With Android Design guidelines becoming more robust and easier to implement, it's easy to have your application's design lost in a homogenized sea of "Holo Themed" user interfaces.
When is it ok to break away from the Design Guidelines? In this session, we will examine and showcase examples where developers have "thought outside the box" and implemented beautiful interfaces and animations that create captivating and unique experiences for their users.
We will also discuss how to achieve some of these design features in your own applications by looking at common patterns for a variety of designs that will leave your users delightfully surprised and help you push the boundaries of Android's paradigms in the future.
