With Honeycomb making headlines, it’s about time that Android developers start considering large-screen devices with their software offerings. Funky Android dev Al Sutton has put together a useful guide showing how you can create tablet and phone UIs in a single .APK.

That obviously makes distribution more straightforward, since there’s only one version of your app to worry about, and Sutton covers everything from telling the Android OS that your app is all-singing, all-dancing, to usability issues about screen orientations and sizes. It’s certainly worth a read if you’re a developer.


  1. “Large screen mobiles are very difficult to handle.”

    No they aren’t,install Spare Parts (free in the market) on a Galaxy Tab and in 10 seconds you’re done. The OS makers and the manufactures just want you to think that so you buy new phones.
