This book is great - it covers a lot of interesting places in greater depth. The author is clearly fascinated by Android and knows his business, and he 's nice to see that improvement as compared with the first version of the book. I found information on the background of service particularly useful.

Must-have if you 're going to develop on Android.

Android Two fairly new (as of March 2010), so with Android two books on the market, good quality was unexpected. I have not read all the sections, but here are my impressions so far:

Pro 's
=====
- Style by 'is neither boring or interesting, just a point. Most explanations clearly and thoroughly.
- I definitely feel that there is a good resource to complement the online Android documents. There were different theme I 've tried to respond to the use Android documents (and search Google), is not very lucky that this book covers well.
- There are many good topics. Spaces are not spent on reprinting information available on the Internet. Instead, the author regularly refers the reader to the web links.
- And finally, I appreciate a well-edited index.

Con 's
=====
- The book is very weak in the picture department. For example, instead of showing images from the raster NinePatch, the author explains how NinePatch should be built. It's chintzy and inexcusable for a book about the degree of visual technology.
- Sometimes, concepts are introduced without providing context. 'Kinda like when you enter the meeting and the speakers clearly know your stuff, but forget that 90% of others in the room should be brought up to speed before the briefing.
- A few notable omissions. For example, there is no information about the fonts.


I ma 'software engineer with 3 years experience developing applications Windows Mobile.
I need a book that
* In depth - Perhaps one of the most in-depth books available Android.
* Updated - This book is one of the most recent books on Android, covering Android SDK 2.1 R1.
* Lots of code samples in addition to the shortcomings of online Android Developer's Guide.
This book meets all my requirements.

As a careful reader, I found a lot of mistakes, just by reading chapters 3 and 5 alone.
I 've about these errors publisher' s errata page, as well as this book 's forum.
No book is perfect, so the spelling and typographical errors tolerable.
But incorrect or outdated information is not, so I hope that the author can fix
these errors in the next printing.

Despite the presence of a batch of these errors, I still give this book 4 rating because of other qualities,
The author was very interested in resolving these errors.
As well as reading other books, one only needs to be careful when reading, perhaps the best approach
read it together with the online Android Developer's Guide.
