Alright, so I'm designing my first Android app for the company I work at. Followed a bunch of tutorials, got our API working with java, all is great. The backend works 100% but the UI is the most absolutely God-awful thing I have ever had to work with.
I have a *very* specific layout I need to follow but everything acts like it all wants to be relative. I need everything to be absolutely positioned. If I use rules like 'gravity' and 'layout_gravity' they either simply don't work or do not behave as expected. All I want to do is just specify x and y values for views using this XML syntax, but I can't find any documentation anywhere specifying how to do this.
Can somebody please lend a hand? I'm so frustrated and I really want to give android an 100% chance, but I'm having such a hard time. It just doesn't seem to have the awesome support and documentation behind it that the iPhone has. I hope this forum can prove me wrong. =)
