To follow along with this book, you’ll need the following:
- Android Studio 3.3.2, available at https://developer.android.com/studio/index.html. This is the environment in which you’ll develop the apps in this book.
If you haven’t installed the latest versions of Android Studio, be sure to do that before continuing on with the book.
Also, the sample app described in this book makes use of a third party API by the Movie DB to search and retrieve movie information. In order to use the search API, you must first get access to an API key from the Movie DB. To get your API own key, sign up for an account at www.themoviedb.org. Detailed steps will be given in the first chapter of the book.
