By Rick Rogers, John Lombardo, Zigurd Mednieks, G. Blake Meike

This useful ebook offers the ideas and code you want to strengthen software program with Android, the open-source platform for mobile phones and cellular units that's producing enthusiasm around the undefined. according to the Linux working process and built by means of Google and the Open Handset Alliance, Android has the aptitude to unite a fragmented cellular marketplace. Android software Development introduces this programming surroundings, and provides you an entire for instance that demonstrates Android architectural gains and APIs. With this booklet, you will:

* Get an entire advent to the Android programming surroundings, structure, and tools
* construct a modular software, starting with a middle module that serves to release modules additional in next chapters
* examine the innovations and structure of a particular function set, together with perspectives, maps, location-based prone, chronic information garage, second and 3D pictures, media companies, telephony prone, and messaging
* Use ready-to-run instance code that implements every one feature
* Delve into complex subject matters, similar to protection, customized perspectives, functionality research, and internationalization

The ebook is a traditional supplement to the present Android documentation supplied by means of Google. even if you need to advance a advertisement program for cellular units, or simply are looking to create a cellular mashup for private use, Android program Development demonstrates how one can layout, construct, and try out functions for the hot cellular market.

This matters major tale: Assembling an Altair

Byte journal used to be an American microcomputer journal, influential within the overdue Seventies and through the Eighties as a result of its wide-ranging editorial assurance. while many magazines from the mid-1980s have been devoted to the MS-DOS (PC) platform or the Mac, regularly from a enterprise or domestic user's viewpoint, Byte coated advancements within the whole box of "small pcs and software", and infrequently different computing fields resembling supercomputers and high-reliability computing. assurance was once in-depth with a lot technical element, instead of user-oriented. Print ebook ceased in 1998 and on-line e-book in 2013.

Sample text

Once you exit this method, Android may kill your activity at any time without returning control to you. onStopCalled when your activity is no longer visible, either because another activity has taken the foreground or because your activity is being destroyed. onDestroyThe last chance for your activity to do any processing before it is destroyed. Normally you’d get to this point because the activity is done and the framework called its finish method. But as mentioned earlier, the method might be called because Android has decided it needs the resources your activity is consuming.

You are receiving keyboard and touch inputs, and the screen is displaying your user interface. onResume is also called if your activity loses the foreground to another activity, and that activity eventually exits, popping your activity back to the foreground. This is where your activity would start (or resume) doing things that are needed to update the user interface (receiving location updates or running an animation, for example). onPauseCalled when Android is just about to resume a different activity, giving that activity the foreground.

Hello, Android So enough downloading; let’s write a program. ” program is traditional, and we will start with something similar to demonstrate what you need to do to create, build, and test an Android application. We won’t explore much of the Android API for this program—that’s left for the following chapters—but here we’ll get a taste for the development environment and the steps you go through to create an application for Android. Where We’re Going There isn’t much functionality in this program.
