I want to write some articles on Android usability and my thoughts on UI improvements. Being an active Android user and a fan I see some inefficiencies every day. I hope Google guys will find my articles and implement some of my suggestions. I think that that will improve overall user experience with Android platform.
Today I will start with Android Market. It is one of the most important Android features for me — I use it everyday to search, install and update lots of useful apps and games. Improving it will benefit both users and app developers.
If you have any comments and/or suggestions — feel free to leave a comment. I would also appreciate spreading the word about my articles — that will show how user interface and experience are important to both users and app developers and may influence Google decisions. I do really want Android to become even better and I hope you want it too.

Guys at Engadget has found a video which looks like Android 2.0 Donut
. A new shiny user interface is coming our way! Actually this video is taken from HTC Hero
, so maybe it is just a skinning by HTC - they are very good at it (:

Remember Minority Report
movie? It featured a very impressive user interface which one operates by making gestures in surrounding space. As John Underkoffler, chief scientist from Oblong
, said a very early version of their g-speak
user interface was used in the movie. Visit their web-site and watch video - I'm speachless!
