In a virtual sea of Android apps, the key to survival in the form of user engagement, referrals, and purchases is simple: performance and perceived speed. But building a high performance app isn’t easy in a fast-paced and rapidly changing environment where new devices, platforms, and development tools are announced almost daily. This practical guide provides tools and tips that will help you take app performance to a new level.
Learn how to take a holistic approach to performance during development, rather than wait until your product has launched. Ideal for beginners to advanced Android developers, this book shows you the tools and techniques for testing performance as you build your app.
