    Default How to program Android apps

    I've never programmed an Android app before, but a few years back I did do a bit of Java programming on my PC. I'm looking for recommendations on a book that gives step-by-step instructions on how to program apps using the Eclipse IDE. I have tried the training found here:


    but I need a lot more details on the fundamentals with lots of examples.

    I would suggest go through some basic java tutorials, there's plenty about and once you comfortable with those start looking at the Android Developers examples. It'll make much more sense then.
    I'm a Dev btw, never read any books though, hope that helps.

    Thanks. Do you have any links for Java tutorials and Android Developer examples? I did download and install the ADT Bundle from here:

    but their tutorial did not provide enough info to make sense of what I was doing.
