Heads up... You're reading this book for free, with parts of this chapter shown beyond this point as scrambled text.

Wow, we’ve taken a heck of a journey together! Throughout this book, you’ve jumped into a completely new framework and came out as an expert on Jetpack Compose. Even though it’s still in development, Jetpack Compose is a powerful new UI toolkit, and after reading the book you know how to use a wide variety of tools that Compose exposes.

You learned about Compose’s fundamental components and how they compare to the legacy UI toolkit in Android. Furthermore, you saw how easy it is to remember and handle the state in Compose, and how you can directly connect it to the rest of your app’s architecture. Finally, you explored many options when it comes to styling your app including dark and light themes, modifiers and even Material Design and animations.

Using this knowledge will let you build beautiful apps with ease, as well as reuse your code across different projects. But it’s not just that — writing UI code is so much fun in Jetpack Compose that you’ll constantly be looking for nice new things to build, or new components to style.

However, since Jetpack Compose is still in development, there are always new versions to explore and new features to master on the horizon. It’s impossible to teach everything there is to know about such an awesome framework, so we hope you’ll practice it on your own projects.

If you want to explore more content about Jetpack Compose, we recommend watching our Jetpack Compose course (, which builds another cool app and explores all of these concepts using different components. Also, be sure to check out Jetpack Compose Animations Tutorial: Getting Started ( to play around with more animations that you can build easily with Compose!
