Do you get into the widget side of Android? I'm really interested in making good widgets.

Hi Lucas,

Learn Java for Android Development is not a book about Android programming; there is only a tiny amount of Android-specific material. Instead, my book explores the Java language and foundational APIs (such as collections) that aspiring Android developers need to know.

I am currently writing a book for Apress called Android Recipes, which is due out next March. This book will focus on Android programming, and will include material on widgets, loopers, handlers, message queues, activities, Scripting Layer 4 Android, OpenGL ES, and more.

All the best.

I agree. Here's the link:
