Turn your ideas into elegant and powerful mobile applications using the latest Android Studio for the Android Lollipop platform
About This Book
Who This Book Is For
If you have a great idea for a mobile app, and some familiarity with Java, or a similar procedural programming language, then all you need is this book to turn your idea into a reality.
What You Will Learn
Android is a mobile operating system that runs on a staggering number of smart phones and tablets. Android offers developers the ability to build rich and innovative applications written using the Java programming language.
Beginning with detailed instructions on how to install and configure the Android SDK, Studio, and Virtual Device Manager, the book moves on to creating a simple, but working, "Hello World" app that can be run on a real device or emulator.
The book then moves on to layouts and the visual design of Lollipop apps. A new app is begun to demonstrate this and expanded as we move further, and, once material design has been introduced, the book moves on to the Java coding aspect and how to write code that responds to user interactions via callback methods such as touchscreen gesture listeners. No book on Lollipop APIs would be complete without explaining how the new Android TV, Wear, and Auto SDK tools work and how they can be utilized to either create new apps or convert those originally written for other platforms.
The book concludes by demonstrating how to package and deploy your finished app on the Google Play store.
