Designing Android App user experience:
How do you design for what’s fast becoming the world’s dominant mobile OS? What iPhone best practices translate and what don’t?

Android is overtaking iOS for global penetration (80% of smartphones) and already leads market share (53% Sept 2013) in the mobile space. If you are designing an Android app user experience, you need to compete with the simplicity and trust generated by many iOS apps.

Mobile app user experience requires a deep focus on usability. When approaching your Android App, adherence to the Android style guide, best known patterns, anti-patterns and usability best practices are crucial.

In this class we review how to think about Android app design and get around the Android UI style guide. We will learn how to design for Android by supporting intuitive Android interfaces.

Android version note: In this class we will focus on interface distinctions and developments between Jellybean (45% users), Ice Cream Sandwich (22% users) and the latest Kit Kat (Due out Oct 2013) interface.
