Fast Forward

In this chapter, we covered a couple of basic ways to store local data on the Android platform. That should be enough to get you started, but for structured data such as phone lists and recipes, you'll need something more advanced. See Chapter 9, Putting SQL to Work, on page 178 for directions on how to use Android's built-in SQLite database and how to share information between applications using content providers. For instructions on installing applications on external storage, see Section 13.6, Installing on the SD Card, on page 268

This brings us to the end of Part II. With the help of the Sudoku example, you've learned all the basics of Android programming, including user interfaces, 2D graphics, audio, video, and simple data storage.

Now it's time to leave Sudoku behind and move beyond the basics.
