  3. 3. Android Design Principles ● Enchant Me ● Simplify My Life ● Make Me Amazing
  4. 4. Enchant Me ● Delight me in surprising ways ● Real objects are more fun than buttons and menus ● Let me make it mine ● Get to know me
  5. 5. Simplify My Life ● Keep it brief ● Pictures are faster than words ● Decide for me but let me have the final say ● Only show what I need when I need it ● I should always know where I am ● Never lose my stuff ● If it looks the same, it should act the same ● Only interrupt me if it's important
  6. 6. Make Me Amazing ● Give me tricks that work everywhere ● It's not my fault ● Sprinkle encouragement ● Do the heavy lifting for me ● Make important things fast
  7. 7. Pure Android ● Don't mimic UI elements from other platforms ● Don't carry over platform-specific icons ● Don't use bottom tab bars ● Don't hardcode links to other apps ● Don't use labeled back buttons on action bars ● Don't use right-pointing carets on line items
