Recently I updated my Ships, Captain, and Crew game, because of a comment from a friend. They wanted to know where to find the instructions on how to play the game.
Of course, I told them the instructions are on the “about” page. They looked and couldn’t find them. After looking at their phone, I realized that the screen, though large, was a lower resolution, and the information I wanted displayed was off of the bottom of the screen.
App making is a lot more tedious than I thought.
When you are unsure if information will be off of the screen, there are several options to choose from, like making everything smaller, or using constraint layouts, or even scroll views. I just wanted to leave a note for the wise to check that their information is properly being displayed on different devices. Just because it looked good on the Android emulator doesn’t mean that it actually displays on every one’s real screen.
Linux – keep it simple.
