Introduction to Android App Development for the Kindle Fire
Practically overnight, the Amazon Kindle Fire has become the world's top-selling Android-based tablet. Since Kindle Fire uses a customized ("forked") version of Android, however, developers need specific knowledge to successfully create apps for it. Now, the world's leading Android programming authors have written the first complete, hands-on introduction to Kindle Fire development. Lauren Darcey and Shane Conder begin by thoroughly introducing Kindle Fire hardware and the Android development toolset, and explaining what's involved in building Kindle Fire-specific apps. Readers learn how to manage application resources and configure Android app Manifest Files; then walk step-by-step through designing and constructing application frameworks including user interfaces, logic, and support for networking and web services. Darcey and Conder walk through testing Kindle Fire apps; registering as an Amazon developer; publishing apps on the Amazon Appstore, and much more. This book requires no mobile, Android, or Kindle Fire development experience: any reader who's written Java code will be able to dive right in - and get results, fast! Note: This book includes some text drawn from the authors' "Sams Teach Yourself Android Application Development in 24 Hours, Second Edition."
