About this book

Unlocking Android doesn't fit nicely into the camp of "introductory text," nor is it a highly detailed reference manual. The text has something to offer for both the complete Android novice and the experienced developer who is looking to sell his or her application in the Android Market. This book covers important beginner topics such as "What is Android" and installing and using the development environment. The text then advances to practical working examples of core programming topics any developer will be happy to have at the ready on the reference shelf. The final part of the book presents a pair of advanced application topics including a field service application with a web-based server side. The final chapter presents an out-of- the-box Native C application discussion and example.

The book is meant to be read from start to finish—and doing so will be of great value, as the chapters are laid out to build upon one another. However, if you are looking for a collection of practical, working samples, this title will also provide great value to you, particularly in part 2, where major subsystems and topics are broken down with practical examples.
