How to make app look good on all devices? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have finished with the functionality of my app its just that i want it too look good on all devices i have used a grid view but it's not as reliable as it can be since if the device is on a smaller device 10* is different on a larger device as controls can start to see cut off. 

    Here is the process that i am thinking of taking:

    • Check wether the user if using a windows phone or an other device
    • Change the size of the controls depending on the width of the device

    The only problem i have is how would i find out if the user is using a windows phone?

    Am i using the best technique to make my app 'responsive' if not are there any other solutions you can other?

  • best approach is to look at the shape of the app and available size. You can use visual states for this. You can do this for phone and windows too.
