Top 6 Best books for Android Development | Mastertheprogramming

In this tutorial, I am going to explain about top best android books to become a good android developer

In my opinion, a good book means

1. easy to understand so that noobie or a new person who doesn't anything about android development can easily understand android development.

2. the book you want to buy should cover all the contents so that you don't need to refer other books

3. that book should consist of many examples so that person who is reading that can read without irritating

Now you have understood my point of view for buying a good book for android development. The following are the good books for android development. before learning android you must have some knowledge of java. the books which I mentioned are already read by me. Books that are mentioned here are all related to java android development but not kotlin. I will say about books in android development in Kotlin in a later section.

I have positioned the books according to the numbers

 1. Head First Android Development: A Brain-Friendly Guide

this book is my favorite one because the author Dawn Griffiths explained very well. a very beginner who doesn't know android development at all can prefer this book, people who don't know anything about java language and you brought this book then it is a waste of time. this book is written in easy words it can be understood by any people who read these books.topics covered in this book are listviews, recycler view, navigational drawer, action bar, fragments, audio, and video player, how to use google maps API, card view, grid-layout. The author tried to explain in an easy way all these topics. but this doesn't go in deeper in android development like using JSON fetching, retrofit library. the author tried to explain with the project so that all topics are can try this book without any doubt. Buy Now.
