    This book teaches you to leverage all the features available in Android 2.0 onwards. The only condition here is that you should already know about the basics of Java programming, Eclipse and the like.

    Starting with working on the basic Hello World examples, you slowly learn to develop more advanced apps with layouts, menus, UIs and other features. The ensuing chapters teach you to handle databases, location-based apps, widgets, network and radio connectivity features and such.

    You are then introduced to create more sophisticated surface views, animations and other interactive controls, thereby enabling you to gain more confidence with Android app development.
