Bring your Android apps into the modern era. Learn how to use the most popular UI elements, including custom layouts, custom views, side navigation drawers, and RecyclerView.
- [Albert] Hi, I'm Albert Lo. I have been developing for the Android platform natively for over five years. In this course, I will introduce you to some of the most popular UI Controls available for Android developers while we create a Google Photos app together. We will start by learning about the side navigation drawer and how to customize it. Next, we will learn about how to structure the RecyclerView to easily support multiple view types. We will explore custom views, custom layouts, custom layout attributes, ViewHolders, and create models for our RecyclerViews.
Lastly, we'll learn about how to apply the different UI Controls to display a grid of photos onto a screen. I'm excited to share these concepts with you here, because I have used them myself in developing several real-world apps.
