Most Alluring Android Apps That Make Use of Google’s New Material Design!

26 February 2015

Edinburgh: Last year Google released a new design vision called Material Design which incorporates flat elements, bold colours and informative animations that create a fresh user interface for the modern era. Material Design was first launched at the time of Lollipop’s release, and since then Google has been rapidly updating its apps and services to avail the benefits of new design directives.

It’s not only the Google that has been playing with the ideas of Material Design. Several third party Android app makers are releasing refreshing applications to match with Google’s new platform. The apps designed using material design offers a brilliant look and feel; they are much more enjoyable when compared to older Android applications.

Take a look of some Android apps that offer a fresh feel of Material Design:

  1. Action Launcher 3: The app offers some useful and unique ideas like app icons that act as folders and collapsible widgets. The latest version of Action Launcher 3 incorporates the ideas of new Material Design animations and transitions while making an attractive, efficient and easy to use home screen for your phone. It automatically customizes the background and colours of the folders, app drawers and search box according to the current wallpaper.
  2. Falcon Pro 3: Falcon Pro 3 is a fully featured Twitter application which is built by using the guidelines of Material design. The app provides you a buttery-fluid experience with its beautiful animations, transitions and great typography. It also has pretty useful features like granular notification controls, smart refresh rates and so on.
  3. FeedlyReader: If you are a feedly user looking for some Material design elements, just try FeedlyReader. It has almost everything that the people look for in a feed reader. Pull to refresh, offline caching, Spartan interface and quick sharing to other services. FeedlyReader also has delightful animations and customizable colour palette based on the themes of Material Design.
  4. Cabinet: It was actually one of the apps that started applying Google’s Material design even before the official launch of Android Lollipop. Cabinet is just a basic file browser which makes it easy to jump between the directories and access files on the phone. Though Cabinet is still listed as beta, people are not finding a single reason to not rely on it.
  5. Google Inbox: Google Inbox can stand as one of the best examples for the app built using Material design. The app has every single element that makes it more refreshing; the bold colours, one-handed navigation, pull to refresh actions and informative animations. Google Inbox makes it a fun to manage your inbox with its special features.
  6. Weather Timeline: Checking weather is the most common thing that anybody would do on their smartphones. Weather Timeline is certainly a prettiest way to do it on your Android device. The app gets the data from forecast.io to provide hyper local forecasts, radar, precipitation alerts and more. It has a brilliant interface which makes you dive in to get the information. It also supports Android wear devices; you don’t have to hold the phone in your hand to get the information.
  7. Simplenote: Simplenote has been a favourite cross-platform note taking app for many users as it really fast and very simple to use. Latest version of Simplenote brings the new Material Design that the users had been carving for. Evernote is good for advanced note-taking, like saving images and clipping websites. But for basic text notes, Simplenote is the best app.
