Google Releases Android Design To Help Developers Create Beautiful Android Apps
By on January 13th, 2012

Back in October, Google announced the next major version of Android – Ice Cream Sandwich – which laid major emphasis on making Android beautiful and much more user-friendly.However, the OS is only one part of the equation. Apps also need to be beautiful and simple to use, just like the OS.

Sadly, like Android OS, Android Apps are also known to look like piece of shit, and have a non user-friendly UI, and inconsistent UI. One major reason behind this is that Google, unlike Apple and Microsoft, does not provide developers with any specific guidelines on how to create beautiful Android apps. Until now that is!

Today, Google has released Android Design, a place where Android developers can learn the principles, building blocks and patterns for creating high-quality Android apps. The big G has provided an exhaustive amount of information in Android Design so as to help developers.

Android developers don’t necessarily need to follow the principles mentioned by Google, but it is highly recommended they do so, so that they can maintain a consistent UI experience across Android devices. I seriously hope all popular Android app developers will update their apps based on the UI principle from Android, and help in improving the quality of apps in the Android Market.
