The following is the first few sections of a chapter from The Busy Coder's Guide to Android Development, plus headings for the remaining major sections, to give you an idea about the content of the chapter.
Much of this book has been focused on what you should do. In contrast, this chapter is focused on what you should not do.
All platforms have their anti-patterns: things that are technically possible but are not in the best interests of the users of that platform. Android is no exception. Some anti-patterns are simply annoying to users, while other anti-patterns can significantly infringe upon a user’s use of their Android device, or even the user’s freedom.
Much as the Hippocratic Oath directs doctors to “first, do no harm”, Android application developers owe it to the users of their apps to avoid these anti-patterns to the greatest extent possible.
This chapter assumes that you have read much of the book, particularly the core chapters.
