Book Description Prentice Hall, 2011. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "I really love what you''re doing with the book. It has the potential to become the best Android book on themarket. It''s impressive to see so many well-explained useful examples of Android patterns. The coverage of recent Honeycomb-specific APIs such as ViewPropertyAnimator and resizeable AppWidgets makes this work especially current." Dan Galpin, Android Advocate and author of Intro to Android Application Development "I really like that this is aiming to stay up-to-date with Android 3 and be the most current book possible by covering key Android 3 features such as property animation, fragments, the ActionBar, tabbed navigation and more. I haven''t seen any other books cover app publishing so well and the links provided throughout are an impressive collection that I think would be valuable to anyone getting started. You get full applications that show multiple parts of the APIs working together. I wish this book had been around when I started developing on Android." Douglas Jones, Senior Software Engineer, Fullpower Technologies "This is the book for developers interested in starting Android application development. While the target of Android for Programmers is people with some development experience, even novices will find this book an interesting read and it will speed their immersion into Android development. The book starts by describing the Android development environment. Then each chapter introduces a core aspect of the Android platform by briefly explaining the topic, then illustrating the capability with working code. The sample apps demonstrate the topics of each chapter, which easily can be applied to your own projects. By far, this is the quickest way to get comfortable writing applications for the #1 smartphone operating system. I really enjoy the book." Eric J. Bowden, COO, Safe Driving Systems, LLC "Takes the ideal approach of teaching you the Android SDK through actual use. Rather than regurgitate the API documentation, this book shows you how to write an app in every chapter, explaining each aspect of the SDK as it''s encountered. Some apps are built from scratch; others expand on the apps in previous chapters, iterating on the code to implement new functionality. The full source code is available, so you can see how the SDK is really used. Teaches you all the Android essentials from layouts to sensors and even on to features added in Honeycomb such as property animation, tabbed navigation with the ActionBar, fragments and web services with JsonReader. Whether you''ve never touched Android or you have some apps under your belt already, this book is definitely worth picking up." Ian G. Clifton, Independent Contractor and Android App Developer "With the increasing scope of Android, getting up to speed can be a challenge. This book addresses a compelling set of topics, presenting them in self-contained packages that are fun and instructive. The coverage of key Android 3 features such as fragments, resizable App Widgets and the Action Bar is interesting. For tablet-oriented app development, familiarity with these tools is essential. Creates UI/layouts with a depth of detail I''ve not seen elsewhere." Sebastian Nykopp, Chief Architect, Reaktor "The Welcome app looks solid; great to see the integration of the new layout editor. The Tip Calculator app is a pretty cool example and definitely a useful app; I love the deeper coverage of the lifecycle. The Favorite Twitter Searches app is a good way to demonstrate ScrollView. The Flag Quiz app is one of my favorites, covering delayed events, View animations and string arrays; I like the use of the AssetManager for the flags. The XML declaration and explanation of the tweened flag-shake animation is nicely done. The SpotOn Game app is one of my favorites; it does an excellent job in covering the new Honeycomb+ property animations, and uses them in a creative way to build a surprisingly fun little.
