Android 5.0 and Material Design
21/11/2014 Filed in: Programming

With Android 5.0 being out on most of the Nexus lineup I decided it was time to improve my app 'TV Lige Nu!' to utilize the new Material Design. 'TV Lige Nu!' provides a program-view of selected danish television channels.

 My app is not completely Material Design compliant, but it is close enough in my opinion.

I really like the new Material Design coming with Andtroid 5.0. Clean lines and easy on the eyes. I choose to use the 500 to 700 colours 'Blue Grey' dictated by Google's wonderful Material Design guide.

  • 600#546E7A
  • 700#455A64

 I also decided to create a new icon to follow this new design. I used Gimp. Whenever I use Gimp it always seems as like you're doing 2 times the work you would usually do in Photoshop. It's a great tool, but just slow in my opinion. Maybe my workflow is just wrong?

You can find 'TV Lige Nu!' on Google Play Store.
