Learn How to Transform Your App into a Quantum Paper-Like Project
As you may already be aware, rumor has it that Google is planning to redefine the overall UI look and feel in Android. Not too long ago, we talked about Quantum Paper, the rumored unified UI that may define Google products across all platforms. These changes may be unveiled very soon, as Google is gearing up for its I/O event next week.
If you are eager to achieve a similar effect to this rumored UI paradigm in your application, there are ways to make your own apps more Quantum Paper-like. In order to show developers how to easily achieve this, XDA Senior Member krishneelg3 outlined the process. The tools that you need, in addition to basic coding knowledge, are an Android IDE like Eclipse or Android Studio and a good image editor to edit the graphics.
Krishneelg3 explains all this in detail, with regards to what needs to be changed to apply this new UI. The developer was also kind enough to provide a package with resources, which will help you out in smooth transition into a Quantum Paper-like UI. To complete the process, some changes in various XML files are needed, but everything is served on a metaphorical silver platter.
If you are an app developer and want to change the look of your projects to be up-to-date with the newest Android UI concepts, head over to the guide thread to learn more about Quantum Paper transformation.
