An introduction to the architecture of Android is followed by an in-depth look at the design of Android applications and user interfaces using the Android Studio environment.

More advanced topics such as database management, content providers, and intents are also covered, as are touch screen handling, gesture recognition, camera access, and the playback and recording of both video and audio.

This edition of the book also covers printing, transitions, and cloud-based file storage. The concepts of material design are also covered in detail, including the use of floating action buttons, Snack bars, tabbed interfaces, card views, navigation drawers, and collapsing toolbars.

In addition to covering general Android development techniques, the book also includes Google Play specific topics such as implementing maps using the Google Maps Android API and submitting apps to the Google Play Developer Console.

Other key features of Android Studio 3 and Android 8 are also covered in detail including the Layout Editor, the ConstraintLayout and ConstraintSet classes, constraint chains, and barriers, direct reply notifications, and multiwindow support.
