Hello, Android Introducing Google's Mobile Development Platform (Book - 2), 3rdEdition 3rd Edition (Paperback) Price: Rs.375

Hello, Android: Introducing Google's Mobile Development Platform provides a complete introduction to the tools and the development techniques of the Android platform.

Summary Of The Book

The mobile segment has been experiencing explosive growth in recent years, and Android is the leading platform that powers these devices. The Android market is still growing, and it is a technology that cannot be ignored.

Hello, Android: Introducing Google's Mobile Development Platform introduces developers to this ubiquitous platform for mobile devices. Android is an Open Standards based operating system, and a set of tools, that was built on the Linux Kernel. Initially developed by Android Inc., it was completely taken over by Google in 2005. It is a fully open platform, and has numerous powerful features. While this makes the platform accessible to all developers, it still is a complicated set of technologies, and requires time to master.

This book helps programmers quickly familiarize themselves with the platform, and the related tools. Beginning with the mandatory “Hello, World” program, the book provides hands on experience to readers on the many features of the Android platform. Using the example of a Sudoku Game, the author gradually introduces the various programming features, and the many tools available on the platform.

The book shows how to integrate support for audio and video. It explains how to use the OpenGL to create powerful graphics, and how to connect with web parts and web services. The book also goes into the SQLite feature, which helps access and manipulate data. The readers will also learn how to publish their apps on the web, and make it available on the Android Market.

This edition of Hello, Android: Introducing Google's Mobile Development Platform has been completely updated and reviewed, to ensure that it includes the features of the latest version, and the recent updates of the Android OS and platform. It shows how to create Live Wallpaper, install applications to the SD Card, and how to build-in support for multitouch. This popular guide to the Android platform can help programmers quickly add Android development to their set of skills.

3 weeks back I decided I would learn android and today I am more than half way in developing my very own app completely on my own. This book is the perfect launch-pad for any passionate Android beginner. As a IT professional working on Android, I would recommend that you begin by reading this book upto User Interface design, then read "Beginning Android 4 Application Development - Wei-meng Lee" and use Google effectively and you will find Android a piece-of-cake. I was very much impressed with this book and have even recommended my seniors in office who are willing to learn Android to start with it. And yes, Flipkart delivery rocks!

An Amazing, Useful Book!

Trying to learn Android Development on your own, can be hard. I felt lost when I began my journey a couple of months ago. But this book has eased my job a lot!

Pretty much all that a beginner needs to do/know/understand, can be found here. Its perfect for a beginner and even intermediate users. The illustrations are pretty good. I certainly recommend this book for all android beginners out there.

Nice Book for Beginners

I wanted to learn Android development since long and have tried a couple of e-books but I find it difficult to study from e-books. That's when I decided to get a hard copy of this book for learning Android. The language is clear and instructions are easy to follow. Flipkart did a good job in delivering the book way before the expected date. Thanks.

Good One for Beginners.

Nice book. Explains the basic stuffs very well. Suited for those who are starting from scratch. Could have been more useful if basic packages are explained individually. Java knowledge will be useful in understanding the coding standard, but its not mandatory.
