Editorial Reviews

Review

Android User Interface Design is a truly excellent book, written by one of the most experienced and knowledgeable Android developers. This is a very practical, highly readable guide and a great how-to resource for every Android developer. Each chapter reveals a clear and deep understanding of UI design. I highly recommend this book to anyone wishing to develop Android apps with superior UI.”

--Kyungil Kim, Software Engineer, Facebook

 

“I recommend this book for all Android developers who work alone and want to give a professional look to their apps. The content of the book is excellent and covers all aspects needed to understand how to design Android apps that stand out.”

--Gonzalo Benoffi, CEO, Coffee and Cookies, Android Development

 

“Design was never part of a developer’s job until mobile app development started; now it’s a must. This book gives a simple yet effective way to design your apps. It’s easy for beginners and informative for experienced developers as well. This is the best book I could ever refer to anyone who is in Android development. A one-time read of this book covers the experience you might gain from three years of learning development. I am amazed to see instructions on how to design starting from wireframes, which is something no other book has provided clear enough explanation of. (Some don’t even cover it.) I really love it. Thanks to Ian for this wonderful contribution to the Android developer community. Best, simple, and effective!”

--Chakradhar Gavirineni, Android Application Developer, Adeptpros IT Solutions Pvt Ltd.

 

“Ian’s book is an invaluable resource for everything there is to know about designing, creating layouts, and rendering Android applications. The ‘Common Task Reference’ appendix is an excellent addition that makes this book a must-have. Make sure to keep this one within arm’s reach of your desk.”

--Josh Schumacher, Software Engineer, HasOffers

 

“From the first few pages, this book provides a wealth of tips, tricks, and techniques for developing Android user interfaces. If you are grappling with all the various view types, then read this book--it really helps cement when and why you should include the various UI components to great effect (with worked examples!). Well worth a read by anyone looking for inspiration to improve their user interface into a great user experience.”

--Richard Sey, PassBx Developers
