From the Publisher
Editors Note Android tablet apps are the next big growth area in the white-hot mobile application development space, and bestselling Android For Dummies programming author Donn Felker is here to guide you! Find out how to set up your Eclipse environment for tablet programming, work with Google’s new notification system, design apps that take advantage of larger tablet screens, and leverage Google’s redesigned widget API. Donn Felker, a sought-after Android developer and speaker, is noted for his clear instructions and accurate and understandable code examples: Just what you need when you get started in a new programming venture. Follow Donn as he demonstrates a simple example to get your Android environment up and running, use XML to create application menus, create an icon for your app, and submit an application to the Google market. Then Donn presents a more intense programming example that helps you put Android 3 through its paces (demonstrating creating an SQLite database running behind an application, notifications, allowing users to select options to tailor your app to their way of working, and much more). Prior knowledge of Java is helpful but not necessary.  Donn also happily directs you to the best online resources and code examples to prepare you to face more esoteric programming obstacles. Donn Felker and For Dummies: The best recipe to get started in Android tablet programming!
