comment Problem with avoiding right caret on Android
Looking at the G+ apps About tab I would say that additional actions will not be obvious enough in many cases if you just have a lighter font. I would like to make it more obvious and think I will add specific looking icons.

comment Problem with avoiding right caret on Android
Although it might seem like a list view it is not a list view at all. In this section of the screen a bunch of key/ value pairs are listed but overall the screen is more like a profile view e.g. the G+ app and the About tab there. Looking at that screen actually confirms your idea (and Michael Galpin and Robert Coopers idea on the related G+ discussion) to add meaningful looking iconic buttons that trigger the action like the call button beside any phone number on the G+ page. Also when looking at the page... the grouping with rounded corner boxes compared to the G+ seems just fine.

comment Swipe to expand/collapse left hand navigation
I am truly expanding and collapsing the menu and as such I will add a icon with an error sort of icon pointing left and right..

I want to encourage the users to discover it and all these patterns are too hidden imho.

comment Swipe to expand/collapse left hand navigation
I am doing pretty much what TweetPad is doing with my navigation, but the gesture detection is on the navigation rather than the main screen since it just makes room for whatever is on the right. And there are many different layouts. I agree that the problem is that there is no style guide and well established patterns and as such I will add a button that does the expand/collapse action.
