This should be your 1st buy over any others!,
This review is from: Beginning Android Application Development (Wrox Programmer to Programmer) (Paperback)
I viewed many books on here regarding Android development and, thinking I was indeed the target audience, I started with Android Development for Dummies.... Although not a bad book, it doesn't cover anyway near the amount this book does and not in as much detail either. The basics are all covered first, especially the layouts and then each item and how each item is handled (ie: buttons, checkboxes) You do create many apps, but repetative exercises are good for learning.
I actually want to read every single page in this book and find it well put together, informative, and examples are easily followed. Very glad I got this book rather than being disappointed by others!
