I have a list with items. I want to know, if I can edit the name of the item inline. Just tap and rename the item. Is this right to make it in android? I don´t see any app that do this... thanks!
From the interaction point of view
People will be touching the UI a lot: long press, swipe, drag, double touch, etc. It can be frustrating to users if the renaming feature is constantly initiated because the user accidentally touched the screen.
I would make an edit icon appear when pressing and holding a list item for a while - this is always the first thing I try when it comes to edit stuff. By using an edit icon (or menu) appear - the user won't be transferred into a new location which can be confusing.
The Facebook app is using a swipe from right to left to make the Edit menu appear. It took me a long time before I found that one out - not sure why they went that road.
As a backup - I would put edit menu list item under the menu that opens when pressing the Android device's menu button. That's where I (and probably a lot of other users) secondly checks for functions.
