Android has always embraced different form factors. But given Googles latest hardware, a tablet and a foldable, it's more important than ever to make your app look great on large screens. How do you do that? Which tools and libraries are needed? What screen layout is best? This talk walks you through Jetpack WindowManager, a Jetpack library that provides all information your app needs to make the best of all screen sizes. And we'll look at Material Design Canonical Layouts, ready-to-use compositions that help layouts adapt for common use cases and screen sizes. On top of that, you'll learn about compose_adaptive_scaffold, a small open source library that minimizes your efforts for making your Compose apps become a first class citican on large screens
