[Q] Multipule screen size
Hi guys, I hope that this is in the right place.
So I have been making an app for a few weeks (First one) and I had no idea that android apps was not responsive to screen size. OK not so bad. I have come from HTML CSS and PhP so that type of thing is a constant battle!
I did some digging and found out a few things, I found this sizing.
xhdpi: 720px by 1280px
large-hdpi: 640px by 960px
hdpi: 480px by 640px
mdpi: 320px by 480px
ldpi: 240px by 320px
When I first started creating the app I stuck all of the images in the mdpi folder! and well that did not work. So following the guide I rezied all of the images put them in those folders to the right size ect I also created all of the same layout folders.
not forgetting to add what was needed to the manifest
Before I did this things would move around not the images but the text would jump around on smaller or larger phone sizes looking nothing like what it does in Eclipse. So after adding all the new folder ect I loaded up the emulator and got up a small phone, and it looked great, I emailed the app to myself to test on my phone again, and things are all out of place (The text) The images are in odd shapes too.
on what I would call normal phone sizes the text is still moving around and is not going into the positions that I set them to.
I do hope this makes sense! I a little tied!
Thanks guys, hope to get this issue sorted very soon
