    In this straight forward guide, Android programming experts Chris Haseman and Kevin Grant show students how to use the powerful set of Android tools to begin writing the next generation of Android applications.


    After a tour of how to install and configure the Android Studio and Eclipse,students  jump right in, building their first Android project. The pair demonstrate how to use the major building blocks for creating an intuitive and good-looking interface. Next, they show students how to retrieve data and use lists to display data. Chris and Kevin then explore how to use services-important, and often under-utilized, components of the Android platform. The two examine how to handle media and location services before showing students how to write applications for the diverse Android ecosystem and-finally-publish their application.
