Description

Android for Programmers: An App-Driven Approach (2nd Edition) – eBook PDF

Android for Programmers, 2nd Edition, (PDF) presents leading-edge computing technologies for professional software developers. At the heart of the ebook is the Deitel “app-driven approach”–concepts are presented in the context of complete working Android apps, instead of using code snippets. The overview and app test drives at the beginning of every chapter show one or more sample executions. The ebook’s source code is available at www.deitel.com/books/androidfp2.

The expert programmer’s Deitel® guide to tablet and smartphone app development using Android 4.3 and 4.4, the Eclipse-based Android Development Tools and the new Android Studio

Numerous apps have been downloaded from Google Play™! This ebook gives you everything you’ll need to start off developing great Android apps quickly and getting them published on Google Play™. The ebook uses an app-driven approach–each new technology is discussed in the context of seven fully tested Android apps, code highlighting, complete with syntax coloring, code walkthroughs and sample outputs. Apps you’ll develop include:

  • Doodlz
  • Flag Quiz
  • Tip Calculator
  • Welcome App
  • Address Book
  • Cannon Game
  • Twitter® Searches

The first-generation Android phones were launched in October 2008. By October 2013, a Strategy Analytics report revealed that Android had 81.3% of the international smartphone market share, compared to 13.4% for Apple, 1% for Blackberry and 4.1% for Microsoft (bit.ly/1aqIZXf). Several apps have been downloaded from Google Play. There are now over one billion activated Android devices worldwide and over 1.5 million Android devices are being activated daily. The options for Android app developers are enormous.

The apps in this ebook were wisely designed to introduce you to key Android features and APIs. You’ll quickly study everything you need to start building Android apps–beginning with a testdrive of the Doodlz app in Chapter 1, then constructing your first app in Chapter 2. By the time you reach Chapter 9, you’ll be ready to make your apps for submission to Google Play and other app marketplaces. You’ll get skilled at the Google Play submission process, including uploading your apps, deciding whether to sell your apps or provide them for free, and marketing them using in-app advertising, Internet public relations, social media and more.

Reviews

Addresses a compelling set of topics in an instructive and fun way. Creates UI/layouts with a depth I’ve not seen elsewhere. The Flag Quiz app is pleasing–View animation adds a professional touch; clear description of key UI elements. The Address Book chapter is a useful introduction to CRUD-type apps.” — Sebastian Nykopp, Chief Architect, Reaktor

Remarkable job illustrating the Visual Layout Editor; I liked the approach of creating a plan then building visual components without code; this makes it easy to experiment with other properties to tailor the look of the app. The line-by-line explanations of the code are tremendously valuable; this is a solid introduction to how Android works. The Flag Quiz app is an important chapter. The Cannon Game app is a nice overview to animation. Favorite Twitter Searches taught me things I didn’t know. The Doodlz app chapter uses great examples to demonstrate the different concepts. The Address Book app is a good outline to database access on the Android platform that shows the structures required for SQLite databases.” — Eric J. Bowden, COO, Safe Driving Systems, LLC
