    These are the kind of issues developers should be thinking about when doing
    user interface work. Always.

    How about required 32 dp margins on text input fields?

    This one is still present even in great apps like Chrome and Evernote. I
    think you guys mentioned it yourself – a minimal target must be at least 32
    dp across. Even if you divide it by half (for very edge margin on a screen
    – there must be 16 dp left on left and right of text fields at the edge of
    the screen)

    A simple test is open any full width text editor (including Chrome address
    bar) and try to add a single letter in front of the URL or at the end –
    like adding an “s” to a URL. Good luck not hitting the X on the right and
    deleting the whole string. Or in case of text paragraph – the cursor is
    always placed after second or third character in front.

    If you ever tried to “fix” your search string in the “Open Graph Search” in
    Facebook – you know what I mean – it just gets deleted and you have to
    re-type it from scratch!

    +Roman Nurik Facebook has gone back to tabs with deep navigation since
    their analysis said out of sight out of mind actually hold true for apps.
    Also Google+ also updated its navigation to remove navigation drawer
    altogether. Can you share any insights content management for deep apps?

    Well, +Ron Amadeo, it looks like the Back button not working properly is
    actually something encouraged by Google.

    In this video, they use Google+’s Android app as an example of how
    navigation should work.

    Paraphrasing, but this is generally what is told in the video:

    “Selecting a section in the Navigation Drawer should act like a different
    app, for example, Google+, when you select a section, and press ‘Back’, it
    should kick you out of the app.”

    That is a terrible, TERRIBLE, Navigation mistake. And it works. If you go
    to Google+’s app, and select ‘People’ in the Navigation Drawer, and press
    Back, you’re kicked out of the app.

    The relevant portion is at 14:30.

    One question about Up Caret VS Back Button. In deeper navigation levels
    (details from a listview for example), should the Up Caret be always shown?
    Since we have the back button to do the same thing I normally don’t even
    use the “Up Caret”. Which is the best practice?

    @lewiswoohoo iPhone loaded the actual website not the mobile version – LOL
    You’re full of shit. You HAVEN’T used the webiste enough to distinguish the
    difference between desktop view (normal view) and mobile view. In fact, you
    have no idea what you’re talking about. Grab a Android phone & your iCrap,
    load ANY site on your PC, then load the same site on both phone and compare
    it to your PC. Which looks like the PC? Only the Android phone does but not
    the iCrap, because iCrap loads mobile version

    Thanks for the comparison. It is astonishing how much samsung have copied

    the origin of that law suit…

    That’s right it sucks at loading the regular version, it always loads the
    mobile version. You think with all the phones that can handle the regular
    web site that the mobile one just sucks, Fix it Rene. I bought the iPhone 3
    and now the 4 and get stuck having to see the crappy mobile web site..

    Regardless of the results of this test, wouldn’t it be more accurate to
    test a stock 2.2 versus iOS4, since 2.1 is months old and iOS4 is still
    fresh, not to mention Samsung’s TouchWiz 3.0 bloatware?

    Try search the android market for ical you should find an app called “The
