Murach’s Android Programming

Book Description

This book teaches anyone with a basic understanding of how to develop apps at a professional level.

To start, it shows how to use the IDE to code, test, and debug a Tip Calculator app for a smartphone or tablet. Then, it expands upon this app to show must-have Android skills such as working with layouts, widgets, events, themes, styles, menus, preferences, and fragments. Next, this book presents two more apps that illustrate Android skills you'll use every day, such as working with threads, files, adapters, intents, services, notifications, broadcast receivers, databases, content providers, and app widgets. Finally, this book presents an app that uses the Maps and shows you how to submit your finished apps to the Play store.

The real-world apps let you see how the skills you're learning work together, and they illustrate how and when you'd use each skill. And all the content is presented in Murach distinctive "paired-pages" style that developers find so clear and time-saving for both training and reference.
