Android user interface (UI) presents to the users the first impression of your app based on the look of the layout and UI controls. However, this is only one side of the story. When the users start to interact with your app, they will derive their own feeling about your app from the interaction, that feeling will determine whether the users are going to stay or dump your app. That is the power and subtleness of User Experience, or UX in short.
Today, users interact with Android apps mostly through gestures such as touch, swipe, and pinch, or tapping on the soft keyboard. It is, therefore, imperative that your apps provide for and handle such interactions. In this book, you will learn how to achieve the two objectives as follows:
- Detect and respond to gestures in Android apps; and
- Turn the soft keyboard into a smart keyboard that is more responsive and more productive to its users.
