The Deitels' App-Driven, Live Code Approach is simply the best way for working developers to master Android programming! Following up on their best-selling iPhone For Programmers, the Deitels teach Android programming through sixteen complete, working Android Apps. Each chapter presents new concepts through a single App. The authors first discuss what the App does, show screen shots, test drive the App, and present an overview of the technologies and architecture used to build it. Next, the authors walk through building the App, presenting complete code and providing a detailed "Live Code" walkthrough. As part of the code walkthrough, they discuss essential programming concepts, and demonstrate the functionality of relevant Android 2.x APIs. Readers will gain hands-on experience with a wide spectrum of essential Android APIs. They will also learn how to use Eclipse and Android Development Tools (ADT) for Eclipse to successful create, debug, and deploy Android apps. The Deitels have long been the world's #1 Java programming book authors. They have a large reader base: one that has grown even larger in the wake of their success iPhone For Programmers.
