March 2011 | Beginner's Guides, Networking & Telephony, Open Source

Packt is pleased to announce Android User Interface Development: Beginner's Guide, a new book which helps developers understand the principals of a good user-interface design, and implement the best user interfaces on an Android mobile device. Written by Jason Morris, this book aims to equip its readers with the knowledge required to build killer Android applications.

Android is a mobile operating system based upon a modified version of the Linux kernel. The Android Open Source Project (AOSP) is tasked with the maintenance and further development of Android. The Android operating system software stack consists of Java applications running on a Java based object oriented application framework on top of Java core libraries running on a Dalvik virtual machine featuring JIT compilation.

Android User Interface Development: Beginner's Guide book introduces the fundamentals of good user-interface design from a developers' point of view, and covers everything that’s needed to style applications.. It aims at building design understanding on a chapter-by-chapter basis, whilst introducing platform knowledge through examples. Readers will also learn how to explore and implement multiple layouts in Android to design user interfaces for different screen sizes and densities.

This book will even help a novice Android developer to get a good grasp of user-interface design, whilst working through examples, diagrams, and screenshots to showcase the various widgets and tools that the platform makes available. Developers would learn to entertain their application users by animating visual queues of what the application is currently doing, and what effect their actions are having.

Those who have little experience in Java and want to build applications for Android phones will find this book to be an interesting and beneficial read. The book is out now and available from Packt.
