    Hey guys, I am new here so please be nice :)

    I am starting Android App development and need a good book with step-by-step tutorials. I have some experience with Java and C++, but I want to start from level 0 since I like "precision", so please recommend me couple of good books for android beginners! Thanks!

    Hi Xirurg ,

    I've tried a few different books so far.
    I wouldn't describe any of them as perfect or complete, so I needed more than one.

    Hello Android
    This is worth considering as an introductory text, and is the one I started with.
    I had an early edition, and it's probably more complete now.

    Hello, Android: Introducing Google's Mobile Development Platform Pragmatic Programmers: Amazon.co.uk: Ed Burnette: Books

    Android Wireless Application Development
    This is my current favourite.
    It might not be as introductory as Hello Android, but it covers more topics.
    It's aimed at people with some Java experience.
