Hi Mark,

Does Andriod natively provide rich UI toolkit?

If yes, do you cover this in detail in your book?

Frankly I am a bit surprised by this question - android would be pretty useless if it did not provide a UI, wouldn't it? For example, if you did not have Widgets like Buttons, TextViews etc, what would your app consist of? Unless of course you are making a Service which runs in the background and does not require user interaction.

Need not to surprise too much Rohan.... Since, if the platform supports UI doesn't meant that it provides very Rich UIs. Moreover, I'm new to Android, just want to confirm with the Author. That's all.

Because one of the post Author was relating Android with Java SE. IMO, java SE doesn't provide a rich UI collection in the early stage of the product released, in fact even now.

I doubt there is a mobile platform that offers "a rich UI collection", if you consider Swing and SWT to not qualify.

 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
