Building Flexible and Scalable Android Apps with MVVM: Best Practices and Tips

🎯 Model View Controller (MVC)

The Model-View-Controller (MVC) architecture has been a popular choice for Android app development in the past. In this architecture, the view represents the user interface, the model encapsulates the data and business logic, and the controller acts as an intermediary between the view and the model.

However, MVC has certain drawbacks. One of the main challenges is that the view and the controller are tightly coupled, making it difficult to add new functionalities without modifying the existing code. This often leads to large view classes with thousands of lines of code, making code maintenance and understanding a complex task. Additionally, updating the view after performing business logic requires manual intervention, which can be error-prone.
