Book Content Summary
Getting the right resources for Android programming language is a daunting challenge owing to the fact that there a million and one references out there. Different authors compile their books in different ways, some easier and others actually complicating the simple things. Android is a fancy programming language which just needs specific tutorials and references to all take along. You would be surprised if I pulled out the number of times people have searched for “the best android development materials” over the internet. It is probably the reason you are here.
Heads up first! As soon as android developed the language, they also wrote the whole training manual for it. This was meant to jumpstart developers into embracing it, which of course went on well and here we are! The bad news is that the manual is only online – it is only accessible from the official website. So what happens to offline programmers like you and the rest?
I bring you good news. DOCAND makes a distributable version of that manual for you. What happens is that you get those exact notes, but you don’t have to be online to read them. All you have to do is simply buy the book and you are good to go.
Reasons you should buy Android API Manual
– It is way too cheap. It is being sold at $3.00 which is cheaper than you thought it would be. I bet if it was being given for free and then people asked to donate instead you would have donated more than that.
– Extensive. Did I say that it is based on android.developers.com Develop API Guides? Well, this is by far the most well-sought android reference material you will ever get on the planet.
