As of June 2015, Android had 82.8% of the global smartphone market share, compared to 13.9% for Apple and 2.6% for Microsoft (http:// www.idc.com/prodserv/smartphone-os-market-share.jsp). Billions of apps have been downloaded from Google Play and more than one billion Android devices were shipped worldwide in 2014 (http://www.cnet.com/news/android-shipments-exceed- 1-billion-for-first-time-in-2014/). The opportunities for Android app developers are enormous. This book presents leading-edge computing technologies for professional software developers. At the heart of the book is the Deitel app-driven approach-concepts are presented in the context of complete working Android apps, rather than using code snippets. The introduction and app test drives at the beginning of each chapter show one or more sample executions. The book's source code is available at
