does Android look like?
Android's standard layout is to have a series of Home screens, which can contain
shortcuts to launch apps, or can contain widgets, which are small programs that serve a
single function, such as controlling your music or displaying Facebook updates.
