One of the key features of the Google’s new Material Design is introduction of more animations than we have seen before in the guidelines. Material Design is all about bringing tactile materials to our UIs. Things in real life move and interact with our touch in a certain way. With the new guidelines Google is  [ Read More ]

Material design is something that I have not had time to write about yet (but believe when I say that I will!). Fortunately there’s no shortage of others talking about it.

This is a topic that keeps popping up in many design discussions and seems to be often misunderstood. What does it mean to follow the Holo guidelines when building an app? Does it mean that every  [ Read More ]

Google have updated their Google Maps app for Android. This update is a big change from the previous app version. The new app shows couple of very interesting new design choices.
