Android Navigation
“In API level 11 (Android 3.0/Honeycomb) the recommended conventions for app navigation using the back key changed. The back key's behavior is local to the current task and does not capture navigation across different tasks. Navigating across tasks and easily reaching the previous task is accomplished through the "recents" UI, accessible through the software-provided Recents key on the navigation or system bar. On devices with the older hardware button configuration the recents UI can be accessed with a long press on the Home key.

When crossing from one task stack to another post-Android 3.0, the application should synthesize a back stack/history for the new task so that the user may navigate out of the new task and back to the Launcher by repeated presses of the back key. Back key presses should not navigate across task stacks.”

New post about how Android apps should look like. I gathered here some UI features that I see gaining traction and seem to define Android app look and feel.

Could be a bit hard to learn but since this is a show off video it might not be as "in your face when actually using it" but yes, it's probably a bit over the top. Not really "Scandinavian design" :-D

ICS UI Patterns #AndroidDev
Nice summary of UI patterns in Ice Cream Sandwich by +Chris Arvin (of BaconReader fame).

I would like to weigh in on dividers between items in the Action Bar (mentioned in +Min Ming Lo's original post). By default the system will place dividers between:
- Overflow button and others
- Text action item and another item where it would disambiguate which item the text belongs to.
- No divider between App title section and Actions

The system has no visibility of what's in an custom ActionView so doesn't attempt to do anything there. Leave it up to the system on Honeycomb+ and follow these rules if creating your own backward compatible AB and lets all have nice consistent UIs :)

Also the 'bottom action bar' is referred to as the 'Split Action bar' - consider it a single control.

Found via +Abhilash Kuduvalli's post: http://blog.c0up.com/android-ui-unification-in-ice-cream-sandwich
