In the last post we created a basic Android project using Android Studio templates. While it’s great that we have a fully functioning master/detail style app, it does look a bit bare. In this post, we’ll change this by styling our list view, incorporating (sort of) real data to feed our list. We’ll make a custom adapter to drive our list with custom layouts, and introduce testing into the mix to ensure that our app continues to perform as expected.
At the end of this post, this is how your pet list will look. I’ve made a few stylistic changes from the original mockups to allow the imagery to really fill the content area.
