Hi,
I've taken J6 certification and now I want to write some app. for Android.
I've done the tutorial Notepad example that Google provide, but it's not enough for me.
I need more examples to show how to link between activities, using context and also services, building Intents and other basic stuff that I need to know.
Now I'm doing some simple app. but I need some tutorial to show how to link the activities and services.

I found a good book but for advanced Android programmers and I can't use it right now. I need the basis.
The book is called "The Busy Coder's Guide to Advanced Android Development". (maybe helps ).

Can anyone tell me some links with tutorials or some books that I should read first?

Hi Andi,
I suggest that you bookmark Android Developer's official documentation, it should be your primary resource.

Check also our Android FAQ page, it is extensive and covers a lot of Android's areas.

Books
1. You have to start with "The Busy Coder's Guide to Android development" before going to use "The Busy Coder's guide to Advanced Android Development".
It contains examples to all basic concepts, UI's and the author covers pretty much everything. You will find all you need here
2. You can always refer Android API Demo's which are available in your SDk's (If downloaded of course).
3. Also by Pro Android and Professional Android Application Development books are useful.

Blogs

PS : - The following link are posted for your reference alone and it helped me when I started Programming Android Apps
