Appspiration – Backwards Compatible ICS Apps

Since my last post I have been trying to come up with a new idea for an app, something that isn’t just going to get a few downloads and fade away. This is one of the hardest things to do outwith a day job, there are few processes left in life now that can still be improved and ways to make things easier often make things harder.

Seeing as I am completely dry of idea’s I decided to have a play around with the ICS design guidelines and try out some UI designs. When I realized that features such as ActionBar and ViewPager arent compatible before Android 3.0. It was during this time that I found a few widgets that help achieve similar effects with earlier versions of Android and would encourage anyone to use them.

This mans GIT should provide all –¬†https://github.com/JakeWharton

Look for ActionBarSherlock and ViewPagerIndicator both of which can transform any UI.

 

Since finding both of these I have yet to find my next idea but I am still  looking or if anyone has any requests let me know I can see if I can help.
