Creating Android layouts that look good can be challenging. Once you've spent hours tweaking them to suit multiple devices, you often won't want to revisit them. However, bulky, nested layouts can be tremendously inefficient. Luckily, there's a tool available in the Android SDK that can help optimize your project layouts to decrease memory usage and improve performance.

Optimization is always tricky business. Having good, well behaved, high performance code is great. But at what cost? You never want to prematurely optimize or spend too much time on code that may only run once or is in a short-lived feature. On the flip-side, if your application is unresponsive, takes up too much memory, or slows down the rest of the system users will notice and your application downloads will likely suffer.
Optimizing your layouts fairly early in the development process is one easy way to save memory and increase performance. Some changes will be negligible, others may be quite noticeable. The Android SDK comes with a tool to automatically analyze your layouts and find potential areas of unnecessary layout complexity.
