GUI Design for Android Apps (Ryan Cohen, et al)

The ideal and succinct introduction for designers and developers of mobile apps is found in GUI Design for Android Apps.

The book demonstrates the essential guidelines for user-interface design for Android apps running on the Intel platform, including smartphones, tablets, and embedded devices, through simple lessons, code examples, and case studies.

This book, which is an excerpt from Android Application Development for the Intel® Platform, was created in collaboration by China Shanghai JiaoTong University and Intel Software College for self-directed learning.

The book can be used for training programs and Codeacademy-style programs, but it is primarily for app developers, software engineers, and aficionados of open-source programming.

  • Key aspects of why UI and UX design for embedded systems is different than for desktops
  • Troubleshooting UI design issues
  • Understanding how key concepts such as state transition, context class, and intent work
  • How to use the interface app design tools provided by Android
  • Planning for complex apps (apps with multiple activities)
  • Optimizing app design for touch screen input
