Android Studio 4.0 Development Essentials - Kotlin Edition : Developing Android Apps Using Android Studio 4.0, Kotlin and Android Jetpack

Description

Fully updated for Android Studio 4.0, Android 10 (Q), Android Jetpack and the modern architectural guidelines and components, the goal of this book is to teach the skills necessary to develop Android-based applications using the Kotlin programming language.

Beginning with the basics, this book provides an outline of the steps necessary to set up an Android development and testing environment followed by an introduction to programming in Kotlin including data types, flow control, functions, lambdas, coroutines and object-oriented programming.

An overview of Android Studio is included covering areas such as tool windows, the code editor and the Layout Editor tool. 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.

Chapters are also included covering the Android Architecture Components including view models, lifecycle management, Room databases, app navigation, live data and data binding.

More advanced topics such as intents are also covered, as are touch screen handling, gesture recognition and the playback and recording of audio. This edition of the book also covers printing, transitions, cloud-based file storage and foldable device support.

The concepts of material design are also covered in detail, including the use of floating action buttons, Snackbars, 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 4.0 and the Android SDK are also covered in detail including the Layout Editor, the ConstraintLayout and ConstraintSet classes, MotionLayout animation, constraint chains and barriers, view binding, direct reply notifications and multi-window support.

Chapters also cover advanced features of Android Studio such as App Links, Dynamic Feature Modules, the Android Studio Profiler and Gradle build configuration.

Assuming you already have some programming experience, are ready to download Android Studio and the Android SDK, have access to a Windows, Mac or Linux system and ideas for some apps to develop, you are ready to get started.
