Which book?

Postby gony » Sun Jan 10, 2010 5:49 pm

Hi,



I am an experienced Java developer with one iphone app under my belt.



I would like to learn android and was hoping someone could suggest which of the following books is the best to go with:



1. "Hello Android" by Ed Burrnette

2. "The Busy Coder's Guide to Android Development" by Mark Murphy



Also cab anyone tell me if "Beginning Android 2" by Mark Murphy is essentially the same as "The Busy Coder's Guide to Android Development"



Thanks,

I only have read "Hello Android" by Ed Burrnette, so I can't make a comparison. But for a android starter I think it's nice because:
-there is a nice balance between code examples and text/explanations (so not too much code).
-It's short/lightweight, so in a very short time you can cover a lot of subjects.
-it's is not very expensive, maybe you can buy a used version...

Good Luck
