I’ll be at Adobe’s San Jose headquarters this week for the Adobe Education Leader Institute – and thought this will be a great time to run a little contest in promotion of my book! I’ll be giving away a couple copies of the eBook version through Packt.

The eBook version is great; I’ve been using this myself, as I go about my mobile work for quick reference and it’s been delightfully helpful. Very easy to do a quick text search or pull up the table on contents and so forth.

All you have to do to win a copy is visit and leave a comment here about a feature that interests you. Then, just link to your comment on Twitter – use the hashtag #FlashAndroidBook and be sure to follow me or it will not count!

The giveaway will run for a week and I’ll pick winners at random on Sunday the 31st! Spread the word!

Incidentally; for those interested in reviewing the book, contact Shaveer Irani (shaveeri – AT – with the subject line of “Flash Development for Android Cookbook – Review” and the publisher may just hook you up!

    The geolocation and accelerometer are of great interest to me as I am developing an app for both android and playbook. This book will be very useful. Thanks Joseph.

    It would be a good reference (300+ pages) to quickly look up step by step methods on creating Android apps. (Not that many would expound on setting up your dev environment with other IDEs) and tips on publishing to the marketplace.
