I am trying to find out if it is an Android design guideline to left align the text in the action bar. My search has gotten me two things. Firstly a way to center it, by creating a custom view, which seems like a hack and has been called that once or twice. It also feels dirty. Secondly another question related to this here on stackexchange claiming that it is indeed against android guidelines link here but i am not allowed to add a comment.
The design guideline for Android action bars is to left align the text or branding of the app, as opposed to center alignment in iOS.
Other article also seem to assume this, like this one
However when I try to look up this claim in official documents, like here, I am unable to find this.
So is it, or is it not Android policy to keep your action bar left aligned?
