Are there Android UX patterns? The answer is “yes.”
I am pretty certain that Tim Bray is not reading this blog. But it’s pretty odd that within days of asking the question whether UI/UX patterns exist for Android, and suggesting that Twitter for Android makes for a great template, that he posts a perfect response to my question. The answer is a resounding “yes.”
Just as I wished, Twitter for Android is designed as a template for making great apps. I think this is wonderful, and the level of integration points will make Android the most superior smartphone development platform (if it isn’t already).
Let’s just hope they release the source to Twitter soon, and developers can start using the libraries to make even cooler Android apps.
