Gold for Android Beginner!,
This review is from: Beginning Android (Expert's Voice in Open Source) (Paperback)
I have just finished reading this book. it is simple and that is its power. It is highly recommended book for beginner who want to know to design and developer their Android application. It starts with explaining all the android control with complete examples and their counterpart resemblance to Java controls. then it moves to more advanced stuff calling services, accessing local database, networking API and rotation too but still maintaining its simplicity.
In the last discussing about the Android capabilities like maps and telephone calls.
simply good Job, Mark Murphy!
