We set out to write a book that goes beyond the basics - that doesn't just tell you "what" but also "why" and how best to make use of your knowledge to create rich, compelling Android apps.
This book at aimed at people with some programming experience. It will tell you how to turn your knowledge of Java, iOS programming, and other experience into productive results in Android.
Android is new and different, and the best Android software takes advantage of how Android enables you to store data, communicate between processes and applications, and how Android applications interact with the Android operating system. This book will help you build those advantages into your apps.
