Android app development beginners terms & definitions.

If you are learning android app development, there are a lot of words you need to get familiar with. These include technical terms, most used functions, important parts of android app structure etc.

Layout - A layout defines the design structure(using XML) for each part of the individual user interfaces in your app.

Activity - An android app is a collection of one or more different activities. Each activity provides the window in which the app draws its UI.

View - View is the base class for widgets, which are used to create interactive UI components like buttons, text fields, etc.

Constraint layout - With the help of ConstraintLayout, we can position our UI components in any sort of order whether it may be horizontal or vertical.

Linear layout - LinearLayout is a view group that aligns all children in a single direction, vertically or horizontally.

Fragments - A Fragment represents a reusable portion of an app’s UI.

Navigation components - The Navigation components are designed for apps that have one main activity with multiple fragment destinations.

View binding - View binding is a feature that allows you to more easily write code that interacts with views. Once view binding is enabled in a module, it generates a binding class for each XML layout file present in that module.

View models -The ViewModel class is designed to store and manage UI-related data in a lifecycle conscious way.

MainActivity - What is the main activity in an Android application? Typically, the main activity is the first activity screen to appear when the user launches the app.
