This is a good, concise "quick start" guide for people new to Android development. It helps you get a good overview of the basic structure of an Android app and how they're put together. This book isn't really an introduction to programming (you'd have a hard time following it if you had no background at all), and it certainly isn't an "everything you ever wanted to know about Android" type book (think "high level overview and building blocks"), but it provides enough information to help you transition to developing on the platform more quickly.My only gripe about this book is the formatting on the Kindle edition. I'm not sure how I would've done it differently truthfully but the poor formatting sometimes made it difficult to follow the code samples.
This is a phenomenal book. This book introduces what you need to know about view XML as you go along, diving right into the real meat and potatoes of Android programming. The author of this book understands that the reader doesn't just want to place elements on a screen, but connect those elements, perform view transitions, and access unique and novel aspects of the Android API--and he certainly doesn't disappoint in satisfying the reader's desire in that regard. I enjoyed reading it because an application is simultaneously completing as you are reading it through. I would definitely recommend this book to any of my friends, looking to develop Android Applications. For anyone that is not really interested in Android Application Development, than this is definitely not their book. Examples are working and clearly explained step by step. There are a lot of code snippets that are worth saving.
A good book to start with when learning android programming and app development. I'm an aspiring programmer. I only know the basic of programming in general, so far. Since android app development is the trend these days, I decided to jump to it and this book is one of the books I purchased to learn the subject. Fortunately it's a decent one, discussing each topic extensively and in a less complicated fashion. Since I'm a beginner, there are some topics I couldn't understand in one reading but after going through it a few times, it gets easier to comprehend. All in all, it was an awesome guide and would definitely recommend it to beginners like me.
App programming seems to be the latest craze nowadays. If you don’t know anything about the topic, you are deemed to belong to the ice age. This book, though a little bit too technical for my taste, was very detailed and consistent in its tutorial approach. All one has to do is follow the instructions. For a newbie like me though, I want to know why it came to that point in the process, but perhaps telling me about the origins of the protocol might make this book too long. Nevertheless, I am confident that as soon as I follow the steps here to a T, I can make my app up and running soon!
Android can be considered as the top contender of-of those companies with big names in phone and application field. This book walks me with what android is and how android is the best choice when it comes to phone applications and phone development. I love reading this book because I have learned so many things about android easily. The topics were great and designed specifically for beginners to easily understand about android.
This book excites me to try this application! Learning on how to execute this programming application sounds hard at first, but reading this book gave me an idea that it can be done with patience and a keen eye when applying the codes to get a better output.This book is preferably for beginners like me and it is indeed a good guide as it has a comprehensive information of android.5 stars!
Definitely the most decent book I've read about Android programming so far. I'm a beginner in programming in general. Programming is such an amazing thing and I decided to give it a try. Since I'm a smartphone and android lover, I decided to start on Android programming and this book got me started pretty quickly. Samuel has written the book in technical but less complicated manner. Aside from the basic details, this book leads you to which topic you should move on to and that's exactly where I'm headed to. Great book for beginners.
