Always wanted to dig deeper into design fundamentals and share with the world outside. Here's the first opportunity that I've had to do so with Caster.IO. Even better: this video's free!
A detailed look into one of the key design principles that every designer should know. This will also help every developer and PM as well.

Just played with my Google Home for the first time. Quick thoughts:
1. Binge watching YouTube is definitely going to increase. Can't wait for Netflix integration
2. Probably also increase Play Music consumption
3. Disappointing that the add to shopping list Google Keep list made by the Assistant is different than the one made by Google Now, meaning you end up with two lists potentially. Definitely going to be easier to add what needs to be bought though.

EDIT:
4. Definitely impressed by it's ability to detect my voice from a distance, wish it had a ping when listening though so I knew it was listening. Though it's doing it so well, I think I'm always going to just assume it worked.

Great job with Talon, Luke. Quick question: have you considered adding a notification listener that performs a background sync for notifications when the Twitter app pushes one? Could be a hacky but great way of adding push capabilities to Talon itself (and allows most of us to turn off background sync).

You could mute the twitter notification while I open Talon to view the response/favorite? Keeps me inside talon instead of using the official app

Just released Obsrv, an Android app that make it easier to do usability testing on the platform. Open prototypes from Invision, Marvel or Framer, record users as they go through them and even share an entire project - with multiple prototypes from multiple tools - with a single link.

If your team does usability testing and/or prototyping on Android, I would love for you to give it a try!
Obsrv simplifies usability testing on Android

Just launched a +Teespring campaign related to my talk at +Droidcon NYC. Go order! Use the discount code "friends" to get $4 off until Friday (equivalent of US shipping costs)
This campaign aims to help us designers remember that we aren't building products for likes on dribbble or upvotes on Product Hunt: we're building products for the average user.

I just published an analysis of the design and functional changes to notifications in Android N. Would love to hear your thoughts!

v1.0.1 has been released

The update largely fixes a few minor-but-important bugs reported by community members. For those interested in technical details: the app also now uses Support Library 23.2 and all icons used are Vector Drawables.

I was hungry as hell after a long day roaming around. Originally I was heading somewhere else, but I'm so glad I came here. Ordered the chimichangas which were really good. Good enough to make me write my first review on Google.
