Submitted by Manu Jemini, on January 20, 2018

Lots of apps are using Full Screen Activity to have an attractive screen to show slides etc. There is a simple way to create this type of activity in the android studio.

To Implement Full Screen Activity you need to create or open an android studio project, give it a name and press Next to configuration panel.

After configuration, you just need to choose Full screen Activity and again press next. In the last choose the name for the name of your activity and press FINISH.

Step 1) Now you have to give a name to your application which is by default My_Application. For most of the time you should leave it as it is.

Step 2) Now you will be asked about some other configuration for your project, which is common for any type of activity. Choose your targeted SDK version and hit Next.

This is the default output for the application. You can change it like another activity. Just edit the code of the layout file.
