I wanted to give a quick shout out to two Android apps that designers and app UI developers might find very useful in their work.

Huge thanks to both of the app teams! Android developer and designer community is amazing. Many of us spend our free time to make everyone's work easier.

OMG OMG! A new+Android UI Patterns  post :-O

OK, I admit. It is actually about  +Lands of Ruin  but it's not just a marketing speech. The road to where we are now has been long and I think interesting. I have screenshots from all the way of the 3+ years of development of the companion app. 

I hope you find it interesting as well:

There's been many, many discussion threads about the introduction of Splash Screens to Google design guidelines. Almost in all of the discussions the same arguments for splash screens pop up.

I decided to put my responses to the common arguments in form of a blog post.

Scalable Android UI takes some effort but when you get it right the results are rewarding.

Yahoo Weather app started some interesting discussions when it first launched. I wanted to revisit the app and see how it looks now after the platform has gone through a lot of changes as well as Yahoo has implemented some very nice improvements to the app. 
I'm also talking a look at the Yahoo Digest news reader app.

If you have seen any of my conference presentations you are aware that I keep raving about understanding and supporting user goals in your app design. Supporting users on what they actually want to get done is more important than visual design or even following design guidelines. By that I mean that no matter how great visual polish the app has or great design pattern it uses the app will fail if it doesn't help users achieve their goals.
