The factory pattern is a very basic pattern used in many places, including Android development, also with Kotlin. In fact, many types in Android frameworks are instantiated with factory methods, and you may actually have written factory methods or classes already yourself without knowing it.

Yea I know I have used it in other languages and frameworks. It is referred to in Effective Java as well. The specifics of Android are new to me. I am currently taking the Google course on it with hopes of gaining the certification at the end of the year! Also developing an app on the side using Jetpack Compose concepts with hopes to do a KMP back end and eventual SwiftUI front end for an iOS version. Thanks again for your tips! Shot you a follow to see the other interesting tid bits you post!

So far I like it much better than using XML and the Views concept of old.
