I have read most of the second edition of Head First Android Development (in Chapter 12).  I am looking to build an App that allows users to play a card game.  I have not seen anything yet that would allow the end user to move images around the screen.  
In my case, I would like to create a bridge puzzle App, so I want to use a standard deck of cards, but I have seen other Apps use non-standard decks, such as Star Realms.

Where can I look for this information?  Is towards the end of the Head First Book? Is a keyword that I need to search for?

Thanks,

Hello Ted,

We don't cover it in the book, but this kind of thing is much easier to do in Jetpack Compose using the animation APIs:
