A session at Droidcon London 2012

Friday 26th October, 2012

In the past few months there has been a tremendous buzz around an emerging navigation component on Android. This pattern, known as the fly-in app menu or side navigation, is now used in numerous high-quality applications such as Prixing, YouTube, Spotify, Google+, Evernote, etc. In this talk, we will concentrate on understanding why these companies decided to switch from the plain old dashboard to the fly-in app menu. We will discuss about the advantages and drawbacks of using such a component in your own applications. To conclude, we will finish with an insightful and technical overview on how to create your own side navigation pattern and integrate it into your Android applications.
