Apparently no one yet has written an excellent, basic teleprompter app for Android. +Nick Butcher and I tried a few today (paying a few £ for what's essentially a scrolling TextView) and weren't impressed, to say the least…
It is now possible to bring the benefits of your app to your users wherever they happen to be, no matter what device they have near them. Get started today by checking out our new reference sample: it's a bare-bones, but functional music player that works across your phone, car, watch and Google Cast devices. It's built on the new media APIs in Android 5.0 Lollipop and supports all the mentioned form factors in a single codebase!
This has been on my mind lately, so I decided to explore it in a quick opinion piece on AP. Essentially, those concerned about losing their brand in material design need not worry - there's plenty of room for your brand and Google's new aesthetic suggestions in the same interface.
Well, good article. In fact there are some problems with branding product in Android software development. Even good designers make a lot of mistakes. Think most problems are about little experience with android itself (thats not secret that 99% of them are iOS users) and we know how to solve them, but some of them strange. For example — just pick main colors and use it across all app (think it even close to book typography), but when you start to review map, a lot of different colors start to appear.
I'm not a designer, but such articles are great even for developers. Main disadvantage is that it's common, without examples. Just want more Material implementation in combination with developers instruments :)
