Do Androids dream of a great UX?

More than a billion people now use the Android platform. It’s the platform of choice for more than 68% of EU5 smartphone owners, and dominates markets such as Germany and Spain with shares of 75% and 86% respectively. In fast growing economies such as India and Brazil, Android penetration is now approaching 90%.

This would sound almost idyllic, if not for the constant cries of “Android fragmentation”. How do you design for 100s of devices, 1,000s of screen sizes, an audience of billions, and the coming tidal wave of Android-enabled toasters, TVs and wearable devices?

This workshop will arm participants with the knowledge required to approach Android user experience projects with confidence. We will discuss common Android design patterns, and the many built-in features that enable you to design great experiences for such a highly diverse audience.

What attendees will take-away:

  • Key ways that designing for Android is different from iOS.
  • An understanding of Android design and navigation patterns.
  • How to adapt text, layout and images for multiple screen densities.
  • How to leverage Android’s responsive and adaptive design capabilities.
  • Opportunities to extend the app experience, and enable multi-device interactions.
