Mobile devices have evolved to focus on rich media
production and consumption. Developers of mobile
applications are able to create applications that allow people to play, capture, and share media
in a variety of new ways on mobile
devices. The popularity of Android
has soared in part because the platform offers developers a rich set of capabilities including access to media
capturing and playback functions.
Media provides concise and clear instruction on how to utilize the media
APIs made available through Android
to create dynamic apps. It takes you from a simple means to gain access to the camera to complex video capture and sharing examples. It also covers sound, graphics, painting, and more - everything you need to make your app come alive.
