Android Essentials
Dear Reader,
This book covers the essential information requiredto build an Android application. It will help any developer, amateur, professional, or dabbler who is interested in
developing for Android. Over the course of the book, I cover the essentials you’ll need
to get started with your own innovative application. I took on this project because,
after five years of working in the mobile software industry, it has become clear that we
need help. Withmobile devices becoming more ubiquitous, powerful, and, indeed,
essential, fresh blood is necessary to overcome the stagnation that has plagued our
business. As an industry, we need to graduate from making cookie-cutter ringtones,
wallpaper, and e-mail applications. I hope, once you’ve finished this book, that you’ll
be in a position to start that killer mobile product you’ve told all yourfriends you’re
going to make.
In Android Essentials, I cover the details of installing and using the Android SDK,
making and rendering user interface tools, harnessing location tracking and Google
Maps, and putting everything together with a little glue from XML parsers and networking clients. These tools and tricks should be enough to get you past your empty
editor, the daunting blank canvas ofthe developer world, and onto the path of your
own innovative mobile app. Android potentially represents our best hope for a break
from the constricted world of mobile development. Use it to make something amazing. I can’t wait to see what you create.
