Android Lollipop introduced the Material Design Guidelines that substantially changed how Android applications look. As a developer, there are numerous new controls and style considerations you need to understand in order to implement the user interfaces your designers are creating. You'll look at the CardView, RecyclerView, styles and even Marshmallow concepts like the text selection, and look at examples in Xamarin and Java.

You will learn:

  • What is Android Material Design
  • How to use the AppCompat V7 library to get at material design components
  • About the practical implementation of material design controls and styles
