[Freebie Alert] Packt Is Giving Away Another Book: Android Database Programming, Today Only

A couple of days ago, we pointed out a free eBook giveaway from Packt Publishing that involved a copy of the Android NDK Game Development Cookbook.

Today's freebie is Android Database Programming by Jason Wei, first released in 2012. It's targeted at developers that already know something about database development, but focuses on building and optimizing a data-driven mobile app with SQLite and Google App Engine.

[Update: Winners] International Book Giveaway: Win One Of Ten Copies Of 'Professional NFC Application Development For Android' From Wrox And Android Police

For consumers, NFC is an extremely useful tool for making like easier. It can be used for everything from simple task automation to quick Bluetooth pairing and tap-to-pay transactions. For developers, it can be a way to bring new life to an application, create something different, or just simplify an existing offering. Of course, in order to incorporate any newly adopted technology into an application, the developer has to learn the ins and outs, as well as any limitations that could cause issues.

[Update: Winners!] International Book Giveaway: Win One Of Ten Copies Of 'Android User Interface Design' From Android Police And InformIT

Nothing can break a good app quicker than an ugly interface. Conversely, a subpar app can be thrown into the limelight thanks to a beautiful UI. The point is: we're all slightly vain and love to look at pretty things. If you're a developer, making your app visually appealing is absolutely clutch for success; if you're just not sure where to start, however, we've got a book that should be just what the doctor ordered: Android User Interface: Turning Ideas and Sketches into Beautifully Designed Apps ($25, Amazon).

And now's your chance to get one of ten copies for free.

Look, I'm going to cut right to the chase here: we've done a lot of book giveaways, and in every single case they were quality books written by undisputed experts on the topics. But the book we're giving away here... well, it's on a whole new level, because it's written by an insider: Reto Meier, Google's Android Developer Relations Tech Lead. Having been involved in Android development (from the inside, mind you) since the initial release in 2007, it's safe to say there are few people who know more about how best to develop for the OS than him.
