Our top-notch Android instructors are currently working on this extensive tutorial guide to modern Android development. With a step-by-step approach, each new piece of each application is written and used by the reader, and then explained by the authors. Always useful, never abstract, you’ll get the kind of hands-on understanding of activities, fragments, services, and broadcast receivers that can only come from writing a program yourself. You’ll also learn how to work effectively with Eclipse and the Android Development Tools (ADT) plugin to run and test your programs on a phone, tablet, or software emulator.
