    Such free codes and guidelines will certainly supply the necessary additional energy to the mobile apps and games developers who have been constantly striving for excellence. Off course, we should not ignore the fact that the developers with the right apps and games are rightly valued by several companies like admob, revmob, appnext and many others

    I bought and got as a gift some books about Android programming, mos of them cover IDE and other not so important things, but when you plan to make some application they lack of information! I wasted my money! So, online courses are best way to teach anyone IMO
