Fragments are important aspect of building great user interfaces in Android. I’ve finally managed to learn them properly with a book titled Creating Dynamic UI with Android Fragments by Jim Wilson. With it we learn about fragments and their related concepts and how they are connected through building seemingly simple app of list of book titles and text which shows currently selected book’s description. Point of the book lies how layouts are constructed, how to create fragments, that are reusable no matter if user is holding mobile in portrait or landscape mode or smaller/larger screens and how they communicate with each other and parent activity.
Now my next goal in learning Android application development is creating shared view transitions so my apps can become little more fancier and impressive. 🙂 I have yet to find a resource that would truly enlighten me in this area. If you have a suggestion, please let me know in the comments below.
