Most importantly, being able to spot these recurring patterns is helpful in analyzing user interfaces you encounter every day. And that, in turn, should help you improve your own designs.
You can read my full review at Web Designers Review of Books dot com!
The title claims that the book contains "UI patterns for iOS, Android and More", but the majority is iOS. I'm and Android developer and the Android examples in this book are taken from ancient Android versions. Android (and iOS) have evolved a lot and have much nicer UI patterns / solutions for certain problems you can find in this this book. If you seek Android UI/UX advise you are much better of keeping an eye on the Android Design website where information is updated, rewritten and added frequently. Although it's probably a good thing to elaborate on how patterns are used in current apps around the globe 'current' is bound to be outdated fast in a print book. So use this book and the screenshots in it as a view of how things are done in the 'past' and you can maybe find a use for it. It does contain a wealth of pattern names in the appendix, which is great to create a common vocabulary between designers and developers.
For $44.99 I wouldn't recommend this book to others. A price of $29.99 is more suitable and would maybe add an extra star. It is a good book for beginning mobile designers and developers. More seasoned pro's probably have their own on-line and more up-to-date resources on this topic and probably have their own view and opinion of what is good mobile design.
Some of the reviews point out there's a lot of iOS screenshots, and the Android ones are of older versions. While this is true the author has a great collection of up-to-date shots in the accompanying Flickr group ( [...] ).
I definitely recommend adding this to your UX bookshelf, digital or physical.
