I bought this book without big expectations because no book can teach you the basics of programming and to develop apps in 24 hours (or in about a 100 pages or so).1. The writing and the editing are very poor. You can see a lot of typos (which do tend to happen, and are tolerable in a small quantity), but you can also see that the grammar isn't correct on many places throughout the book. Even if the authors first language isn't English, at least the book should be reviewed and edited before it's published and sold.2. The book deals with the history of Android and other trivia information, which is completely fine if that's the kind of book you're looking for, but I believe that the title and the description are misleading in telling someone they'll have a moderate knowledge of Android development after they're through the book.That being said, I've bought the book for just 99 cents to read on my Kindle and it isn't completely useless because you can read up on some of the history of Android and how it all came to be, why to choose a career in Android, etc.Bottom line is: The book has some nice information about the history of Android and careers in Android development, but don't buy this book to learn to program and develop Android apps. You will go through setting up your Java environment, the Android studio installation and even make a simple app, but even after all of that, you won't know how to develop your apps.
Android can be considered as the top contender of of those companies with big names in phone and application field. This book walks me with what android is and how android is a best choice when it comes to phone applications and phone development. I love reading this book because I have learned so many things about android easily. The topics were great and designed specifically for beginners to easily understand about android.
This is an excellent guide for anyone who wishes to learn Android programming. I did enjoy the fact that the author explains how to start in an easy to understand manner. In a world where apps rule and is a great way to make money, it is essential to start learning to code somewhere. Fortunately, this is great guide to begin and I suggest checking it out.
Android Programming for Beginners is a decent read. I found the concepts explained in a very detailed manner for anyone interested to learn the tricks of Android development to go up and running with the programming part. If you are a beginner in Android and want to develop an application, this book might be an introductory guide and a quick crash course. I will surely recommend this book to fellow developer beginners who are interested in learning the nuances of Android.
I have not finished yet but this book should be called "An Introduction to Android". One thing though is that the English and Grammer is extremely poor making it difficult to read. It is clear that English is not the author's primary language. I do however love the simplicity of the author's approach. High scores for that. You need an English speaking editor to work on the rest.
This is a really good book. The journey through this book teaches many things to build a strong foundation to be Android Programmer. It teaches things that you would never do in the wild but, you need to understand why. The curious and challenges sections are gold. The best book on Android I've read so far.
What a well written book! I love that it's written in such an easy to understand way yet actually goes into much detail. The images really helped me to pick up important concepts. This is the perfect book for both the beginner and the advanced. Definitely recommend this one.
Best android book that I am pretty sure would help us a lot. This explains how you can get started with android app programming by explaining the system and software requirements, creating for Java and a lot more. Great one.
