Android Application Development - Spicing up the UI

Class 2, Part 1. This video comes from Marakana's 5-Day Android Bootcamp Training Course that Marko Gargenta taught in San Jose, CA earlier this year.

In this 50-minute tutorial, Marko will pick up where he left off with in the last session, and show you how to spice up the Android UI by adding graphics, themes and colors.

After watching this tutorial, you should have a solid feel for how to enhance the Android UI and how to use Eclipse to make it happen.

Marko also talks about:

  • Toast notifications
  • Spicing up the Android UI: graphics, colors and resource files
  • Resources: folder structure and naming conventions
  • Drawables
  • Using Eclipse to edit and enhance the UI
  • Applying themes and styles to your UI
