Default How do developers work with different screen sizes ?


Recently I started to learn Android Development and I am stuck on how to change the layout according to the screen size ?

My thoughts are:

1. Do devs. create different screens for different sizes ?
2. Do devs. create different versions of same app. for different sizes ?
3. Android/Java takes care of the size itself and dev. has nothing to do about it ?

Please tell me, my learning curve is really stuck on this part.

I suggest reading this section on the Android developer's site: Supporting Multiple Screens | Android Developers
It covers multiple screens.
