Customer Reviews

Even though this book was published this year, the Android SDK has been updated since then and that means that if you try out the authors examples as written, they won't work. Once you've got your head around the changes needed to the authors instructions to make them work, the book is generally good though a couple of negatives... a) Most of the code that is supplied actually works but the author rushes through the logic of how it works. b) I was unable to get some of his examples working and, as the author had invited readers to leave comments and questions on the publisher's web site (Wrox), I was very disappointed with the responsiveness of their web site. Go there and you'll discover many other readers who have posted questions about the books' content who have had no reply from the author or publisher. So some very definite negatives but also some positives with some very interesting try out coding examples.
