I bought this book mid-August, I finally got around to some experimentation the first part of October. I was puzzled to not be able to find any of the example code on the O'Reilly site. In fact, the book is out of print. It turns out that the example code was made obsolete in May of 2009 when version 1.5 of Android Development Kit was released. An O'Reilly representative pointed me to the obsolete example source code at <URL disallowed> in case you need a template and/or are prepared to suffer through fixing the errors.Was this review helpful?

I bought this book in hopes of learning android. I have no previous mobile development experience, and no java experience, but have programmed in C#, so I understand the syntax. This book starts off great with very good explanations in the first chapter, but then quickly dives off track with sample code that doesnt even work. So, instead of being able to run the samples they are giving you, you have to flip through 100's of code errors to run the program. Too much work for me, considering I dont know the language yet.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
