Keep up with the fashion:  Using Styles and Themes in your apps

styleAndThems icon

Styles specify the look and feel of individual views, like text views and buttons.

Styles help you to:

  • have a consistent look and feel across your app
  • use less code because you define the style once and then use it over and over
  • easily update the look and feel of your app. All the styling code is in one place. Just edit the style and it will change the look and feel of all the views using that style

Themes are simply Styles applied to an app or to individual activities.
