Présentation de l'éditeur
The start-to-finish guide to Android application development: massively updated for the newest SDKs and developer techniques!
This book delivers all the up-to-date information, tested code, and best practices you need to create and market successful mobile apps with the latest versions of Android. Drawing on their extensive experience with mobile and wireless development, Lauren Darcey and Shane Conder cover every step: concept, design, coding, testing, packaging, and delivery. The authors introduce the Android platform, explain the principles of effective Android application design, and present today’s best practices for crafting effective user interfaces. Next, they offer detailed coverage of each key Android API, including data storage, networking, telephony, location-based services, multimedia, 3D graphics, and hardware.
Every chapter of this edition has been updated for the newest Android SDKs, tools, utilities, and hardware. All sample code has been overhauled and tested on leading devices from multiple companies, including HTC, Motorola, and ARCHOS. Many new examples have been added, including complete new applications. This new edition also adds
- Nine new chapters covering web APIs, the Android NDK, extending application reach, managing users, data synchronization, backups, advanced user input, and more
- Greatly expanded coverage of Android manifest files, content providers, app design, and testing
- New coverage of hot topics like Bluetooth, gestures, voice recognition, App Widgets, live folders, live wallpapers, and global search
- Updated 3D graphics programming coverage reflecting OpenGL ES 2.0
- An all-new chapter on tackling cross-device compatibility issues, from designing for the smallest phones to the big new tablets hitting the market
- Even more tips and tricks to help you design, develop, and test applications for different devices
- A new appendix full of Eclipse tips and tricks
This book is an indispensable resource for every member of the Android development team: software developers with all levels of mobile experience, team leaders and project managers, testers and QA specialists, software architects, and even marketers.

Easy to follow, samples all work.
It covers many topics from basic to semi advanced.
Although Amazon's description mentions the CD-ROM, there is none.
(2) I really expected more coverage of the XML portion of an Android App (mostly XML sets up the layout, but many embed some code and event handlers there, or so it appears to me).
I need to sit down with this for a week. If I feel better about the book, I'll raise the number of stars. I'll still be ticked off at the CD-ROM misadvertising.
I found this book at a Barnes and Noble bookstore, and it has the CD-ROM. I guess you pay something for Amazon's discounted price.
I required my students to read about 2/3 of the book, and I required them to complete online quizzes that I developed for each chapter. At the end of the course, I had them complete a survey about the book, and here's the results:
1) The book was very helpful in learning how to program Android apps.
a. 0% Strongly Disagree
b. 12% Somewhat Disagree
c. 6% Neutral
d. 59% Somewhat Agree
e. 24% Strongly Agree
2) I referred to the book often when developing my project.
a. 6% Strongly Disagree
b. 18% Somewhat Disagree
c. 29% Neutral
d. 35% Somewhat Agree
e. 12% Strongly Agree
3) I would recommend this book to others who want to learn how to program Android apps.
a. 0% Strongly Disagree
b. 12% Somewhat Disagree
c. 24% Neutral
d. 24% Somewhat Agree
e. 41% Strongly Agree
To summarize, 83% thought the book was helpful in learning how to program Android apps, and 65% of the class is likely to recommend this book to others. That's not bad considering how critical most college students are of their text books.
Of course my students also received instruction from me, so it's difficult to know what their opinion of the book would be if it was the sole source of info on Android programming available to them. For me as an instructor, the book was quite helpful in learning new bits of Android that I was previously unfamiliar with.
