Ok, I'm putting together my first Android app. I've been playing around for a few days, and think I'm starting to get the hang of things, but I have some questions.
The basic nature of the app is to show the user nine specific buttons, and then when the user presses one of them, it brings up a gallery view showing some images.
Here are my specific questions:
- For the layout of the buttons...Should I use a GridView or just lay buttons on the screen. I've been playing around with GridView, but it seems a lot heavier than I need. This app will always have the same nine buttons. No exceptions.
- How do I set a background image on the screen (underneath the buttons, as it were).
- How do I detect when the device is in "portrait" vs "landscape" orientation?
Thanks in advance!
