What exactly is "professional" about it?
So far I'm very disappointed I bought this book. I mean the real reason I bought is because I dont absorb much from computer screens except for radiation and I like to be able to sticky pages and flip back and forth. But for a month I've been pissfarting on with the examples in this book trying to get them to work and quite frankly I feel like burning it.
You wanna make this book "professional" make it a bit more all round. Specifiy which examples will work with which release. Which ones dont. But more importantly as a developer I wanna develop for the biggest market so give alternatives. If something was remodelled in android 4.0 then at least in the download examples give an example of how it used to be done in android 3.0 and 2.0. At the moment I'm developing for Gingerbread because that's what's on my phone, but buying book 2 would be a waste given the support libraries but quite frankly i'm not prepared to spend a penny more. Hooray for internet piracy is all I can say. And if you are against your intellectual copyright being stolen well for that to apply it has to be "intellectual". Yes, I am questioning your intelligence. You should too.
But more importantly MAINTANENCE!!!! If the examples are deprecated such as the SimpleCursorAdapter, update your examples and post it on the forum. I imagine the Development LifeCycle of a book is almost exactly the same as the lifecycle of software or do you need to go back to software design 101.
As for the Stack Overflow Tag. I saw this and thought "cool I can pull up all the relevant posts. But not one exists with that tag. So I think you should give Dana an apology for your jip. But I make no apologies for mine. You need it.
Everyone else. Buy a printer and plenty of ink and stick to the android getting started site.
