Technology education startup Treehouse has today announced its first Android app, alongside a set of new courses for Apple’s Swift programming language.

Treehouse announced its iPad app just a year ago and moves onto Android to help students learn directly on their mobile phones while on the go. The Android app gives access to 1,000 course videos on the go, as well as quizzes, exercises and challenges to help students retain information.

The company also touts that the new Swift programming course is one of the first full video tutorials for the programming language, despite Apple only unveiling it at WWDC in June.

Apple made Swift available for all developers today with the public of iOS 8 and now accepts applications developed using the language to the store.
