"Exploring Android" Version 0.7 Released

Subscribers now have access to an update to Exploring Android, known as Version 0.7, in PDF, EPUB, and MOBI/Kindle formats, in addition to the online reader. Just log into your Warescription page and download away, or set up an account and subscribe!

This update adds four more tutorials:

  • Generating a “report” and saving it to a location specified by the user using the Storage Access Framework

  • Sharing that “report” using ACTION_SEND and FileProvider

  • Collecting a preference from the user

  • Downloading to-do items from a (fake) Web service using OkHttp and Moshi

Also, some dependencies were updated to newer versions.

In addition, the usual round of bugs were fixed.


At this point, I do not expect that I will add more tutorials. I do have some improvements to make to the existing set, and I am waiting on some Jetpack releases before doing that, so I am not in control over the timing. Hopefully, there will be another update to this book in a month or two.
