Hi Joel,
I would love to know what to expect in your book in terms of what approach you take to communicate the concepts of android programming to the reader. Also will Eclipse be the default IDE? Thanks.

In my book, I try to explain of the key concepts of Android programming by showing the reader how to create four simple but complete apps: a Tip Calculator app, a News Reader app, a Task List app, and a Run Tracker app.

The second edition of the book uses the Android Studio IDE.

Thanks!

Thanks for the details . Does your book teach on how to get data from one app to another in any of those 4 scenarios?
Secondly,can an android app talk to other databases apart from mysql?

Yes, my book shows how to use a content provider to store data that might be used by multiple apps.

Most Android apps use the SQLite database to store data locally. If they access data from the web, that data could be stored in any type of database including MySQL.

Thanks!
