Now that we’ve released Mondo for Android 0.1 I think it’s time for us to share with you how a full fledged 1.0 could look. Allow me a disclaimer though, this is still very early stage, our 1.0 will probably be much smaller in scope
As we do on iOS we’re committed to deliver a world-class Android experience, built on top of the excellent platform conventions of Google’s Material Design and sprinkled with a bit of “Mondo love” whenever we need bespoke elements.
We take Android seriously and last thing we want is for you to feel that the app is just a “port” or second-class citizen compared with the iOS version. That’s why we’re designing everything from scratch. Even the new features (like the amazing new search that @zancler shared two weeks ago) have been already designed multi-platform
Said that, let’s go to the pretty pictures
First thing you’ll notice is that we’re considering a classic drawer navigation + floating button for feed related actions. Even though Google recommends Bottom navigation we think this pattern may work better for us and reduce complexity on the top dashboard area.
Another big section is “Your spending” where we’ll take advantage of motion and colour to drive the attention while browsing each group. We’ll do cool stuff like opening transactions as bottom sheets, so you can quickly take a look without losing the context of your previous aggregation.
Of course there are many more screens but I hope these few could at least give you a glimpse of the direction we are following and exactly where we are the moment.
What do you think? Are we on the right path?
