I am working on porting an iPhone application in Android in which the reference application has a carousel on the main screen allowing user to scroll through different pages and navigate from there. AFAIK, Android does not have a carousel widget.

What is the best/simpler way to achieve this effect/ create a similar widget in Android?

Wish I knew how to conjure object with OpenGL magic. I would have created a cyclinder and pasted an image!

Hey Monu,

You could possibly do this using the web apps approach if you wanted to give it a try. The Sencha Touch framework does come with a carousel UI element that works really well for both android and iPhone.

You can check it out in the Sencha Touch Kitchen Sink Demo (under User Interface > Carousel).

Cheers,
Damon.
