User Interface Guidelines

The Android UI team has begun developing guidelines for the interaction and
visual design of Android applications. Look here for articles that describe
these guidelines as we release them.

Design Guidelines
and Android Icon Templates Pack
Your applications need a wide variety of icons, from a launcher icon to
icons in menus, dialogs, tabs, the status bar, and lists. The Icon Guidelines
describe each kind of icon in detail, with specifications for the size, color,
shading, and other details for making all your icons fit in the Android system.
The Icon Templates Pack is an archive of Photoshop and Illustrator templates and
filters that make it much simpler to create conforming icons.

Processing & Android: Mobile App Development Made (Very) Easy

Those of you who have read this blog before will know that I do most of my work using Processing, an open-source programming language that was specifically created for artists and designers. It’s easy enough that you can learn the basics a day or two, but powerful enough to use for any number of applications, ranging from interactive installations to architecture to generative visual systems, and beyond. I’ve used it to visualize huge sets of data, to design a 1000 square-metre playground, and to create hundreds of small digital ‘sketches’. Over the last few months, Processing has gained yet another appealing attribute – you can now use it to quickly and easily create apps for mobile devices that use the Android operating system.

Quark’s Examples

Special thanks should go to Andreas Freise and Daniel Brown for creating this extension to the G4P library. These sliders are used extensively in their own 2D and 3D function plotting library gwoptics. As well as being cool these sliders have additional functionality including

  • floating point number ranges
  • ticks and labels
  • sliders can be constrained to ticks

  • The skins shown in this example are included in the library download. To create your own skins you should read the documentation that comes with GWSlider.
