From Classroom to Marketplace

Computer Science senior, Alex Schmid, decided to put his newly learned Android programming skills to a real test.  As he was completing Comp 494 Programming for the Droid, taught by USF Computer Science alumnus, TJ Eakle, he took his final project, put his own twist on it and then made it available on the Android Marketplace.

After publishing his new app, Ocarina of Time - Song Helper, based upon the music in the game Legends of Zelda, he had over 100 downloads and had covered 50 countries.  His app has a early rating of 4.5 stars.     When downloaded the app is named SongHelper

 If you wish to check out his app, here's the link: 

Congratulations, Alex, on showing how to take your skills from the classroom to the world!
