Community Guidelines

Welcome to the official Android Design community on Google+. This community is all about designing apps for Android.

Before posting to this community, please read the following guidelines. Posts that don’t adhere to these guidelines will be removed without warning. Repeat offenses will result in revocation of community membership.

(1) All posts must contain written text. The best discussion comes out of posts where the author has written something in the post’s body text—an opinion, a question, a request, etc. If you’re attaching a link or photo, at the very least you should describe why the attachment is relevant or valuable to the community. Posts containing only attachments (e.g. just links or photos) and no text will be removed. 

(2) Do not attach direct Google Play links to posts. While direct links to Google Play look great on Google+, they can be quite spammy. If you’re looking for design feedback on your app, or are posting about a well-designed app, attach screenshots or a video, and at most paste the link into your post’s body text.

(3) Do not post device mockups, home screen themes or Android graphic art. There are plenty of communities out there dedicated to this kind of material. This community is tailored to Android app design. Posts of this nature will be removed.

(4) Do not post about Android programming topics. The appropriate venue for Android programming (XML/Java/etc.) discussion is the official Android development community [Link 1]. If you’d like to link to a programmer/developer-centric article that is somehow relevant to designers, mention the design aspects in your post’s body text.

(5) Do not post about other platforms. While many design topics are relevant to any platform, posting about specific other platforms outside the context of Android is not appropriate for this community. For example, links to articles should either be specific to Android, mention Android, or be generally applicable to mobile or user interface design.

(6) Do not post links only to promote an app, product or service. If your post does not contain some content related to app design, and links to another website for promotional reasons, it will be considered spam.

And one quick guideline for commenting:

(7) Only comment if you have something to add to the conversation. This keeps things on track and easy for others to follow. To express agreement with a post or a comment, simply +1 it.

Please follow these guidelines when posting to the community. It bears repeating that posts that don’t adhere to these guidelines will be removed without warning and that repeat offenses will result in revocation of community membership.

Thanks, and happy designing!
—Your friendly moderators

Sorry. I'm not sure whether it's appropriate to ask this kind of question. Since I'm not native speaker of English. I have some English language problems to read the definition of Discrete slider. It says "The discrete slider thumb snaps to evenly spaced tick marks along the slider rail." What do "snap to" and "tick" respectively mean here ? I have looked them up in the dictionary. The dictionary says "snap : always followed by an adverb or preposition : to move into a specified position with a short, sharp sound" and "tick : a small, quick sound that is made by a machine (such as a clock) and that often occurs in a series to produce a rhythm". I think they are not the meanings of these words here.

Could someone explain it ?
Thank you.

In case you didn't understand it yet, I'll try to rephrase the sentence: "The discrete slider dragging knob will move to the small dots of the slider line when dragged."
That means you can't drag and keep it anywhere, it will always move to the next nearest dot.

does this icon look okay?
 
Icon by +Viktor Vucinic


Here's the icon for an app I'm working on, lunatic locations. It's a vape app so it probably wouldn't be of much use for most of you but just thought I'd share.

Is anyone else facing this problem with the updated android SDK(23). I have an activity, which has a fragment that contains a ViewPager with two android.support.v4.app.Fragments. When I navigate to this Fragment that contains the ViewPager from my activity, the titles in the PagerTabStrip above don't show till I swipe to next Fragment, the 'About' Fragment, as seen on my screenshot. I also noticed that this updated SDK also affected my CollapsingToolbarLayout in the sense that if I navigate to a Fragment and add it to the backstack. On pressing back key, the Fragment is Popped as normal but my CollapsingToolbarLayout looses it's title. Is this a bug? Or is their something in the new SDK I'm not getting right?

It's a bug. I guess we need to wait for 23.0.1 https://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=183127

Hi guys,

I am used to using Photoshop to make icons but I'm having a go at using Illustrator because my design PSDs are getting huge and sluggish and I think Illustrator might be able to handle it a bit better. Was just wondering what you think the easiest way to create the tinted edge on objects in Illustrato? I'm struggling with it a bit.

Cheers

The way Google says on their design website (and the way I used for my icon) is to copy the object move it on pixel up and give it a slightly brighter color

Update on my app UI for LocalLedge.

I was able to speak with a few UX / UI people and made some nice new layout changes that should help to boost signups and engagement.

Image 1: New signup screen simplified.

Image 2:  Tutorial example screen/preview before signup.

Image 3: login screen.  Simpler signin process and items now in buttons

Image 4: The Ledge screen example (Main interface)

Image 5: Ledge Creation screen.  Simplified the process a bit.

Any feedback on the screen shots is apreciated.  I should have the newer version of the app out as soon as my Dev fully tests out all the functions.

Looks really nice but I find colored/iconified spinner to be a little distracting.

I will work on it but spacing between texts has a consequence: get littler (so unreadable) texts. 

I work on a brand new approach for an other activity tracking app.

I read the Adaptive UI section of the Material Design guidelines. Since I'm not native speaker of English, I have few English Language Problems.
Here are some questions:
1. It says "Desktop breakpoints are 16dp below the listed values to accommodate variations in browser chrome."  Does "16dp" refer to gutter ?

2. What's difference between "Full-width grids" and "Centered grids". I don't understand even though I have watched that animation ?

3. What does "panel" here refer to ?

Could someone explain it ?
Thank you.

I want to ask two more questions:
1. In above question 1, the breakpoints will be "the listed values minus 16" or "16"?

2. Does "column" in this page of guidelines refer to the spaces between the blue lines in those animations, and "grid" refer to these blue lines ?

Thank you for help.
