The 5th Android Police book giveaway is now over, and we've picked the winners. A copy of Developing Android Applications with Adobe AIR will be shipped to each of the following readers, selected by O'Reilly and Android Police, who answered this question:
Why do you think developers should build their apps with Adobe AIR instead of using a conventional approach?
I've long thought AIR made sense as a mobile development platform due to its ease of development and cross-platform potential.
By all accounts, the Amazon Kindle Fire is the best-selling Android tablet of all time.Between Amazon's quality-not-quantity approach to their App Store and one-tablet-to-rule-them-all line-up, and you've got a recipe for quality control more akin to Apple than Google. But that also means developing for the Fire and the App Store is a slightly different experience from start to finish - so if you're planning an app specifically for the Fire... Read More
To help aspiring Android developers get off the ground and develop our next dream app, Android Police has partnered with O'Reilly Media, one of the largest technical book publishers, to give away a multitude of Android books to our readers. Each week or so for the next few months, we'll be giving away a different O'Reilly Android book, asking for nothing but a minute of your time in return.
Developing Android Applications with Flex 4.5
This time around, we're giving away Rich Tretola's Developing Android Applications with Flex 4.5, which was published by O'Reilly just last month (May 2011). Read More
Our second, and last, giveaway for today is a little more literary than the offerings we've had so far, and really, is pointed more towards those who are looking to get into Android programming and development. So, we do ask that you only enter this contest if you actually want the book, because there aren't many Android giveaways out there aimed at the developer crowd. And don't worry devs, this isn't the only InformIT title we'll be offering as part of our Mega-Holiday Giveaway - it's just the first. Read More
The 7th Android Police book giveaway is now over, and we've picked the winners. A copy of Android 3.0 Application Development Cookbook will be shipped to each of the following readers who answered this question, as selected by Packt and Android Police:
What interests you the most about this book?
What this book feels like to me is a great opportunity to learn about development the right way as opposed to searching 5 different forum sites just to get sent to 10 different webpages and have you give your email for more assistance that gets you 100 pieces of junk mail every day when all I wanted to know was where to start reading.
Are you an Android developer who's curious about getting started with the NDK? Or maybe you'd just like to see what C/C++ can do as opposed to Java. Or maybe... there's another reason. I dunno. What I do know, however, is that Packt Publishing's Android Native Development Kit Cookbook ($25/$50) probably has the answer you're looking for.
This contest is now over.
The final results are listed below. If you've won, you will be contacted in the near future.
If you've been following Android Police, you've probably seen the Android programming book giveaway series that we're doing together with O'Reilly Media (#1, #2, #3). It's time to announce the winners of the 3rd giveaway, selected by the joint AP/O'Reilly panel, who will receive a brand new copy of Developing Android Applications with Flex 4.5.
Again, the question was:
Tell everyone why they should use Flex for developing Android apps as opposed to the conventional approach.

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).
