Welcome to the second tutorial out of three in the series of how to make your own 3D list view implementation for an Android application. In this tutorial we continue to develop the quite basic list created in part one of the tutorial into a list with 3D look and feel. At the end of this article we will have something that looks a bit more interesting than the standard list.
Welcome to the second part of the Android tutorial on how to make your own zoom control like the one used in Sony Ericsson X10 Mini in the Camera and Album applications. Click here to read the first part of the tutorial.
Don’t forget to go to Android Market and download Sony Ericsson Tutorials, the app that collects all sample apps in this and other Sony Ericsson tutorials.
This is the first tutorial in a series of three on how to make a cool looking list in an android application. My name is Anders Ericson and I have been working with user interface (UI), for example the one in the Timescape™ application that you can find in the Xperia™ X10 mini and Xperia X10™ mini pro. Since the UI is one of the first things users will notice when they try an application the first time I wanted to create a tutorial that allow any android developer to create their own custom list view, similar to the one in Timescape™, with 3D feel and dynamics.
In this first part of the tutorial we will create a basic list and in the two following parts more and more functionality and features will be added. I will also show you how you can use the basic structure of the list and change it into whatever works best for your app. Below is a link to the source code of part 1, prepared for you to set up your own project in e.g. Eclipse. Don’t forget to download the Sony Ericsson Tutorials application from Android Market where you can try the sample apps from each step of the tutorial. I look forward to see your comments and questions.
Welcome to this first Android tutorial on how to make your own one finger zoom control like the one found in the Camera and Album applications in the Sony Ericsson X10 Mini. The Tutorial is divided into four parts, each part adding new features.
