Mobile (Android & iOS) Application Development Books
Mobile application development is the set of procedures and processes required in writing software for wireless computing devices or hand-held devices such as smartphones and many others. Web application development and mobile application development are almost similar but there’s one critical difference, which is, mobile apps are written specifically to take advantage of the specific feature of a mobile device. For example, there’s a gaming app designed to take the advantage of the iPhone's accelerometer or a health app written to take the advantage of a smartwatch's temperature sensor.
BPB Publications provides books on mobile app development which also covers android application development books.
The computer programming languages that support while creating a mobile application are:
Java: Perhaps one of the most popular programming languages one can experience. JAVA is also one of the most preferred languages by a lot of mobile app developers and also the most searched programming language on many search engines. The books on Java offer various concepts on Java and also go in-depth into many specific topics on Java.
Kotlin: Kotlin consider as an advanced version of Java by many developers; it is a versatile and interoperable programming language that easily overrules the shortcomings of Java. Kotlin is concise, clear, and a statistically typed programming language. Working the same as Java, but it has several features that are advanced and is making it a better option.
R: R is an open-source programming language that is particularly great for UIs’. The visual representation of data is important, and R can prove to be one of the best languages for creating beautiful animations, graphs, and multiple other UI elements in the mobile app.
PHP: PHP is an open-source programming language that is easy to learn, and making it perfect for newbies with exceptionally smooth integration. It is also recommended by most developers for mobile apps that require database access. It is also highly favored for content-heavy apps. The advantage of PHP is it loads quickly, even with a slow internet connection, and also has built-in security features.
Scratch: Developers can mix different media together in creative ways with the help of Scratch. It was created keeping as a virtual programming language keeping children as the target users. Scratch is great as an introductory language because it is easier to create interesting programs than in other languages. The best part is the skills you learn while learning Scratch are applicable when you wish to move on to basic other programming languages like Python and Java.
C++: Many consider this programming language to be their top choice in mobile app development. C++ is used for Android app development as well as the development of native apps. It is the best choice for those who are just starting to develop any mobile app as C++ has a built-in and massive pool of ready-to-use libraries for your app development.
C#: C#, or pronounced as ‘C-sharp’ is a general-purpose programming language that is fast, easy-to-use, and quick to deploy. It is a general-purpose programming language that is used in cross-platform, windows, and mobile app development. C# is simple, strong typing, imperative, and one of the most preferred programming languages by most developers.
