I found the overview to be very helpful, especially the lifecycle figure. The introduction really helped clarify the Android development platform.
I basically wanted a book that would cover general topics in Android development without a lot of hand-holding. I just wanted snippets of code.
The code samples cover everything from UI layouts, to events, to data storage methods, and so on.
I find that I keep going back to the book as I work on my own Android application for more clues on new problem areas.
This is NOT a beginner book nor is it good if you want a lot of structured "click here, type this, etc".
#2 So many tutorials are written in an unreadable, technical fashion. Some leave out detail that you need to download and correct. Others possess no development cycle because every step is new and related to past work.
This work avoids both of those problems. So congratulations to both the authors and the editors for a fantastic product. May others follow their example.
So dont just provide code examples, show the expected outputs as well.
Never the less I am confident by the time I am done with the book I will be far more proficient at same.
Its important to note that I don't buy that many textbooks - but this is one I am glad to own, and glad to pay for. Its well written, detailed and broad in topic coverage.
If you are new to Android programming, or just want a quick reference on how to do a specific task then this is worth having on your desk.
