I've recently designed a new Android Application for a theme park.
According to Android Design Guidelines:
If your app uses action bar tabs, use swipe to navigate between the different views.
Problem is that my different views contains elements that require both vertical and horizontal touches to interact with them (for example a tab with a mapview).
Also specified in the Guidelines are:
Use tabs if:
You expect your app's users to switch views frequently.
You want the user to be highly aware of the alternate views.
There are some screenshots of the design:
As you can see, both the start screen and the info screen requires the user the be able to scroll horizontally which breaks the 'swiping between screens' functionality.
Should i disable the swiping between screens in favor of interacting with views or what is your suggestions?
