The start-to-finish guide to the essentials of Android development: Updated for Android 4.0+

 

Android Wireless Application Development  has earned a reputation as the most useful real-world guide to building robust, commercial-grade Android apps. Now, the authors have systematically revised and updated this guide for the latest Android 4.0 SDK. To accommodate their extensive new coverage, they’ve split the book into two volumes. Volume I focuses on Android essentials, including setting up your development environment, understanding the application lifecycle, designing effective user interfaces, developing for diverse devices, and optimizing your mobile app development process--from design through publication.

 

Drawing on decades of in-the-trenches experience as professional mobile developers, Lauren Darcey and Shane Conder provide valuable tips and best practices--including powerful techniques for constructing more portable apps. Every chapter of this edition has been thoroughly updated for the newest APIs, tools, utilities, and hardware. This new edition contains

 

•  Updates to all existing chapters, including many new topics

•  Full chapters on Android manifest files, content providers, effective app design, and testing

•  New coverage of working with fragments and other recent user interface enhancements

•  An all-new chapter on tackling compatibility issues

•  Expert coverage of today’s most valuable Android tools and utilities

•  Coverage of little-known SDK features that offer surprising power

•  Even more sample code projects

 

This book, and its companion, Volume II, are indispensable resources for Android development team members: software developers with all levels of mobile experience, team leaders and project managers, testers and QA specialists, software architects, and even marketers.
