Understanding fragments

Understanding fragments: Building Flexible Android Apps with the Fragments API with Java
Understanding fragments: Building Flexible Android Apps with the Fragments API with Java

The Fragments API was added to Android in Android 3, Honeycomb. Android 3 was the first version of Android that was specifically designed for use on tablets. You won't find many tablets in users’ hands today that use Android 3; it was completely replaced by Android 4, which supports both tablets and cell phones. The core Fragments API is designed then for Android 4 and later, and can only be used on those devices that support those versions of the operating system. But there is a version of the Fragments API, called the support version, that's included in a support library. Most of the time it’s best to use that version to make your app as broadly useable as possible.
