Android studio Java Trivial : Difference between implicit and explicit intents

In android studio you will often create codes that opens up other applications such as as a web browser, media player, downloader or camera. But the phone contains many different web browsers and media player. Thus the implicit and explicit intent comes in.

Implicit intent:

The implicit intent:

The implicit intent pulls up the new application without being specified which one to pull up.

intent intent = new Intent();


Explicit intent:

The explicit intent will pull up a specific application. One that you set yourself when you are writing the code.

Sometimes the person’s device will not have the application that is specified and thus an error occurs.

example android

Android Studio and Java Practice Recap : Login Screen

I learned how to create a login screen and how to log the data using android studio.

I took a screenshot to share what I’ve done so I won’t forget it 50 years from now. It’s quote amazing what technology can do!

Who knew it was possible to create your own mobile login screen!

But I’ve only cracked down 1% of learning how to create apps, so there is still a lot left to learn!

How can you make your own login screen?

A quick summary

  • Creating the 2 textview box for username and password on the xml or design page
  • Also create a button
  • Give your buttons and textview different names to declare for further Java usage
  • On your java file use the names that you declared and create an onclick function with the two EditText objects
  • Then create a log to see if the buttons are working properly on your demo app.

Why I decided to learn Android Apps when I spent so much time studying Life Science

The booming technological industry

Doesn’t it make you feel fidgety?

Being a consumer

Has given me tumors

To become a creator

To develop a better solution to solving people’s problems

Android is where I will blossom

Biology does not offer you the ability for innovation to spawn

Discovery and simple understanding makes me yawn

It’s time to change the world

to invent new technological applications!

Lenova Ideapad310

My Lenovo laptop won’t start up anymore. Well I can still turn it on but it shows me a blank screen with the cursor on it. I’ve been using it for storing videos and recording videos but then it just suddenly decided to crash one day and won’t turn on anymore.


Lenovo Lenovo Why do you fail me?

I would like to be free

The features on you were not so great

I had lots of difficulty multitasking while waiting

So I kept your usage to a minimum

My dell is faster then you

Why should I continue to use you

You are very buggy

Perhaps the GPU was muggy

when I was recording gameplay

I heard a neigh

Crash Crash error error

You failed me sir

AMD a12, what is that?

Is that suppose to be better then Intel core i5?

Since you crashed, I will say no it’s not.

Although your 16gb ram is higher then 8gb.

Your higher numbers doesn’t represent who you are

As you are slower then my dell.

I was a fool to have trusted you!

Motivation for studying : Adventure and gold


The study of life

They study of creations

That ability to manipulate things

We us adventurers must unit the nations

And look for gold with our wings

So don’t give up!

Do not worry about others negativity

Pull yourself together and keep your head up

You are not in captivity

So push yourself to overcome this challenge!

Hands up for Science

Science why do I study you

It takes years to be a professional in this field

yet the opportunities are limited

Five years of studying

Was it all for nothing?

But why live in the past

when you can begin a new chapter in the present

Now science is just a hobby

There is no money in it

It is all for educational charity

We study for fun

We teach for fun

We take exams for fun

We write hypothesis for fun

And research newer innovative thoughts

But we cannot live in a mansion for fun

That’s what we can’t do

Unless we win the lottery

50$ a month on lottery tickets

Let’s build a giant science hall

And educate others for free!

Hands up if you love science.

My writing procrastination

I spent 3 weeks trying to write a 200 word critical thinking paper on how bacteria compete with one another. But it’s getting nowhere.

Research Research Research

Write Write Write

Snooze Snooze Snooze

I think I’ve found an answer

That might give me cancer

But wait, let me stare at this article

For 3 more hours

Now I got sleeping powers

Perhaps I should start writing

Paenibacillus dendritiformis

Stares at the document for another hour.

What a fool I am

Perhaps I should just go with my gut

And become a spam robot

Antibiotics, Fratricide, Bacteriocins

An alternative to preserving food that is safe and efficient

without the use of chemicals

My topic is terrible

Waits another week.


My number one weakness. Solution: Go with you gut and just do it. Find out what your missing and rewrite. Don’t wait too long

Back to the basics : Cornell Notes

I forgot how to study,

My notes seemed really muddy

I scribbled many things on my paper

Yet remembered nothing

Now I went back to basics

And I’m doing cornell notes now

Now here is something you can chow on

Viruses , viruses that’s what I’m learning

Some contain an envelope and some are naked

But if you keep checking them out

The filoviridae will latch itself onto your eyes

Soon You’ll be eating bloody pies

Inside a body bag

So  wear a biohazard suite and stay away

And be keep swaying your life until the day ends.
