Before You Start
In late 2011 as I got more into Android development, I tried to look for a book that I hoped would take my development to the next level. I’d already completed a couple of apps and wanted to know what everyone else was doing that I might have missed. Sure, there was a wealth of Android documentation from Google, but the Android docs had some odd recommendations; they suggest using jUnit3 for my unit testing, which felt like going backwards. I already knew there were existing jUnit4 testing frameworks for Android, such as Roboelectric, so maybe there were other cool things out there that I’d missed that I simply didn’t know about that could really help me write better code.
