The book starts the reader off into the journey of developing apps using the visual development environment called App Inventor. The style of the book will be familiar to those who have picked up books on writing programs in C or Java. The reader is taken through a series of chapters, each with example apps gradually increasing in capability. The text is clear and accessible, and with comprehensive knowledge of the author, the reader feels in they are in good hands.
I should warn that there are 15 chapters along with an appendix at the end: what this needs is some signposting, and this is exactly what is given page 2 onwards. I would highly recommend the reader not skipping this section.
Fellow reader who is familiar with the Android platform would find chapters 12 and 13 on sensors and communication very useful. This is pretty much where the added value of mobile apps lies.
I would like to recommend this book for its readability and comprehensive coverage of app development for Android. What better tool to promote than the one hosted by MIT and Google. Full of useful illustrations, crafted in easy style, this book is a good addition to a developer's bookshelf! At £25.49 (Amazon), it is good value too!
