This book is for a specific android version or at least we will have to use certain SDK version to follow all the examples ?.
Seems that the book is guiding us to create an android application, this explain a little bit how to setup your android development environment as well, as I notice some books that omits this completely and could be challenging for beginners to follow.
What about networking does this explain how get or push some data to the web. Definitively what I like for the index section is the `Staying in the background` seems really well describe how you manage this topic.

Thanks and congratulations for the new book.

Hello Mauricio,

You should download the latest version of Android Studio. The apps that we create typically target API 19 and above, although in a couple cases we might target later if we're demonstrating very new features. The great thing about the Android coding is that you can bundle in support libraries to your, which works like spackle on older devices. So you can write an app for an API 19 phone and have it look and work with UI features that were released long after the phone itself.

D+D
