This is a well organized book, very easy to follow and give you great perspective on all details of how to build an Android application. It is divided in five major parts plus a series of Appendixes. First part does a quick presentation on Android Fundamentals, Second part covers Building an Application Framework, how you implement Splash Screen and a Menu screen, as well as Help and Scores screen if you are developing a game. Third part covers Enhancing Your Application with Powerful Android Features, that deals with usage of images and cameras, as well as network features and support, and social features. Fourth part is called Adding Polish to Your Android Application and teaches how to internationalize your application, how to develop for different devices and how to test your application. Last but not least, part five teaches you how to get ready to publish your application. This book is a valuable tool, explaining in details on how to create the developing environment and which are the best open source tools to use. Overall it is a very useful book, that I recommend if you want to start developing applications for Android platform. This book was written by Lauren Darcy and Shane Conder and the second edition was Published on August of 2011.

The back of the book promised that no Java programming experience was necessary. However, this book jumps right into the main concepts of the Java language with very little explanation. I didn't make it passed the 4th hour.

Not the status quo for SAMS, and not for beginners at all. Hour 8 will leave you hopeless.
