Jetpack Compose 1.6 Essentials

This book is a comprehensive guide that teaches you how to create Android applications using Jetpack Compose 1.6, Android Studio, Material Design 3, and the Kotlin programming language, with detailed tutorials included throughout the book to help you put theory into practice.

The book is structured to build your knowledge from the ground up. It starts with the basics, guiding you through setting up an Android Studio development environment. It then introduces the Kotlin programming language, covering data types, operators, control flow, functions, lambdas, coroutines, and object-oriented programming.

You will learn the critical concepts of Jetpack Compose and Android project architecture, followed by a guided tour of Android Studio in Compose development mode.

In addition, the book covers data handling using state properties and essential user interface design concepts like layout managers, modifiers, navigation bars, and user interface navigation. You will also explore building reusable custom layout components, securing your apps with Biometric authentication, and integrating Google Maps.

Other topics covered include graphics drawing, user interface animation, and gesture handling. Chapters also cover view models, database storage, and custom theme creation. You will also learn how to generate extra revenue from your app using in-app billing.

Finally, the book explains how to package and upload a completed app for publication to the Google Play Store.
