If the exams option is always empty, then the users will (at some point, depending on the individual person) give up checking that menu option. If there is no mechanism in the application to draw the attention to new exams that appear, then you have a usability issue. Your suggestion is one way to indicate the "new items" idea, but it is not necessarily ...

Adding interstitial ads at any point in the hierachy you describe sounds probably isn't ideal. You don't want to interrupt the user journey while they are getting to the content. I assume there would be a way for a user to cycle through jokes (prev/next type functionality) and this would be the best place for those ads. Every X jokes show an ad. In terms ...

You can restrict the map in a tricky way. When user goes out of the target area, the map shows in some way it's no more useful for them. This could be fading out effect, blurring and desatiration, etc., see the picture below: Another option is to create tension while dragging out of the target area. Compare this to the last slide signifier in the sliding ...

I recommend muting the map by greying it out and reducing the amount of information it displays beyond France. If the navigation is suddenly disabled for a user exploring the map beyond France, there is a chance the user will interpret it as a bug and close the application. Furthermore, what happens for the user who loads the map in another country? Is ...

First off, wireframes are not high-fidelity screens, so striving pixel perfection should not be the main goal. Having said that, Android screens are dependant on size as well as density. Reading up on Google's screen support page should help clarify. Having developed for Android before, it's more important to create a basic layout, than to achieve total ...

I would not overdo it. Just add to the map (or in the menu) a "Home" button that centers your map in the desired area. PROs: Easy to implement and understand. The user still has the full functionality of the map if he wants, for example, see how far point B in France is from his house in Munich. Flexible and expandible (want to use the app for several ...

I would not have a refresh button out in the open but I would add a Refresh option in the Action Overflow just in case user don't know about or forgets the swipe refresh action. Sometimes redundancy is good because it acts as a safety net to cover all scenarios. Many apps does this, here are some examples: Android Email: Google Play Newsstand:

For the main sections you could use a spinner navigation in the Action Bar. So the active/visible section would display as a spinner rather than a static title. The sub sections would make sense to remain as tabs as you have mocked up. This pattern is seen in many apps including a few Google ones. Spinners ...

This depends on the both the frequency of the action and your provided fallback options. If deleting a file is a common task, then go ahead and display it upfront, if it's a task that is quite uncommon (e.g. as deleting a contact) then it's ok to require a bit more effort. Just be sure not to hide the button from the user, i.e. the user should always be ...

One of the first things to do when attempting to design a UI is to determine what information you need to display to the user, and I know this sounds like a no-brainer, but it's actually a very important step. Once you have a list of this (for you something like "stocks, return, time period, etc.") you can begin to see how the different data sets or ...

I'd go with your option 2 and put the date & time on the main screen, and have a dialog to pick start & end time. I don't see any need to use multiple sequenced dialogs. Even better would be to use an inline picker that appears in the list when you tap the date, and disappears once you've selected a time. (take a look at the calendar app in iOS 7). ...

If you think about it, the default iOS guidelines somewhat reflects Jef Raskin's idea about zooming interfaces: As you work your way deeper into the navigation hierarchy transition animations will slide you towards right and if you move back they will slide you to the left. If there is some sort of contextual popover it will always slide in from the ...

The bottom bar (also known as split action bar) is used in the cases where you have too many items for your action bar and the UI space is limited. EDIT: Do not forget that if you let the system handle the split action bar, it will hide it completely if all icons 'fit' in the topbar (usually in tablets and bigger screens) More info here : ...

final int actionBarTitle = getResources().getSystem().getIdentifier("action_bar_title", "id", "android"); final TextView title = (TextView)getWindow().findViewById(actionBarTitle); title.setEms(10); title.setText(name);

How about a phone that just knows it is in the users hand based on bio-metrics and make this whole argument go away.
