How adapt an app for multiple screen resolutions?

I have an Android app design for tablets. I would like to fit well in different screen resolutions. What is the best way to do it?

I'm getting this message: 'sw720dp' is not a best match for any device/locale combination. Displaying it with ', , Locale Language __Region _, Left To Right, sw800dp, w800dp, h1280dp, Extra Large Screen, Long screen aspect ratio, Portrait Orientation, Normal, Day time, Medium Density, Finger-based touchscreen, Soft keyboard, No keyboard, Hidden navigation, No navigation, Screen resolution 1280x800, API Level 17' which is compatible, but will actually be displayed with another more specific version of the layout.

Thanks in advance
