It is written for Jellybean, but it is still appropriate for Kitkat and Lollipop.
Originally couldn't get the Map examples from chapter 7 to work. Since I revisted the Wrox website the chapter and examples have all been updated. Excellent.
I found using the recipes as an great way to learn Android programming, far more beneficial than an Android course I went on.
Pity he couldn't have made it 99 or 100 Recipes for Building Winning Apps. 93 sounds a bit lame!
I brought this book because it cut straight to the point where you know what you want to do in another language but don't know how to do it in Android. This covers 99% of the things you need to do to build business apps.
Hope they keep updating it.
