Useful libraries for Android UI development

Posted on Updated on

Hi All..Here I would like to share some  important libraries round the corner that are far well useful for the application development. The following are few of them listed, but unfortunately I couldn’t sort it in a proper order. Anyways I will be making it more informative till then have a look

  • Universal image Loader: I placed this library on the top because this one has helped me lot and moreover the configuration is quite easy and additionally with less or in fact causing no app crash. This library could be useful while loading images in listview or gridview from a URL. Here’s the project website https://github.com/nostra13/Android-Universal-Image-Loader
  • Android amazing list-view: This library is used to create list-view with section headers. Android doesn’t have support for section headers in list-view. Hope this would be more useful while creating list-view with section headers in Android. Additionally item pagination is also available. More info https://code.google.com/p/android-amazing-listview/
  • Android wheel: Are you bored of using the standalone date picker in android but love to use date or time picker similar to iphone?? Here ends your search! Use this simple library to create pickers similar to Iphone. More information: https://code.google.com/p/android-wheel/
  • Actionbar-Sherlock: Create actionbar in all versions of android. Actionbars are available from API level 11 onwards. this library would be useful for creating action bar in apps with API level <11. For more info: https://github.com/JakeWharton/ActionBarSherlock

This is for the time being more will be updated soon. Keep visiting..!!
