Designing Android 4 Apps for iOS Designers!

Designing Android 4 Apps for iOS Designers!

What you'll learn in this talk:
Key differences between designing for Android 4 vs. Android 2.x and iOS 7: 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.

Drinks and food will be provided.

    Greg was an excellent speaker. Just discovered his mini design course last week and am finding it very useful, folks should definitely sign up for that. It was annoying that the meeting was advertised as starting at 6:30 and yet it clearly wasn't planned to start until 7; no problem that it went til almost 9, the information was great.

    Maybe my english isn't the best, but doesn't this title mean we are designing the Android, not the Apps?
