4.0 von 5 Sternen Nicht für Dummies geeignet 20. Dezember 2012
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Ein "for Dummies" Programmier-Buch sollte selbsterklärend den Beginner durch einführende Beispiele Schritt-für-Schritt führen. Das ist jedoch nicht der Fall:
1) Das Buch ist bereits nach 2 Monaten veraltet, weil sich Android und die Android Wizards seit Oktober geändert haben. Ich würde mir erwarten, dass die Autoren einen elektronischen Update auf der Webseite zur Verfügung stellen.
2) Das Buch setzt gute Kenntnisse in Eclipse (a pain in the A*) und Java voraus, womit alle Developer, die von .Net kommen draußen bleiben. Gerade Eclipse, seine vielen Bugs und die Android Plugins/Wizards erfordert ein einleitendes Kapitel. Was zB ist der Unterschied zwischen Project Close/Open und Export/Import. Warum funktioniert der Import nicht immer ...
3) Das erste Beispiel SilentModeToggle setzt Telefon-Funktionalität voraus und ist daher sinnlos auf einem Pad Device ohne Telefon.
4) Das zweite Beispiel NotePad Widget funktioniert unter dem neuesten Android nicht mehr ...

Das Buch ist jedoch sehr gut zu lesen, wenn man bereits Erfahrung mit Eclipse und Java hat und die Beispiele selbst zum Laufen bringen kann.

Es gibt derzeit imho kein einziges Android Buch, das für den Unterricht oder das Selbststudium wirklich geeignet ist. Weder in Deutsch noch in Englisch. Selbst Reto Meier's Bibel liegt deutlich unter dem Niveau, das .NET Bücher vorgeben.
Daher trotzdem 4 Sterne.

Das muss man wissen, wenn man sich mit Android einlässt.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Decent, lots of errors 23. August 2013
Von Charles Burton - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
My major gripe with this book are the typos, and I don't mean misspelled words in the descriptions. There's frequent typos in the book in the code sections. They're not always obvious either, there's one instance where they put in a class name that was nowhere else in the book. I looked all around in the book for the class and then finally just put in what I thought it should be because there was no other mention of it, luckily I put the right class in there. Second, I love a little abstraction and following OOP principles, I don't love having to back reference constantly to try and figure out what is going on with the examples. The examples in the book follow good general OOP guidelines, but it seems like frequently they overdo it in this book and it removes from the clarity of understanding how the differing parts work together. Overall I think it gives a decent understanding of how the Android SDK works, I just think that it had just about the worst editing I've ever seen in a programming book and the code examples were frequently too clever for their own good. Seriously though, you all need to not rush a book out the door and maybe actually do some editing. The typos make it look amateur.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Typos R Us - code samples are not usable 5. November 2013
Von L. Anderson - Veröffentlicht auf
Edit 17 NOV 2013:

I bought this book hoping to find a good introduction to Android Application Development after taking an online Java beginners class (Udacity) and in person XML classes from my local community college as well as numerous other computer courses such as C++, Python, Stanford's Database class. In other words, I was not an professional but not a complete computer novice either.

After reading this book I have to revise my rating downward to reflect entirety of the book. On the whole, I would not recommend it to either beginners or advanced users. It is neither a simple tutorial nor an advanced reference.

1) Installation of Java/Eclipse/Android ADT/ADK was fairly detailed and relatively up-to-date, although not completely (For the record, I am reviewing the 2nd edition of this book, which is most current as of the date of this review AFAIK).

1) Code printouts in book were nearly worthless, esp. to a beginner unfamiliar with Eclipse's auto-import functions etc.
2) The downloadable complete and corrected code was better, however, it was not at the URL location stated in the book. Instead, I found it at (remove the spaces): / WileyCDA / WileyTitle / productCd-1118387104 . html
3) The book is far too wordy and explanations feel very muddled. Much handwaving and beating around the bush. There seems to be too much happy-talk that detracts from the clarity of the writing more than put the reader at ease as it is intended to do.
4) There is too much guessing what the reader may or may not be feeling or thinking. This attempt at ESP is distracting and clutters the real content and should be replaced by better explanations of the topics at hand.
5) Code comments are too distant from the code they describe - sometimes as far as 2 pages away.
6) Code feels too narrow in scope and specific to the two sample applications. This is fine if you want to make:
a) An applet that allows you to turn your phone ringer off and on from the home screen (not too useful on my tablet)
b) A Reminder List (boring, and not explained very well in logical progressions. It's more copy the code and here's a general idea what it does)
7) Variable names not well chosen. In fairness, this is a common book authoring problem, but gifted authors find clever ways to distinguish built in classes and variable names from arbitrary user defined ones, for example, using silly names like "buttercups" for code that is arbitrary to indicate to the student that it most definitely is not a reserved system name without having to think too much about it. Instead, Java code like:

AudioManager audioManager = (AudioManager)context.getSystemService(Activity.AUDIO_SERVICE);

//Such naming systems confuse the beginning student as to whether the third "AudioManager" in line refers to
//an object or is a system mandated type name (p. 176 line 34)

I gave up trying to complete the code example in the second half of the book. I might return to it later but meanwhile am using other training resources.

If I had it to do over again, I would start with the 200 free video tutorials at TheNewBoston (google it or MyBringBack dot com by Travis Cornelius) and buy a book only if I still couldn't find what I needed on the Google developer site after completing that series of videos. The videos are short, clearly explained, and entertaining without being silly.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Easy Read, Good Content, Bad Typos 5. September 2013
Von M. Lawles - Veröffentlicht auf
First off - the book assumes Java knowledge so it's not targeted at complete newbies. For someone who has done other Java dev work though, it's a great primer for Android. I found it easy to read with lots of good examples of useful programming tasks. I went through it in a weekend and felt like I learned a lot.

ADVICE TO BUYERS: Download the source code from their website and use it to compare to the source in the book if you get weird errors. There are LOTS of serious typos in the code sections. As others have mentioned they're not minor either - we're talking completely different names for methods and classes, class file name mismatches and references to attributes that don't exist.

The code from the site works. I would have given this book a higher rating if it weren't for the absolute necessity of downloading the source to get things to compile. There should really be an errata or something for this.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Good Book 2. Januar 2013
Von Dan - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Started to read it with no java experience and it suggested a java programming book for dummies. Bought that too and was glad I did.
1.0 von 5 Sternen Not to say all the code is now rendered useless, as you CAN still learn from the book 8. Juli 2014
Von randy - Veröffentlicht auf
Borrowed from a friend, and the content had muddy explanations, typos, and outdated code. Not to say all the code is now rendered useless, as you CAN still learn from the book, but I suggest this book as a rental from your local library rather than a purchase.
