App Developers

Anyone know of any good Android or Mobile app development books? I'm just starting to brush up on Java and made a small app yesterday, and am thinking about pursuing this a bit. The Java books I have are extremely old, and while there's tons of resources online...I like to have a physical reference book.

I know I could search Amazon, but was wondering if anybody had any experience with anything.

Edit: My Java skill is very beginners. However, being proficient in other languages...I should be extremely comfortable in about a week at the rate I'm going right now.

Good for starters.

Some online training.

If you want books, Sams' and OReilly's are good.

For a trial app, you can also use Appinventor.

Stackoverflow is also a great resource.

@Sajan - Look at PhoneGap. You can design the app in HTML5 and package it as a native app. The PhoneGap libraries even give you native access to most of the Android APIs.

As an added bonus, you can re-package the app for almost every mobile platform including iOS
