1.0 out of 5 stars Wasted money - it's not a book for programmers 23 Aug 2012
By Catalin
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Take care when you buy this book. It's "Building Android Apps" USING APP INVENTOR. I haven't seen that - i haven't tried to magnify the cover. I've checked the index, the table of contents, they all seemed right.

Unfortunately, the title is deceiving. Amazon should add the "using app inventor" to it.

It's been a waste of money. I`m not returning it only because it would cost me more than I spent on it already.

If you plan on writing actual Android code, look for something else.

I like the way these easysteps books are design didactically. Unfortunately, this book is rather disappointing as it is only based on designing android apps using a beta version of the app inventor from Google. At the moment the app inventor is still quite limited in comparison to other tools in the market.
