Beginning Android Application Development (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs. 474

This book is a guide that instructs readers on application development on the Android operating system, which is fast becoming a popular platform for smart-phones.

Summary Of The Book

With Android smart-phones doing the rounds in the market these days, the Android platform as well as its applications are the current rage. However, many people out there are clueless as to what Android entails and the know-how required to create one’s own applications.

This handy guide is just the book for beginners. Trainer and author Wei-Meng Lee has plenty of experience in this field and uses that to first provide an overview of the basic features and tools of the Android OS platform. He further proceeds to guide readers on their way to help create their own applications.

The book is replete with examples from real life scenarios and the knowledge and information provided is authentic.

Lee begins by explaining what an activity is before proceeding to customize these activities and apply various styles and themes to them. He then zeroes in on the screen and discusses, in detail, its components such as Relative Layout, Linear Layout, and Absolute Layout. Next, Lee teaches beginners how to adjust the display and different screen sizes. Text messaging, networking, and the variety of views (Text View, Time Picker, Progressor) are covered next. Lee also teaches his readers the different methods of creating Android services and educates them on how to interact with these services.

The book is ideal for anyone with a sound background in programming. Beginning Android Application Development was published in 2011.

First to review

Awesome Book

It has been a pleasure to learn Android application development with this book. I'm writing this review after I've finished more 3/4th of the book. There is very little flaw in it so far. Author Wei Meng Lee is really good. There is a certain sense of calmness in his words, which, to me, has been very helpful.

Good Opener into Android Development

This book is pretty good for Android Development Beginners. Being one myself, I have found it pretty useful and informative. Another book that comes to mind, is the "Hello, Android" Book by Burnette, also available on Flipkart.

I recommend this book for beginners like me, and also for trained professionals.

Excellent for the beginners.

The way of explaining the thing is very interesting. If you are new to Android Development then I suggest you to go for this book.

Waste of time if you actually want to learn something.

All the book contains is a step by step walkthrough on creating an app. Nothing more.
It teaches you nothing. Does not address doubts, or ambiguities. Does not explain WHY something is being done.
It is as good as an instruction manual, with zero teaching capabilities

I would HIGHLY discourage it if you want to learn to develop Android apps, and not just make one.

Not Clear!

The book starts well but as the book proceeds you dont understand a thingabout how to use methods your whys and whats remain unanswered really difficult to comprehend the book. The second chapter is very difficult i could not understand why has the author used many methods and how to use them myself!
