Are there any thoughts for or against putting text "actions" in the Android ActionBar? I can't find any examples of it being done, but I also can't find anywhere in the Android design docs that say this should/shouldn't be done. It does provide the ability to do it "out of the box."
I know it's a popular thing in iOS; my concern is making an app feel too much like an iOS port. If there was a clear ActionBar icon from the Android Asset Studio, I'd use that. Actions like "filter" and "login" (what I'm needing to do) just aren't clearly communicated with just a symbol IMO. Text on the other hand makes it very clear what the button will do.
