Hi all,

I am fairly new to Android development and I have recently finished the excellent Hello Android book. I now feel I have a good grounding in basic Android development but I would like to increase that knowledge further. Can anyone recommend a good follow on book to Hello Android that goes deeper into Android app development?

Thanks.

Hello Ben,

One of the books from the FAQ is Practical Android Projects by Lucas Jordan and Pieter Greyling (myself). As you might be aware, this book is featured on JavaRanch during this week.

If you feel that your basic Android development grounding is now solid and you prefer the approach of learning your next steps from real-world development projects and applications code, then I heartily recommend our book as a second Android development book.

The main theme of the book is to provide a hands-on approach to creating a complete, well-rounded Android development environment and SDK tools understanding that then underpins a range of real code project chapters. These code projects serve to illuminate the capabilities and flexibility of Android as a unique development platform and should get you well on your way to coding and building your own application ideas.

Hi Pieter,

Thanks for the reply - from your description this does sound like the type of book I am looking for. I shall look it up on Amazon now! )

Thanks again.

Ben.
