Pro Android 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."
Develop graphically sophisticated apps and games today!
The smart phone app market is progressively growing, and there is new market gap to fill that requires more graphically sophisticated applications and games. Game and Graphics Programming for iOS and Android with OpenGL ES 2.0 quickly gets you up to speed on understanding how powerful OpenGL ES 2.0 technology is in creating apps and games for amusement and effectiveness. Leading you through the development of a real-world mobile app with live code, this text lets you work with all the best features and tools that Open GL ES 2.
Among all the things that mobile phones are and have become, one definite trend is the increase in the media production and consumption capabilities they offer. This trend began with the advent of the camera phone in the late 1990s, and over the last few years has dramatically taken off with the surging popularity of smart phones. In terms of media capabilities, today’s mobile handsets are simultaneously cameras, photo albums, camcorders, movie players, music players, dictation machines, and potentially much more....
This Xcode 4 Edition of iPhone iOS 4 Development Essentials contains 43 chapters of in-depth information on the development of apps for the iPhone fully updated for use with Xcode version 4.
Beginning with the basics, this book provides an overview of the iPhone hardware and the architecture of both iOS 4 and the iOS SDK. An introduction to programming in Objective-C is provided followed by an in-depth look at the architecture of iPhone applications and the design of user interfaces.
There is a revolution happening in the technology industry. Touchscreen interfaces,
combined with low-cost and ubiquitous smartphones, have created a perfect storm
for disruptive innovation. Android is at the forefront of this change, bringing a free
and open-source platform on which developers can create the next generation of
applications. With free development tools and an open market, anyone can develop
applications that reach a worldwide market. But why choose to develop for Android?
Welcome to Practical C# Charts and Graphics. This book is intended for C# .NET developers
who want to add professional graphics and charts to their applications. My hope is to write the
ultimate C# chart and graphics programming guide that would be useful to C# application
programmers of all skill levels.
We’ve all heard the saying “a picture’s worth a thousand words”. Creating charts and graphics
plays a very important role in every Windows application.
Mathematics in Action: Algebraic, Graphical, and Trigonometric Problem Solving, Fourth
Edition, is intended to help college mathematics students gain mathematical literacy in the
real world and simultaneously help them build a solid foundation for future study in mathematics
and other disciplines.
Our team of fourteen faculty, primarily from the State University of New York and the City
University of New York systems, used the AMATYC Crossroads standards to develop this threebook
series to serve a very large population of college students at the pre-precalculus level.
Gaming on the move has become very popular over recent years. With the arrival of the Nintendo Gameboy, people realized that they could take their games with them, and as technology has become more sophisticated these games have grown too, encompassing complex game mechanics, advanced 2D and 3D graphics, and engrossing stories and game worlds that the player can literally become lost within
In today’s world of desktop applications there is a great amount of incentive to be able to develop applications that can run in more than one environment. Currently there are a handful of options available for cross platform frameworks to develop desktop applications in Python. wxPython is one such cross- platform GUI toolkit for the Python programming language. It allows Python programmers to create programs with a complete, highly functional graphical user interface, simply and easily. wxPython code style has changed quite a bit over the years, and gotten much more Pythonic.
What does it take to build an iPhone app with stunning 3D graphics? This book will show you how to apply OpenGL graphics programming techniques to any device running the iPhone OS — including the iPad and iPod Touch — with no iPhone development or 3D graphics experience required. iPhone 3D Programming provides clear step-by-step instructions, as well as lots of practical advice, for using the iPhone SDK and OpenGL.

Jazz up your iPhone and iPad apps with some slick graphics and animation—and keep users from looking elsewhere. This short and concise book shows developers with even little Cocoa programming experience how to create impressive graphics and animation effects with relatively easy coding. Learn how to incorporate smooth animations and draw images in your apps to achieve the classy look you want.
Pixel Shaders are one of the more powerful graphic tools available for XAML programmers.
I first encountered them in the Windows Presentation Foundation 3.5 SP1 release
and was completely smitten. It didn’t take long to learn that I could create custom
shaders, commonly called Effects in WPF, and add them to my projects. Excited by the
prospect, I started my research and soon learned that shaders are written in a language
called High Level Shader Language (HLSL). I like programming challenges and learning
new technologies, so I set off to learn more about custom shaders.

It seems an obvious question to ask at the beginning of an HLSL and shader book; what
exactly is a shader? It’s a small program or algorithm written explicitly to run on a
computer Graphics Processing Unit (GPU). It provides a way for developers to extend
the rendering capabilities of the GPU. Any program that works closely with graphics will
benefit from using shaders. The video game industry spins off custom shaders by the
thousands, they are as vital to game projects as business entity classes are to line of
