Are you an Android application developer?

I'm looking to talk to a couple app devs who have used the Android guidelines to make apps that scale for different sized screens and/or have multiple layouts for device types.

If this sounds like you, and you have time to answer a question or two (and get your app featured as "doing it right" on a very popular Android blog), email me please :)

Jerry, you should get in touch with +Gina Trapani
She is a co-host on This Week in Google and is an android developer. I have heard her discuss the nuances of programming for Android screen sizes. She is pretty darn brilliant and I bet very willing to help.
 
+Jerry Hildenbrand there are several ways to do this... and it depends entirely on what type of app... for instance if it were a webview you could essentially do it in CSS on the site, or do it simply with code by doing something to the effect of this :
      WebView mWebView = (WebView) findViewById(R.id.web_view) ;
      mWebView.getSettings().setBuiltInZoomControls(true);      
      mWebView.getSettings().setUseWideViewPort(true);
      mWebView.setInitialScale(30);      
      mWebView.loadUrl("http://www.yoursite.com");

and then if you add something like this:

android:widgetCategory="keyguard|home_screen"

to your XML your app will be accessible on the lockscreen
