What do the lessons cover?

In Android Phone Calls, students learn how to use the telephony features in Android. In the practical, they create an app that launches the Phone app with a phone number to make a call, and another app that checks for needed permissions and services, and then lets the user make a phone call from within the app.

In Android SMS Messages, students learn how to use the SMS features in Android. In the practical, they create an app that launches an SMS messaging app with a message, and another app that checks for needed permissions, sends an SMS message, and receives SMS messages.
