Though I have a strong Java and mobile programmingbackground, I have no familiarity with Android. I needed to get upto speed quickly, and thought I would go with an OReilly book, usuallya good bet.I ended up using the intro to quicklyget started with eclipse, and then moved into the view section to puttogether an interface without much trouble (useful examples),and am looking at theadvanced sections to learn about Android’s NFC feature. The 3rdsection is enlightening, saving me from some design mistakes that I wassure to make. I did, however, feel that some of the information in thelater chapters was overmy head, targeted at an audience with more outside knowledge.Overall, the book is both good at introducing the basics of Android,and covering the more advanced topics.Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment VJ May 21, 2012 at 11:51 pm 14 of 14 people found the following review helpful Great Book on Android, August 17, 2011By VJ – Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Programming Android (Paperback)I have been waiting for a while for a book like this for Android Technology. I have been doing general programming for several years. I found this book very educational and here are a few sections in the book that really stood out:Chapter 7 of the book titled “Building a View” provides an excellent understanding on how the “views” in Android work. The explanation by the authors, using diagrams showing how the traditional model view controller architecture comes together in Android is very educational. I have been waiting for a good tutorial along these lines for some time.Chapter 12 and 13 deal with content providers. The extensive treatment of content providers with example code and a sample application provided me several new insights in how this technology works, and how it can be used in real programming situations. The content provider framework for storing and referencing data using URIs is one of the novel features of the Android operating system. Great work in explaining the technology step by step!The discussion on 2D and 3D graphics is also very informative. I learned a lot from this book. I would highly recommend this book to any developer or any Android Project Manager. Even experienced developers may learn a thing or two, if they go through this book. An excellent book, on Android.Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment A.

Jaokar (UK) – This review is from: Programming Android (Paperback)This book goes past the basics and provides a deeper level of understading of every topic it touches. It has a particular focus on how Android’s data archiecture provides a model for apps that use a Web service, improving apperent performance and presentation of data.It is also the first in-depth book to cover Fragment and related classes that go into making Android tablet user interfaces. Additionally, it covers the compatibility library that enables running Fragment-based UIs on pre-Honeycomb versions of Android.Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | CommentComments are closed.
