Best Books To Learn Android Application Development

Android is a linux based operating system and was built by Android Inc. which was later bought by Google in 2005. The best thing about Android is that it's open-source which means you can easily modify it the way you like without worrying about Google suing you.

Learning Android Application Development is a very exciting and interesting journey. I would recommend everyone who uses computer to learn android because of two reasons. First one being that you can design your own apps and use it in your smartphone or tablet. Second, if your app is unique and interesting, you can put that in Google Play store and earn lots of money

Here is a interesting fact for you : Angry Birds is now a brand worth $5.5 billion and the creators of Temple Run are earning in millions. If they can do it, why can't you?
