Edited by Susannah Davidson Pfalzer
Google Android dominates the mobile market, and by targeting Android, your apps can run on most of the phones and tablets in the world. This new fourth edition of the #1 book for learning Android gets you started, covering all modern Android versions from Android 4.1 through Android 5.0.
Within minutes, you’ll create your first working application. From there, you’ll build up a more substantial example: an Ultimate Tic-Tac-Toe game. As you add features to the game, you’ll learn how to create animated user interfaces, play music and sound effects, build location-based services, and access web services. You’ll also learn how to publish your applications to the Google Play Store. Freshly added material covers new Android features such as fragments and Google Play Services.
If you’d rather be coding than reading about coding, this book is for you.
"A practical, highly readable guide whether you are just entering the world of Android application development, or if you have some experience but want to dive more deeply."
–Diego Torres Milano–geek, Android system engineer, Linux advocate, and author
