Design interface will tend to get dated pretty fast. And this is really not a full review as of yet.I'm not really sure what I think of this book yet. I did the first read through, but I was not fully impressed just yet of what designs are shown.I was hoping for something that was going to walk through all the different views and what you can do with them. I had a CSS book that did a really good job of taking a projects from start to finish and adding in more each chapter.This book did give me some ideas, but some of the views like the master and detail did not seemed to be covered.I guess I expected the book to go through all the types you can setup when building in Eclipse. Those topics are probably a little more basic then what the book was covering. Not that generating lists are not coverered with custom designs, and that all appeared very detailed.I did a read through of the book, and adding in some samples into my code to give them a try. If you do go to older devices such as I keep a 2.3 version with me, the examples do not always compile nicely without some tweaks. Anything 4 and up is going to be good. The book itself is very detailed and tons of screen shots and code displayed. Each segment does walk through the attributes, although the examples may only walk you through the most common.that is kind of the downfall of most books is that if they stick with the most common, you really do not get your feet wet with some of the lesser known tributes. But any programming book for me is learned best by going through the samples and tweaking them and learning the errors. That is going to take just a little bit more time to go through.
