Style and Concept
What widget or app design styles do you like?
The screens should be put together with the Android user experience in mind, we don't simply want a series of good looking screens with a mashup of buttons-for-functions; we want things to make sense to the user. The flow of the app should be considered - you may wish to highlight functionality on your designs with notes (or maybe labels and annotations - we may ask to see non-labelled versions of your designs).
