5.0 su 5 stelle The most popular Android book is now even better! 23 ottobre 2012
Di Etienne Savard - Pubblicato su
Formato:Copertina flessibile
In this book, unlike other books on Android, you will not only learn how to program for Android but you will gain a thorough understanding of its architecture. Indeed, this book covers much more ground than other books on the subject and each topic is supported by source code examples that you can "fork" on GitHub and use for your own projects. This is what makes it an invaluable reference book for any programmer coming to Android from Java, C++ or other mobile platforms such as the iPhone.

This book is divided into four distinct parts:

"Part 1: Tools and Basics" where you learn to familiarize yourself with the various development tools that make up the ecosystem of Android including a quick introduction to Java.

"Part 2: About Android Framework" where you will learn the necessary foundation to build robust Android applications.

"Part 3: A Skeleton Application for Android" will teach you Android Programming in more depth. You will learn to build a GUI that can run both on a tablet or on a smaller screen, the foundation for you to connect to web services using REST and more.

Finally, "Part 4: Advanced Topics" introduces you to more advanced concepts such as the search interface, geolocation & maps, multimedia, sensors, NFC, gestures, contacts and media-social and how to use the NDK to build Android applications in C++.

I own both the first and the second editions. I've compared the contents of two editions and I can stated that the book has been completely revised by the authors to clarify the text in several places and to update the examples to Android 4. For example, Chapter 6 of the first edition (Effective Java for Android) was merged into Chapter 3 and topics such as callbacks and overrides have been added.

Here is a non-exhaustive list of the improvements between the second and the first editions:

- A section called "Alternative Distribution" has been added to Chapter 4 (Getting your application into User's Hands), which describes how to publish your application on other distribution networks than Google Market (namely Amazon and Verizon).

- Chapter 6 (Building a View) was also largely revamped with the addition of sections on multi-touch and debugging & optimizing views.

- Addition of Chapter 11 (Building a User Interface) represents the addition of over 20 pages of new material that deals with the design of graphical user interface and takes into account the tablets. Chapter 7 (Fragments and multiplatform support) has also been extended to cover tablets.

- Chapter 14 (Search) was also added. It deals with Android's search interface and how to use it in your own applications.

- A section on StreetView was added in Chapter 15 (Location and Mapping).

- In chapter 17 (Sensors, NFC, Speech, Gestures, and Accessibility), the "P2P Mode" has been revised to cover the notion of "beaming".

- A section in Chapter 19 (The Android Native Development Kit) was added to describes how to edit C++ source code in Eclipse.

In all, close to 60 pages of new material have been added for this edition!

The code examples have also been revised and updated to Android 4 and their organization was also changed. Thus, in the GitHub repository, examples are now organized by subject rather than by chapter number to facilitate the search for a particular example by the reader.

In conclusion, Android Programming 2nd Edition, is still THE book to put in the hands of programmers who want to learn not only how to program Android, but also how to make well designed and robust Android applications.

5.0 su 5 stelle Better code, easier to find stuff 19 ottobre 2012
Di Rajdeveloper - Pubblicato su
Formato:Copertina flessibile
While looking for updated code for the I found that there is a newedition. I bought it at because they had a half-off deal on the ebook, and you can get it in pdf, but normally amazon is less.

I have not read the this version end to end, but the first thing I noticed is that the new example code is MUCH easier to find because directories have better naming. One missing piece from the firest version was explaining how to use AIDL and create APIs. This is now covered, along with an example. The first part of the book looks heavily edited to update it, and it looks like the two Chapters on JAVA got cut down to one, or merged. There must be added things too, since this one is longer.

Be careful to watch for new editions. I bought an old edition of another android book by mistake!

5.0 su 5 stelle 6 stars !! No-nonsense, useful and geared towards the professional 2 novembre 2013

This book is very likely one of the best resources out there for any developer who's new (or even reasonably experienced) with Android and wants to start making non-trivial apps.
I am an absolute fan.
Believe me, I wasted so much of my time reading the other highly rated / best selling Android book on Amazon - "Android Wireless Application Development Part-1". That book was ok in its own right but for a developer new to Android, it was organized like crap and was not at all cohesive and didn't give you the bigger picture to make useful apps.

This book on the other hand...
* Is geared towards the professional from cover to cover
* Has excellent structure and organization of information
* Indicates paradigms and best practices everywhere and explains by all kinds of analogies to things like web frameworks and apps, etc etc. You will have no issues understanding anything
* Most importantly, it has clear, HIGHLY useful, COHESIVE and INCREMENTAL example app code where they build up each sample app gradually with the introduction of new concepts, making the app more useful and feature rich.
I can't stress enough the value of this since it helps explain how to effectively USE the concepts / features taught and is kinda similar to how one would develop an app of their own - starting with a simple version and iteratively adding complexity and features to create more and more useful versions.
* Is very comprehensive and covers enough of the OS to get you making productive, useful apps rather than naive crap that you can anyways do using the thousands of scattered tutorials on the web.
* Even gives you brief and highly useful primers on the concepts / technologies that are pre-requisites for using the book effectively (eg. Java, MVC patterns, SQLite queries, etc etc)
You obviously do need to have some programming background and at least basic Java knowledge (like me) to make the best use of the book.

That's 6 stars already.

I'm reading this now when Android 4.4 just got released, but still find this book very relevant since it covers versions beyond Android 4.0 too
Highly highly recommend !

4.0 su 5 stelle A good book for those moving from another platform 17 gennaio 2013
Di C. Bess - Pubblicato su
Formato:Copertina flessibile
I have programmed on many platforms over the years, including mobile platforms like Windows mobile. I was looking at this book to bring me up to speed on Android and not spend a great deal of time on the basics of programming...
Programming Android started out with the Eclipse Development Environment, and that is a good thing since if you have never worked with Eclipse before, you'll need some help getting in installed correctly. I was a bit surprised it did not mention GIT or any other software configuration management tools, since you'll likely need one. The Eclipse IDE can be a bit buggy and no one wants to loose work that's been tested.
The book does briefly cover the basics of Java on Android but fortunately did not dwell on it for long. The book assumes a basic Java programming skills, describes the Software Development Kit (SDK), the basics of an Android application architecture and has a chapter on getting applications into the user's hands.
It is not until chapter 5 that a real Android coding example is really mentioned.
If you are into native coding, the last chapter was about the Java Native Interface. I was not going down that route, but it appeared to be well described.
One nice aspect of this book was that it told me why something gets done and not only how to do it, by rote. There are good architectural explanations as well as code to experiment with.
I can't say that by just using this book I'll write the most elegant code, but it does help you understand the decisions that need to be made and aid you in choosing one that works.
