This book's objective is to impart the knowledge required to create Android-based applications utilizing the Android Studio Integrated Development Environment (IDE), the Android Software Development Kit (SDK), and the Kotlin programming language. It has been fully updated for Android Studio 3. x.

There are 88 comprehensive chapters and 45 sample projects in this book (including the source code). This particular copy of the book is the Kotlin edition. Search for Android Studio Development Essentials - Java Edition if you want the Java version.

This book starts with the fundamentals, laying out the procedures for creating an Android development and testing environment. It then introduces Kotlin programming, covering data types, flow control, functions, lambdas, and object-oriented programming. Included is a summary of Android Studio, covering topics like 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.

The handling of touch screens, gesture detection, camera access, and the playing and recording of both video and audio are also discussed, along with more complex issues like database administration, content providers, and intentions. Additionally covered in this version are printing, transitions, and cloud-based file storage. The principles of material design, including as the utilization of floating action buttons, Snack bars, tabbed interfaces, card views, navigation drawers, and collapsing toolbars, are also explored in detail.

The book offers information on fundamental Android development approaches as well as Google Play-specific subjects, such as how to use the Google Maps Android API to construct maps and submit apps to the Google Play Developer Console. The Layout Editor, the ConstraintLayout and ConstraintSet classes, constraint chains and barriers, direct reply notifications, and multi-window support are just a few of the other important features of Android Studio 3 and Android 8 that are explored in detail. Additionally, chapters discuss sophisticated aspects of Android Studio like Gradle build setup, Instant Apps, App Links, and the Android Studio Profiler.
