Join Joe Marini for an in-depth discussion in this video Summary, part of Android App Development: Communicating with the User.
- [Joe] Thanks so much for watching this course on Communicating With Your Android App Users. I really hope you enjoyed learning along with me, about how to use the various Android user interface elements to inform users about important events in your applications. Knowing when and how to interact with your users is a very important part of building a well designed app. There's much more to learn on this subject, however. As always, Google developer documentation is a good place to refer to for in depth API usage.
Check out the detailed docs for notifications and for dialogues, and there's even a design discussion on how to choose between confirmation and acknowledging UI elements. Google's material design documentation is a comprehensive resource for building great looking apps that conform to Android design guidelines. It's divided into sections that cover an range of subjects from basic design to interactivity guidelines to growing your audience and much more. If you check out the section here under patterns, you'll even see that there's a section dedicated to building great notifications.
Take a look at material.google.com to get started. I hope to see you back here again in another one of my courses soon. Thanks again for watching, and as always, happy coding.
