Good book, but didn't check their own code
So far I'm only 113 pages in and have found a couple of examples that will not compile at all. The helloworld example they create to call the different intents using a menu is the one I'm on now that is broke. I have tried in the newest 2.2, and an old version, 1.5, and checked the Android Developer documentation. They call methods that do not exist, and if they created the method, they don't show the source or offer their source code with the book. I can get the code to work since I've been coding for over 7 years in Java but someone without prior coding experience and novice programmers will not be able to learn properly from those examples. So far though it has only been a couple of examples, not a lot, but then again, the ones that definitely work are the examples from Google. I will update this as I read through the book.
