Learning Android Application Programming for the Kindle Fire: A Hands-On Guide to Building Your First Android Application


The Amazon Kindle Fire is one of the most exciting and popular new Android devices available to consumers and application developers alike. It‘s so popular, in fact, that in the six weeks the Amazon Kindle Fire was available for purchase at the end of 2011, 3.9 million units were sold, accounting for over 14 percent of the tablet market, making it the #1-selling Android tablet ( http://goo.gl/f9hFM ). This book covers Android Fundamentals for Kindle Fire application development. Here, you are introduced to Android, become familiar with the Android SDK and tools, install the development tools, write your first Android application, and deploy it to a Kindle Fire device. You are also introduced to the design principles necessary to write Android applications, including how Android applications are designed, developed, and published on the Amazon Appstore.

Master Android™ App Development for Amazon’s Bestselling Kindle Fire™—Hands-On, Step-by-Step!

In this book, bestselling Android programming authors Lauren Darcey and Shane Conder teach you every skill and technique you need to write production-quality apps for Amazon Kindle Fire, the world’s hottest Android tablet. You’ll learn the very best way: by building a complete app from start to finish. Every chapter builds on what you’ve already learned, helping you construct, expand, and extend your working app as you move through the entire development lifecycle.

Darcey and Conder start with the absolute basics: installing Android development tools, structuring and configuring Kindle Fire apps, and applying crucial design principles associated with high-quality software. Next, building on this strong foundation, you’ll learn how to manage application resources and build application frameworks; integrate user interfaces, logic, and support for networking and web services; test your apps; and publish on the Amazon Appstore.
