Fewer lines of code translates into code that’s easy to read and maintain, less bugs, and more time to focus on building unique app experiences.
Iterate quickly with live previews, full tooling support, and easier theming, with small components that are easy to test.
What developers are saying
See what developers like about using Jetpack Compose
“For developers who are building new apps, I would definitely recommend using Compose. Not only is it enjoyable... it sets your team up for success in the future.”
“Compose has helped us with engineering retention. In our developer surveys, our engineers tell us that Compose is one of the biggest improvements to our dev experience.”
“We rewrote the search experience using Compose in just a matter of weeks. It took 40% less time than anticipated to build the feature, and took less than half the time it took to build it on iOS.”
"Compose is clearly the future of Android development. It requires less code, and it's easier to understand and maintain."
“We’ve prioritized building sound technical foundations and empowering our engineers to do excellent work. Jetpack Compose enabled both of these goals and is a critical part of our technical strategy.”
“We noticed a massive improvement in our productivity. Our development speed increased up to 3X compared to our legacy codebase.”
“Compose increased our productivity dramatically. It’s much easier and faster to write a Composeable function than to create a custom view, and it’s also made it much easier to fulfill our designers’ requirements.”
"We rewrote the Character Shop feature in Compose. It was much faster to write it in Compose, and we reduced the amount of code by over 10%."
“It’s the same app with way less code. The rewritten app has about 355,000 fewer lines of code, which is about 69% less than what it had before.”
“Compose has been a boon for our team’s developer happiness, and a big step-up for code quality and health.”
“By using Compose, we can focus on things that are unique to Square and our UI infrastructure, rather than solving the broader issue of building a declarative UI framework.”
"The speed at which Compose allows us to put together a new feature means we can iterate more rapidly, providing a higher-quality experience for our customers faster than before."
