Android :: Best Book To Learn Programming

Jun 25, 2010

Can anyone recommend a good Beginner Android programming book? When I was in college about 20 years ago I used to program a lot (Basic, Pascal, COBOL, Fortran). I dabbled a little bit in VisualBASIC about five years go, but it was really a hack. Now, I really have a burning desire to write some applications for my Android phone, but I really don't know anything about all the new programming technologies (OOP etc). I'm looking for a good book that will teach me modern programming using Java and the Android platform.

I've seen good books on learning Java 6 and some good books on programming Android (but they all seem to assume you know Java or C), but nothing that seems to combine the two. I'd really like to learn Java right on the Android platform to begin with if possible. I know there are a lot of resources available online but unfortunately much of the time that I will spend on this endeavor is when I won't have internet access so a good book would go a long way.

I'm beginning to learn mobile programming on the Android platform. I'm up for working with any particular base SDK.

Samsung I7500 :: Is Programming For Android Completely Different Fron Programming For IPhone?

Dec 24, 2009

I have made apps for the iPhone, but want to also code for the Android but want to know if it is first worth my time, second worth my having to learn another language, and third worth the effort in the sense that am I going to make a profit from this. Also if in any way Android code is similar, then will it be hard to bring the iPhone (Xcode) files, or copy and paste my iPhone code into the Android code.

Android :: OpenGL ES Lagging - Learn ES 1.0?

Jan 22, 2010

Why is support for OpenGL lagging so far behind with Android? I have ebooks that date OpenGL 1.0 ES back to 1997 or so. I don't understand why ~13 year old technology is what's being offered in the Android API. Could someone enlighten me? What's the best path for someone wanting to learn OpenGL ES 1.0? The ebooks I have are of course not oriented for Java/Android and most everything in them doesn't work when I try it. I can post some specific examples later but at this point I'm just wondering if I'm wasting time or if I should keep going and struggle through it. I have a tiny amount of OpenGL experience but it's with 2.0 and apparently things were very different back in the ES 1.0 world. I guess my question boils down to, is OpenGL ES 2.0 support coming to Android anytime soon? And what OpenGL ES 1.0 + Android learning resources already exist?

Android :: Which GUI Framework Learn To Know Scripting / HCI?

Mar 6, 2010

I have some knowledge about Human computer interaction and some basic knowledge programming scripts (Python) that run from start to finish and automate some tasks I want to do or calculations. In the past I built interfaces in HTML with PHP behind it. I would like my python scripts to evolve from the command line and build some applications with GUIs that would allow the user to drag files and push buttons to initiate operations and check progress graphically. Since I write my scripts in Python I looked at some of the options (Tkinter, wxPython, PyQt) but I can't make a decision between them to invest my time learn one and not the other. My criteria: Has a introduction for programmers for GUI (what are the differences from a script, examples of some simple interfaces). A framework that would allow me to run my programs on the platforms I use most (Windows) but that can also run on Mac and maybe Linux, without too much modification. If not the same, similar to how you program GUI for Android and/or Nokia smartphones. I'm planning to write some programs for these platforms in the near future so I would like to carry over some of the lessons here onto those platforms, if possible. I did find this previous question but none of the answers are satisfactory. Does any of the frameworks fit these requirements better than the others or are they essentially similar and I would be happy with any of them?

Android :: Gmail Address Book On Web Contains Field For Birthdays - Why Not In Address Book

The Gmail address book on the Web contains a field for birthdays, so why not the Android address book? While I'm sure the app could undergo a lot of changes (and everyone would have different ideas) something as basic as a birthday seems obvious.

Android :: Which Mobile Platform Would Be More Rewarding To Learn As Developer?

Oct 1, 2009

I am interested in getting my feet wet in PDA/mobile development.The only two drivers for me are the drive to learn cool (or at least, new) stuff, and may be to code some app that I felt I really needed but lacked. As such, I would like to know what the comparative benefits/downsides would be for me as a developer in choosing one of the three platforms (iPhone vs Palm Pre vs. Android.I will have access to any of the 3 but not to Windows mobile).This is not a duplicate of this question, since I do not care at all about that question's data points (cost of the handheld, popularity of the platform). Also, just to be clear, my goal is not financial at all - I don't plan to make money off of such development nor directly use the skills in the area I might obtain in my career (e.g. I work on stuff that has zilch mobile exposure and will remain so). So concerns such as "installed user base" are pretty irrelevant. All I care about are tangible (learning) and intangible (sheer joy of it) benefits to me as a developer.Also, please be positive and don't put down other platforms or otherwise use this as a holy platform war excuse. I have edit privileges and will mercilessly edit any un-backed-up-by-facts attacks on any platform that aren't downvoted.

Android :: Help A Newbie Learn Eclipse / Debugging Best Practices

Jul 25, 2010

I am a newbie to Android and the Eclipse development environment and would like some advice on best practices for debugging my apps when they throw a Force Close.I have researched ADB, however, I can not get this to interact with my phone even though I have explicitly turned debug mode to true on my test handset.Obviously Android comes with a LOG method which I have seen utilized in many example apps, can someone please explain how to review these logs quickly and how to setup logging appropriately to determine the cause of a Force Close (always occurs when I push the Home button).Any advice on debugging effectively in Eclipse would be much appreciated!

Android :: How To Learn IPhone Development From Perspective Of Droid Developer?

Jul 31, 2010

I consider myself an Android developer, after having created four apps and learned a lot by creating them. Now I've begun my venture into the iPhone app development world, and I don't remember the Android learning curve being this extreme. It doesn't help, though, that I was very familiar with Java and Eclipse whereas I hardly even know how to use OS X. I learn fast and I know exactly what I want to make, I just need the means to get there. I'm really floundering with Xcode and the new project templates (of which there are several, and I hardly know what they mean). I know there are many books and things out there for starting from scratch but I feel like my Android knowledge should count for something. Is there a good resource for learning the basics of iPhone development, given that I am quite familiar with the Android platform? I'm looking for anything that converts Android knowledge to iPhone knowledge; a table of UI element names in each platform, or of concept equivalents, or a compare/contrast of the frameworks involved, or anything that will increase the rate of learning given that I know the Android platform already.

General :: How To Learn About Rooting On Nexus

Nov 24, 2013

I am considering rooting my phone because I like to tinker with things and learn new things, just for fun.Aside from learning new things, I would like to also install apps that require root permission like greenify... I'd also like to learn enough to remove crapware from my wife's gs3, but not until I learn how to do it with a level of confidence on my own phone.

I have a Nexus 4 right now, and a 5 on the way. I also have a 2012 nexus 7.Generally, how easy is to learn about rooting on a nexus? Good phone or tablet to start with? Easy to recover from mistakes?
