Android Programming Tutorials gives you hands-on instruction in how to build sophisticated Android applications, through a series of 42 individual exercises. These exercises lead you through the basics of creating Android applications, all the way through many fun Android features like Internet access, location tracking, maps, integrated WebKit browsers, cameras, accelerometers, and much more. Full source code to all the exercise answers is available from the CommonsWare Web site, to help you if you get stuck. Android Programming Tutorials makes an excellent companion volume to more traditional Android books that merely tell you what is possible.

From the Publisher:

We are pleased to add Android Programming Tutorials to our line of books on Android application development. Different people learn different ways, so it is important to have a range of options for people to pick up Android programming. This book is geared for people who like working through code, but want guidance along the way.

The book has been battle-tested, used in the author's live Android training events, with the exercises put through their paces by dozens of students.

If you prefer more traditional programming guides, check out Beginning Android (also known as The Busy Coder's Guide to Android Development, published in partnership with Apress) and The Busy Coder's Guide to Advanced Android Development.

From the Back Cover:

Welcome!

Android devices are being adopted rapidly, and Android allows you to craft applications that can be deployed onto these devices, even sold through the Android Market.

Creating such applications is not always easy, however. That is the reason for this book.

Along with its companion volumes from CommonsWare, you get a broad and deep picture of how to create interesting and useful applications for Android. This book in particular leads you through a set of exercises, slowly building up a pair of major applications, to see various Android development techniques in context and in use. For those of you who "learn by doing", this book is your way to pick up Android application development.This book's digital counterpart will be updated periodically; the print copy will also be updated, though less frequently. The digital edition is available via the Warescription, whereby you can get the entire line of CommonsWare books and updates for a year for one low fee.And, if you have any questions about the book or the exercises, join the cw-android Google Group, and we will be happy to help!
