Great book I have developed software for 18 years but I am new to Android. I think this book is a great tool for someone that is already a developer and wants to jump into the Android platform. The book contains a wide variety of very practical examples with very good explanations. I can tell this author really thought through the content of the book. The result has been a fine compendium of the most important facets of Android development.

Great!! I picked this book up after completing my intro to computer science class where we learned Java, and thought it’d be good to learn to program for Android. I’ve been working on a small app of mine, and it’s great to go through the book and add new features. Awesome book for reference as well.I’ve found this book very easy to read through on the Kindle version when viewed on the PC, however I would not suggest copy and pasting the code. You won’t learn it as well, and the formatting will be a nightmare.I recommend this book to anyone with prior knowledge of Java looking to get in to Android.

Beginning Andoid 4 Application Development I just bought this book last week and start reading from chapter 1, 2, 3 and learned that this book is really easy to learn. I like the author’s style that he provided the code first and explained how the code does step by step later. It is easy to follow. This book describes what the title says: Beginning Android 4. I am new to Android, but I am an experience java web developer, that helps me to focus Android coding from this book and learn Android 4 very quick. I love how the book layout with multi-color which makes the reader easy and enjoy reading.If you a beginner, this book is for you. I will update more after finish the book.
