Book Description

Android has not only created a vibrant new market for mobile apps, it's also generating a new culture of interactive Java programming. This authoritative guide shows experienced application developers what they need to program for the Android operating system - the core building blocks, how to put those blocks together, and how to build compelling apps that work on a full range of Android devices.

With Programming Android, you'll learn advanced Java concepts in a way that any programmer can understand, even if you have no previous experience with the language. You'll delve into topics such as sensors, native development, and 3D graphics, and learn how to build Android apps on the platform of your choice, including Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X.

  • Explore the Android Framework and the Eclipse IDE
  • Understand Android's unique database design issues and examine the role of SQLite
  • Create an Android user interface that's captivating and easy to navigate
  • Make your app location-aware, and take advantage of multimedia
