slide 1: Mobile Design Practices for Android: Tips and Techniques Mobile industry is rapidly on the rice due to huge demand for mobile devices across the world. When it comes to developing an app Android is the most attractive platform for developers but designing an app that looks amazing across different devices is quiet hard. Making the app look and feel great across multiple devices with different screen size aspect ratio and pixel density is not an easy task. The basic approach used by many app designers is to scale down their desktop website and make it responsive. This approach is not suitable for mobile design. As native app UI design doesn’t give you much space to work with your design must work at the speed of thought in smaller screens too. slide 2: To reach the largest number of people and grow your business your website needs to work well across different devices. So first sketch out your mobile web strategy. Today we will focus on some best mobile design practices for android. UI Design UI Design is the most critical part that plays a key role in the success of any mobile app. A mobile app looks flawless when its UI design can easily adapt to a wide range of mobile devices Screen Density Screen density is the resolution of a screen which is measured in dots per inch DPI. Designer must classify the mobile devices based on not only screen sizes but their screen densities as well. Alternative Resource Folders It’s a good practice to create an alternative resource folder for images and layouts. Which would help Android OS to load relevant images depending on the screen density and resolution of the mobile device. Layout Designing UI design and functionality varies greatly with different mobile devices. UI designers should create multiple layouts for mobile devices with varying screen densities. Themes They are the bases to develop a consistent style in fact is the first thing we have to choose when we start a design. If you want to customize your app as much as possible just take best theme as a starting point. slide 3: Typography Android has two types of fonts: Roboto and Droid Sans. The first one was created for high-resolution screens specifically. You can use it in different types like thin light condensed etc. Some other important tips to consider:  Understand standard Android navigation models UI elements and animations.  Identify expected aesthetics and interaction patterns  Account for hardware features available on Android phones and tablets.  Communicate design ideas using proper vocabulary and wireframes  Create interactive prototypes without coding  Determine the “development cost” of custom controls and unique experiences. Hope this article help mobile developers to create UI designs and layouts that adapt to multiple mobile devices with varying screen sizes and resolutions.
