More Material Design with Topeka for Android

#Materialdesign is a new system for visual, interaction and motion design. We originally launched the Topeka web app as an Open Source example of material design on the web.

Today, we’re publishing a new material design example: the Android version of Topeka. It demonstrates that the same branding and material design principles can be used to create a consistent experience across platforms.

Scanning…

I'm really excited to see the new fingerprint API⁰ in Android M so made this little exploration demonstrating how you might prompt for a fingerprint and then show success or failure.  I'm using a couple of neat tricks provided by AnimatedVectorDrawable¹:

● Morph the paths of parts of the fingerprint to create the tick/cross.
● Use a copy of the fingerprint and a moving clip-path to create the scanning effect.

There are quite a few moving parts but you can find the code here:

I am super proud to be a Googler. My background isn't normal compared to the rest of my colleagues-not by a long shot. But I am convinced that Google wants to give everyone a fair shot, no matter where they're from or what they look like.

What if we worked together to create a more accessible world for all?

Today we’re announcing $20 million in grant funding through the Google Impact Challenge: Disabilities. We’re challenging the thinkers, the doers, the builders to create technologies that can make a difference to the one billion people around the world living with a disability.

Together, let’s ask the right questions, find new answers, and build a better world, faster. Join us: http://get.google.com/disabilitiesimpactchallenge/

Why ‘#mobile first’ may already be outdated. What matters is screens, not devices

For a number of years now, we’ve all been hit over the head time and again with “mobile first” and “mobile only”.

But if “mobile” is our future, why are almost all the most successful mobile driven businesses building web apps designed for larger screens?
All these mobile businesses (Uber, Flipboard, Instagram, Postmates, Waze) have recently built web apps for use on large screens.

Even the messaging apps are building web apps for large screen including Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp.

Screens, not devices

What matters is screens, not devices.
So if what matters is screens not devices, then the idea of a “mobile only” business may in fact be a small niche of consumer businesses.
As most of these disruptive mobile businesses mature, they realise they need to serve their users when they are in front of larger screens as well as smaller ones.
Mobile screens may still be their most important and dominant channel, but it is not their only one.
Also consider that other large screens, such as TVs.

To get a better sense of this, think about how most people go about their day, and the primary screen they access.

How do we design for the future?

When designing a digital product you should always understand that a GUI is a medium to deliver the service and not the service itself.
Designing a product is not a matter of user experience optimisation but rather a matter of providing a real solution to a real problem.

The challenge of designing for the future is that as the amount of available technologies increase, so will the odds of creating mediocre products.

In the near future we will have smart phones, smart accessories, smart cars and smart houses.
So you will NEED a way to consider solutions that may be suitable for any of those platforms instead of you instinctively making that decision.
