What layout manager to use

Hello everyone, as I'm wrapping up the development of my app, I realized that the way in which I developed my app makes it ony look right on Bold sized screens. My footer is set to use all height, but what I really want is for it to "stick" to the bottom of the screen and allow the section between the header and footer to grow to fit the phone's screen.


Here's an example illustration what I'd like to accomplish (arrow indicates there area I would like to expand). Will accomplishing this require that I write my own layout manager, or is there already one that I could use for this?
