The world we live in today is one that revolves around technology. Whether you are checking your email or paying a bill, most of these actions can be accomplished through the use of technology. One of the most powerful pieces of technology is a cell phone, which can accomplish most tasks any other device can do. Since this piece of technology is growing better and better each day I decided to learn how to program android devices. Cell phones are becoming more widely used by the general public, which I think means that in the near future that cell phones will dominate most of the technology used by the average person. One of the uses that a cell phone provides is a means of entertainment, which is why I decided to program a game. The game I programmed was a free runner game, in which the user tries to get the furthest distance possible while avoiding the sprite that is trying to collide with them. The game is programmed in Java and XML and was written using Android Studio.
