The Busy Coder's Guide to Advanced Android Development Version 2.4 Released
The Busy Coder’s Guide to Advanced Android Development Version 2.4 is now available for subscribers in all formats.
This release adds:
A section on using
RemoteViewsas the basis for a plugin framework, to allow one app to add to the UI of another app.
A chapter on the challenges for writing for the WIMM One wearable Android device.
More coverage of the
Loaderframework, particularly on what occurs with a
Loaderduring different events, such as the activity being destroyed, the device being rotated, etc.
Brief coverage of the impact of the split action bar on action modes.
A bug fix and explanation for the
FeedsActivity, to repair a flaw whereby multiple fragments would overlay each other if you rotated the screen while in the tabs mode.
I am anticipating another update to this book in about a month. One of the highlights of that release will be coverage of developing for the NOOK line of Android devices.
