This guided lab will take you through the process of upgrading an existing Android application designed for phones into a hybrid phone+tablet application. You'll learn about designing layouts for multiple screen densities, using Fragments, implementing an Action Bar, and using the Android Support Package to maintain backwards compatibility with older phones.
