Android Design Guidelines Updated for Settings, App Navigation


Google’s added a couple new tidbits to the Android Design Guidelines website to help developers design and develop their apps with best practices in mind for Android 4.0. New content includes tips on how to setup your settings and preferences menu, as well as how you should allow users to navigate your OS from launching it via a widget on the homescreen, within your app or via notifications. Users can read through this content if they’re interested, but this one’s mainly for the developers. Be sure to read through and adapt your practices to make a better Android experience for all! Head here and here to get started. [via Google+]

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. I wonder how much of this was spawned from stupid iPhone users who had nothing better than rag on Android because “there’s too many settings,” or “takes too many steps to change a setting,” or something along those lines.  Personally, I set up my settings once, not continually.  Seems like a lot of fuss over something small, especially when we all brag about having the ability to customize our phones.

  2. As a developer, I really appreciate these articles. I was looking for a place to find information like this and the fact that it coincides with my beloved android site for general news makes it all the better! :)
