    Oh, I’m sorry. I didn’t realize you already looked at those. Those should go into a Window Size file. You can call it whatever, I called mine WindowSize and WindowUtil. These files should be written once and used on all your apps. So design them with that in mind. You can call them in your main Activity file or anywhere else you need it. Here is a good example of using the code in the documentation inside a news info App. This is their main activity file [theirs is written in kotlin, but can be translated into Java] And here is their window size class files -- You should also go into your manifest file and put - android:resizeableActivity="true" or false [depends on what you want resized] In the application or activity section depending on isolation of activity or not.. And here is a YT video with good points - always code for device unknown. That way it wouldn’t matter the screen size, resolution, hardware config. Ext. -- It doesn't give much on syntax usage, but good insight info. Build apps for foldable, multi-display, and large-screen devices (Google I/O'19) Considering you are just starting out and getting the hang of things. I would look at all their files in the App source code above and see how the classes and functions are being used. Download the source files and tear it apart. The best way of learning any coding language is looking at code and playing with it then going back to the documentation to further understand it. I hope this helps. Good luck.

    There is also a similar framework for Android called Jetpack Compose which I will look into next. I have high hopes that these will be the future of native development.

    Java still works for 99% of things, but Google officially declared Android development as "Kotlin-first" back in 2019 and it's definitely where the new/latest stuff happens. For example: Compose is Android's new declarative UI framework (similar to React) and it's Kotlin-only.

    The "new" way: Compose does everything in code via composable functions. You mentioned your background is in web development; Compose is very much like React for Android UI. It only recently reached version 1.0 so resources can be sparse, but it is very much the "future" of UI on Android.
  • Requesting best practices to remove lag on Jetpack compose Sectioned LazyColumn

    One thing I noticed is that running on real device the UI is somewhat less laggy. I found JetNews Android Sample App which contained the use case similar to mine. I will try to make changes as per it specially moving the selection and deletion logic to suspend function as done in the example and let's see whether there will be any performance improvements.

    Check out some demo apps with Jetpack Compose You could work on building them and launching them. You could also work on editing the code and adding/changing features. You should probably pair this with some intro to kotlin tutorials.
