Two years ago today, the nav drawer officially became a thing for Android.

A few days ago, we investigated the new navigation drawer design present in updates to Google Earth and Google Shopper. The hope at the time was that this... by Ron Amadeo in News

And I continue thinking that is not the perfect solution for the "App navigation" problem. I guest nobody launch the "best and unique solution"

Navigation Drawer is awesome because let all the screen for content buuuut hide the sections. The users dont find/use that section because aren't in the screen

The iOS' bottom nav bar is good because you can see the sections buuuut forgive something more than 4 sections.

The new Google+ solution ... well I dont like so much

Perhaps the all twitter navigation, with 3 big sections in a ViewPager with important sections in the toolbar with icons. It worked very well but is a solution for twitter, not for general apps

+Liam Spradlin​ Thanks for letting me know sir. Though I believe those mockups were truly appealing including the color picker feature (from album art) in the music player.

I was wondering what things might be like if the toolbar were actually under the main content, and that led me to this weird nav exploration. It was a fun interaction to animate, even if the work revealed plenty of problems. (That's what explorations are for!)

This model could be beneficial in that a shadow under the main sheet suggests potential for movement, and the motion when scrolling down is more logical than having an overlaid toolbar scroll away. Additionally it positions navigation destinations away from all the main content. The nav drawer does this too, but with a sheet that overlays everything. Finally, it opens up swipe-from-edge gestures for the left side of the screen.

Drawbacks are that this would limit the effective area for a swipe-to-refresh motion. It could either happen only from the toolbar, or anywhere except the toolbar. Wherever the refresh motion doesn't work would be where the slide-down-to-navigate motion does. So that's not ideal. Additionally, this is totally not familiar to anyone anywhere expecting a left-side nav drawer.

I love this style. I hate swipes as typically sub-level/child content (like slideshows and galleries) are difficult to swipe without unintentionally swiping the wrong page element.

Also, while demoing different apps, with nav-swipes from the sides, I have found some users have no idea that option exists.

Does this playlist actually "play" for anyone? Every time I hit the play button, I get signed out...
Edit: ok, looks like this is an issue with the Play Music extension for Chrome (the mini player).

This is another one of those little touches we've added to Nova that I'm really excited about. I've been loving this animation for a while and now I can finally share it!

This absolutely blows my mind. We've covered it in the past(1) but the +Google Play Books store is still infested with scam books(2) promising cracked apps (yes including paid apps and Google apps), delivering malware and phishing scams. Tipster Jorim brought this to mind for me again today.

Without knowing the full context of what's going on at Google I can't really make any statements on how this has been allowed to continue, but I can say it's a serious issue and I'm really surprised - given Google's recent penchant for removing apps - it's gone on this long.

The option to flag one of these fake books as inappropriate is present in the individual listing (on the web anyway)(3) but the process definitely doesn't seem ideal.

It looks like the specific publisher I linked to has been wiped thankfully, and searching "Google Play Services" doesn't surface any scams immediately. But others, even ones posing as entities like Supercell and Microsoft, still remain.
