Try to use eclipse 4.2.1 and android 4.1 SDK to program the examples on chapter 11. You will not find it possible. Every word is exactly the same as the book says but the program will just crash when it execute the routines in onCreate method of the main activity java code.
Its really hard to follow this book also. That was because the author does not give you a good big picture first. And there aren't any integral projects that piece everything together.
In general, this book is a piece of x*#(# ! Don't buy!
I found that a lot of new android amateur faced the same problem like me.
Anyway I keep on reading and found many easy to understand topics and someday I may have a chance to try.I will read this book one more time.
I recommend seeking out another option until a second edition is published.
I think I'll get better results from the Android SDK website's tutorials, because I haven't found an example in the book that worked as written.
I would recommend looking elsewhere for instruction.
basics of using Android. All of the necessary "must know" details and items are covered to educate you and start you on the trek towards using Android and formulating your basics of app development.
