The Busy Coder's Guide to Advanced Android Development Version 1.9.3 Released

The Busy Coder’s Guide to Advanced Android Development Version 1.9.3 is now available for subscribers.

The “only” substantial change to this book is a nearly 50-page chapter on advanced uses of fragments and the action bar, including:

  • dynamic fragments with FragmentTransaction
  • tab and list navigation with the action bar
  • leveraging that “home” icon in the upper-left of the screen

The sample app was written using the Android Compatibility Library and so works on phones and tablets alike.

The next update to this book probably won’t be until June, and hopefully it will be 1.9.9, so I can finally get a print update out the door…
