This book on Android programming was written for developers who have worked with Java before and want to start developing for the Android Platform. The author made this as much 'hands on' as possible, placing example codes everywhere it fit.
Designing an Android app needs to be a constant collaboration between design and development. The look and feel of the app should be discussed by both parties from the beginning. This document is written from the point of view of a visual designer.
The book prepares you to take the exam for the Associate Android Developer Certification. You learn basic Android programming concepts and build a variety of apps, starting with Hello World and working your way up to apps that use loaders.
