Vitamin: Five Android Interfaces That REALLY Work
2014-07-11 7:01am -07:00T Visit Vitamin


Outtake:

It is not unusual for conversations about Android design to turn ugly. While it’s true that the original design of the intrepid operating system were inferior to iOS, and that the old Android Market, without any oversight, was full of apps that paid no attention whatsoever to design guidelines and conventions, the recent discussion about design in Android has a very different tone. Under the direction of lead designer Matias Duarte, Google recently unveiled a new Material Design spec that looks fantastic and has thus far been very well received by many in the design community.

The design team at Google has crafted a carefully thought-out and implemented design framework for next generation Android apps that will run on phones, tablets, PCs, TVs, watches, and cars. “The material is grounded in tactile reality, inspired by the study of paper and ink, yet technologically advanced and open to imagination and magic.”

Sadly, the Material Design aesthetic won’t be available until the next release of Android is officially released in Fall 2014. Until then, lets take a look at some current Android user interfaces that are both visually engaging and a delight to use.
