Do you need to use Java for work or your own personal reasons and you aren't feeling very confident in it? The Java Tutorial app is a beginner's course that can be used on your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone to take you through all the basics of Java. The app features more than 14 hours of educational videos and more than 70 lectures. Thanks to the vast amount of information the app currently stands at over one million downloads. By the time you finish with all the information you’re sure to feel confident.
A Full-Featured Tutorial
This tutorial is complete from start to finish, giving you all the basics and a whole lot more when it comes to Java. The instructor in the app is John Purcell who acts as your own personal tutor. Why spend hundreds of dollars on a course when instead you could use this app and have it work with your schedule? Learn at your own pace and when you have time. Of course let’s not forget that you get to learn from the comfort of your own home.
Even if you just have a passing interest in Java programming, the app can prove to be informative and interesting. You certainly don't have to go through all of the content if you don't want or need to. Just take what you want from it.
Using the Tutorial
The app has a few noteworthy features that should be pointed out such as the fact you can watch the courses offline. Just download and save them so you can view them again at your convenience. If you are pressed for time there is a way to learn even faster and that's by watching the videos in a faster speed. The idea here is that you can learn even more in a fraction of the time. I like that the app really works around your own busy life and schedule to ensure that even if you’re short on time you can still learn.
The app enjoys some rather high user ratings as it seems to do a great job at delivering the information people want and in the way that makes it easy to understand. One user comments that this acts as a handy study companion if you happen to be studying Java programming in school. I am in complete agreement with the users on this one. The app is well laid-out and the user interface is sleek and not filled with useless features and functions.
