Google has sent out a list to its developers so that they can check the points whenever they are working on the Android apps design of the world’s most renowned mobile apps platform, Google Play.
Mountain View’s new list is comprised of four sections that highlight the key aspects of Material Design. Some of its major talking points include tangible surfaces, a print-like appearance for its UI, and realistic motions that easily communicates what’s happening. Hoping to help developers make this transition as smoothly as possible, Google has provided visual examples and additional documentation to help people get with the program.
Check list includes:
Android 5.0 brings in material design as the new design system for the platform and system apps. Consumers will soon start getting Android 5.0 and they’re already seeing glimpses of material design with apps like Google Play Newsstand, Inbox by Gmail and Tumblr. Meanwhile, developers now have the Android 5.0 SDK, along with AppCompat for backward compatibility. And designers now have access to Photoshop, Illustrator and Sketch templates. All this means that now is the time to start implementing material design in your Android apps.
