Is there a reasonable way to design a web app that will look good across different Android devices?

I think it's mostly an issue of how to handle different screen sizes and aspect ratios, and I'm wondering what kind of support is available.

Thanks,
Burk

Good question!
Web based mobile application were supposed to be cross platform so covering different devices running same platform should NOT be a problem, hopefully.

Hey Burk,

Going with a web UI framework is generally a good start, and even though in the book we start with the "roll your own" approach to teach the fundamentals we also cover quite a few frameworks in Chapter 12 (see http://www.coderanch.com/t/524920/Android/Mobile/Javascript-frameworks-have-good-performance).

In terms of screen sizes and aspect ratios you can handle these things with CSS3 media queries and/or a good fluid HTML design.

Cheers,
Damon.
