Screens

Hello,

So, I understand I have to make my own screens and buttons to insert into the app. And, I understand that different devices need different sizes. I have no clue what sizes are needed, if I should input all of them in the app and let the device choose etc etc etc? Where to start to get more information about this?

For my first app I am starting with an android development as I only have my windows computer and android phone to work with.

Hi yeah this was a huge headache for me on my first Android app because I couldnt find much documentation online. There is an option on BT where you add the background where you can say fit to screen but in my case I couldnt use this because I had a round logo which was getting distored using fit to page so had to figure out my own sizes. I'll send you a Private Message with them on tomorrow as well as where I added them into android studio. if this can help great if not sorry.

Regards

Sherry

Search on YouTube for keywords such as buzztouch, from idea to finished app in one hour and so on. Invest a couple of days and the aha! moment will come.

Thanks Dusko and Sherry. I was figuring I would make my screen first an solid color, then on top make an picture of something, and mute it down. The top would be smaller than the solid color, so I can start with making several screens of various sizes the solid color, then it should be easy to superimpose the smaller image on top and not have it become distorted.

Will email you Sherry, didnt know I needed to do that.
