About the Book

If you know how to program in Java, this is the first book you should buy for learning how to develop Android apps the way the pros do; it'll save you a lot of time and frustration.

Book Synopsis

This book teaches anyone with a basic understanding of Java how to develop Android apps at a professional level, using Android Studio.

To start, it shows how to use Android Studio to code, test, and debug a Tip Calculator app for a smartphone or tablet. Then, it expands upon this app to show must-have Android skills such as working with layouts, widgets, events, themes, styles, menus, preferences, and fragments. Next, this book presents two more apps that illustrate Android skills you'll use every day, such as working with threads, files, adapters, intents, services, notifications, broadcast receivers, SQLite databases, content providers, and app widgets. Finally, this book presents an app that uses the Google Maps API and shows you how to submit your finished apps to the Google Play store.

The real-world apps let you see how the skills you're learning work together, and they illustrate how and when you'd use each skill. And all the content is presented in Murach distinctive "paired-pages" style that developers find so clear and time-saving for both training and reference.

Review Quotes

"I like the fact that the book approaches the subject by using example apps as the theme of study, and working through the skills incrementally from easy to difficult. These case-study apps are complete apps by themselves and are worthy of being in the Android app stores." Jason Ong, ASP.NET World
