Android finally has established design guidelines and widely used UI design patterns. Android users understand functionality of components like the navigation drawer, action bar, sharing and many more. However, with the guidelines are just that, guidelines, not rules. All Android apps should not look alike but neither should they all reinvent all the controls. In this presentation I want to take a deep dive into details of the common design patterns and how they can be customised without compromising usability. I want to help developers and designers alike to understand how to correctly use android UI design patterns.
