Hello everyone. I've just finished Head First Java and really enjoyed it. Now i want to read some more advanced books but i don't know any. I'm interested in developing mobile and web applications , so if you can recommend me some books , that would be great.

Welcome to JavaRanch

Have a look at our book review page. There are bound to be books for mobile and web development, but I didn't find anything helpful when I searched. Maybe somebody else will know?

Ugur,
Welcome to JavaRanch!

For web, there is a Head First Servlet & JSP book. It is designed for the certification exam, but still covers the topics well.

For mobile, I'm not sure.

I got the HeadFirst Design Patterns.... I like it a lot.

I think it depends on what part of OO programming you want to do. I have an interest in design, and the HFDP was recommended in the HF Java book as a next step.

Mobile app development is a pretty generic phrase; you need to be precise. Which mobile platform are you targeting- iPhone, Symbian, Android? There are many books available for each of these. Also, different platforms require knowledge of different programming languages like Objective-C, Java, C/C++ to name a few.

if you are unsure, you can learn J2ME which is for all constrained devices like mobile phones, smart card application etc.
