Description & Features

This text is an introduction to mobile app development, providing instruction in the basic skills to develop both Android and iPhone/iPad apps. It covers app creation through publication on both platforms. The authors believe the only way to learn a technology is to use it, so the book is structured as a series of tutorials that provide hands-on, step-by-step instruction.

  • Edition 2.0 is completely revised and updated to cover Android Studio and Swift.
  • Introduces AutoLayout for managing layout of iOS apps.
  • Updated with additional examples to reflect changes to the mobile development landscape over the last three years.
