    Flexbox for Android

    I would highly recommend using sp for text sizes as users can change the font size in their settings. So if someone has bad vision and large text, your app would be disregarding scaling the text up. This does make it more difficult to create layouts that work for all text sizes, but there are patterns such as a constraint layout flow or flex box which will make everything in one row if the content fits our stack on top of each other if it doesn't fit in a single row.
