Another issue with the Clock App (and possibly others as well)

I should have added this with my earlier post about the clock app, but there’s another thing that annoys me.

The scrolling feedback – the white thing you see when you there are no more screens left to swipe to in an app – gets cut off by the action bar.

dont like how the feedback gets cut offOne way to get around this would be to make the action bar translucent, the way it is in Keep. ┬áThat way, the feedback would show through the action bar, and you wouldn’t feel like it’s a bug.

What do you think?


The Future of Android App Design – Transparent System Bars.

I just got an update for my file manager of choice – Sliding Explorer.


I got really excited, and decided I had to make a post about this.

Transparent System bars is the future of Holo design. The Navigation bar isn’t a waste of space anymore, and the status bar merges with the app, which makes it look like it’s built into the OS!

I don’t know about you, but I really want to see more apps take advantage of this.
