Android Studio Development Environment 1.1 Download necessary packages using SDK Manager (Tools-Android-SDK Manager), making sure at least the following items are included (check “Show Package Details” to see detailed package items) 1.1a. SDK Platforms: Android 8.0 (Android SDK Platform 26, Google API Intel x86 Atom System Image) 1.1b. SDK Tools:  Recommended to install all packages (with the latest version for each package) 1.1c Note that when you open projects from other sources (sample projects, projects from the textbook etc), you may be prompted to install additional dependent packages and tools. 1.2 Install Intel HAXM if your CPU supports it. (Note that if your machine is not based on HAXM supporting Intel CPU, you may not be able to run Emulator). an Android Virtual Device (AVD name recommended) with the following configuration, using AVD Manager (Tools-Android-AVD Manager) ( ) – Device Profile: Phone/Nexus 5 – System Image Android Intel x86 with Google API  – API Level 26 – Other default settings your development environment by importing some Android code sample (e.g. BorderlessButton) (you may need to install additional packages) or open some project downloaded from the textbook. Make sure you can run/debug the project on the AVD created. Experiment with this play project and see if it behaves as expected on the AVD. your first Android App. 4.0 Start a new Android Studio project by adding an blank activity template (which should display a “hello world” message on the screen), with the following settings ( ). This is to ensure your submitted package name is unique. Assignment: Week1App Android Studio Project Settings: – Application Name: Week1App for example, Week1AppCL3456 – Company Domain: – Automated populated Package Name: edu.phoenix.mbl402.< - Leave "Include C++ Support" option unchecked. - Project Location: Choose a local directory to hold project files. - Target Android Device: Phone and Tablet/Minimum SDK = API 17  (default) - Activity Template: Empty Activity - Accept default names for Activity (MainActivity) and Layout (activity_main). Accept backward compatibility support (AppCompat) After the auto gradle build is complete, click Run-RunApp and make sure the "Hello World" message appears on the Emulator's screen. 4.1 Now modify the project to meet the following requirements: a. Change the display text to:  "Hello Android, my name is .” (1.5 pts) b. Change the text color to green. (1.5 pts) c. Implement an “add message” menu item. When selected, some new message will be shown below the exiting texts on the screen. (2 pts) Once you have developed and tested the application on the AVD, gather the following THREE (3) items for review/grading. 5.1a File Name/format: Report.doc/Microsoft Word 5.1b File Content: includes the following sections ( refer to AppReportSample file for detail): – At a glance summary on the implementation status of each requested feature and honest self-assessment of points to be earned. – For each feature, include all relevant app screenshots with narratives to prove the app works as expected. One should be able to look at this report to determine how well you implemented the requested feature (and the points/grade earned). – Reference and credits to source that was used for the app. (typically generated under the app-build-outputs-apk directory of the project workspace, if build is successfully). Additional note about the .apk file: To verify you can install and run the apk file onto the emulator, do the following: – Run the emulator (if not already running) – Un-install the app from the emulator (if it’s installed during development and/or testing) – Drag and drop the apk file onto the emulator’s window. Alternatively, in command prompt, go to /platform-tools, run “adb install ” (you may want to set the PATH env variable so that you can run adb command from any location). –  If successful, you should be able to locate the newly installed app on the emulator and start it. – if you can run the app in Android Studio but the app would crash when installed from apk file, try build the apk file via build->build apk menu and try again. : (Build->Clean) the project. Make a copy of the project’s directory (see ProjectSourceTreeStructure material). Delete the following two directories from the copy: -build and -app-build. Then zip the project’s directory into a file. This is to ensure your file has minimum size (usually it should be less than 1MBs). Make sure that when the is unzipped, you should be able to open it in Android Studio. . In another word, you will receive point if your app doesn’t build. But you will receive partial credit for successfully implementing some of the requested features. So plan your time accordingly. 6.0 Make sure your apk file comes from the source and the project test reports comes from the apk file. If these items are found to mis-match, incidents of “academic dishonesty” may be reported to the University. 6.1 Make sure you include all three files. 6.2 Make sure you can manually install and run the apk on the specified AVD. 6.3 Make sure file is no more than 1MB. If your source zip is over-size due to large image files, use smaller ones. Large files make it very difficult, if not impossible, for me to download your assignments in a batch fashion.
