I know Android apps rely heavily on java and some books i looked at said that this isn't a book for app development just for websites. The 1st question is, should i bother buying past versions of development books so I can catch up? Or should I get books that focus on the latest 4.0 version?. 2nd question is which books or websites train you that was most helpful for you guys? I was considering buying Professional Android 4 Application Development by Reto Meirer and Pro Android 4 by satya komatineni dave maclean, because I know they tutor you for the latest version. I bought the Lynda videos for app development, but I didn't like it it was too broad.


I started with Learning Java for Android Development, and Beginning Android 4 Development from Apress and I'm making pretty good progress considering i only bought my device 5 days ago.
I've also been checking out some videos from here but mostly on an as needed kind of base List of Videos for Android Application Development

Hope this helps
