The UI is right now consistent and improper. Considering user's mind, he will have to run on the screen to perform various actions. The best option to be applied here is your first point. i.e. Hamburger icon on left side. So that the user can have access to all the options in one go. e.g. You will put everything under hamburger icon but for Home button the ...

Here are a few guidelines to follow (without having to see your specific type of tabular data) 1. Focus on one task at a time (Search, Tabular Scan, Record Details) There is only so much screen real estate on a mobile device so I would completely separate the search options from the tabular data in such a way that the user can quickly toggle between the ...

The default is, as you said, to underline it where clicking on it will activate the phone app. Alternate solutions are all graphical-based, using the same mechanism but adding something to the number. Skype has a box around numbers, Google Hangouts puts a circle with an icon, etc. You can spend time doing that, but I recommend first offering the basic ...

Having the back and next at the bottom interferes with the number/alphanumeric keyboard and material sheets that slides up from the bottom. Use the native android action bar to display consistent navigation and view switches within the app. Use the native "Input Controls" for your "next button" following Googles design standards.

Yes there are alternatives Since you only have two views, a common approach that is also applicable to Material Design is to provide a toggle icon or word (map or list) in the topbar. This avoids the need to take up valuable real estate with a tab control, and may help you avoid the awkward scrolling design by enabling a fixed topbar. This approach is ...

Forget the "platform wars" and make the application user friendly from a touch perspective. The most important aspect you must try to achieve is to deliver a seamless experience across multiple platforms (make your app look and feel the same as much as you can on all platforms). As I see your application is not a very complicated so that shouldn't be so ...
