SVG in Android

3 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

Hey all I was googling svg in android and it appears that it is not supported. I think this needs to be addressed. Wouldn't we get better performance from the devices if the artwork was in svg format?

Nope, svg and other vector graphics have many advantages. But speed is normally not one of them (especially for icons and small graphics). Performance is probably the biggest reason for using bitmaps. To draw vector graphics is normally quite expensive for the cpu.

Oh really? That seems odd considering the file size of small svgs... How much slowr is it?
