comment Checklist App (Process Documentation) Interface For Android Mobile Tablet & Phone
1) Understood, I've seen similar with "Color Note". Great! 3) I know of that app. They have the same design philosophy that I want to follow! I will check it out. :-) 4) OK, I agree with your initial point that drag/drop allows the user to touch and interact and is the android way :-) ... on the color, I want just a hint like how the core apps sometimes use blue. BTW, I didn't realize who you were initially until my friend pointed it out. Thank you so much for answering my question! This totally made my day. :-) <3 Google

3) Do you know if that is default behavior for a list item? Should I roll my own widget? I would be grateful for some direction. 4) Excellent, I'm sure this is well documented but if you have any direction here also, that would be sweet :-). Let me ask...would it be OK to have two ways to do something? Like drag and drop, but maybe also a "Up" and "Down" button in context action bar? Last question, not mentioned yet: since you know the guidelines, you know the color swatches? Could I pick any colors from that and still be a proper android app? I want to pick a hilight color. TY!!! :-D

Great response, thank you so much! :-) I appreciate insights from someone who knows the android design guidelines because I absolutely want to give a seamless and true android experience to my users. Let me follow up with the same numbers you listed above 1) That's fine for the phone interface, but on the tablet there will already be a + icon for adding a new checklist, how would I differentiate adding an item? 2) Contextual action bar sounds perfect, I read about them just last night :-) ) running out of room, I'll continue...
