Native Mobile Development: A Cross-Reference for IOS and Android Native Programming
Lewis, Shaun, Dunn, Mike
Get professionally developed and curated recipes for 20 of the most common tasks for functionality in modern native iOS and Android applications. With this practical book, developers can use an easily translatable set of instructions for completing routine functionality in both platforms in a way that follows best practices.
Authors Shaun Lewis and Mike Dunn provide step-by-step direction to help you create a fully-functional application using modern practices and designs that will utilize those tasks. The development of the apps will be laid out side-by-side, so that the friction usually involved in switching between platforms while developing is greatly reduced. By the end of this book, you'll have developed apps for both iOS and Android with exactly the same core features, as well as some additional features that are relevant and unique to each app's operating system.
