App Design Clinic #6


We have been running the app design clinic every two weeks to answer any questions from community designers and developers on the apps they are working on!

For this session we talked about the community submitted convergence designs for file manager and clock app (thanks everyone!) as well as answering some questions from our Canonical engineers submitted apps, such as:
– If your app has two equal actions- how do you provide entry points?
– What if I want to show more content, but page stack is not appropriate?
– Where should ‘About’ & ‘Settings’ go? (Not in the tabs, please)

If you missed it, or want to watch it again, here it is:

Please send your questions and screenshots to
design@canonical.com by 1pm UTC on a Tuesdays to be included in the following Wednesday clinic.

Watch this space for our next App Design Clinic time.
