7pm—Socializing and refreshments


 In this practical session you’ll learn:

  • Key differences between designing for Android 4 vs. Android 2.x and iOS: How to use the new Action bar scheme and overflow menus to implement Right Size for Every Device (and where this fails). How to design Android buttons, actions, and menus. The truth about the Drawer menu. Google Plus and Bank Simple use it; should you? How to design forms and screens to flow, without containers, with rounded corners, using the Mobile Space Unbound design principle.
  • How to avoid a common IA mistake: creating a completely different UI for viewing and refining the same data, which results in a confusing information architecture. A TripAdvisor Android 4.0 case study will help you to avoid the common mistake of adding multiple, and ultimately confusing, ways to find the same content.
  • Parallel Architecture: Android 4.0 design pattern: This ingenious, practical design pattern will help your customers find your content and products easily, every time, while also providing an advanced user interface for customers who need it. Greg will demonstrate how to redesign the TripAdvisor interface using his lightweight, inexpensive, sticky-notes agile design method, which also creates a paper prototype ready for usability testing.


Greg will give away two copies of his new book: Android Design Patterns: Interaction Design Solutions for Developers, Wiley, 2013, as prizes to top participants!
