HASH(0x9aecf15c) out of 5 stars Introductory Guide with Good Hyperlink Reference Leads April 17 2014
By Tinfoot Tall - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
If taken as an introductory guide and initial reference lead, MOBILE DEVELOPER'S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY is a currently updated, relevant, practical place to start. Each chapter is clearly written in logical order with internal footnoted hyperlinks to appropiate reference sources at the end of each chapter. In no way comprehensive, one should take MOBILE DEVELOPER'S GUIDE as an overview of OS and each of their respective Market Share, Available Design Elements, Development Tools, and other critical considerations such as monetization and security. In this respect it is a "guide to the galaxy" by showing the reader where to possibly go next in the quest to make the next Killer App.

HASH(0x9aecf618) out of 5 stars Index, Page Numbers and Visual Studio Alternatives? July 14 2015
By Tomi Häsä - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
An index would be nice, so I can get an overall view of the book and move fast to the sections I'm interested in. Page or chapter numbers would be great, so I can refer to the section I'm writing about in my own document. For Windows Phone / Windows Mobile development this book mentions only Microsoft Visual Studio, but doesn't discuss about the different versions: which version is best for me. No Visual Studio alternatives are mentioned, but I'm interested in Eclipse and NetBeans as cheaper alternatives although I know there are free versions of Visual Studio also.
HASH(0x9aecf6e4) out of 5 stars A small book, very good as far as it goes May 20 2015

A little book with some very good information.

What I really liked about the book is that it discusses the larger question of requirements analysis and design. This isn't focused on just mobile development, so it is some text that could be used by any software developer in any kind of project.

As a small volume though, it doesn't contain as much detail about some of the mobile specific issues as I might have expected from the title. A very worthwhile investment of time ... well worth reading.
