It’s no secret that Android developers have a harder time adapting their apps to work ably on the myriad screen sizes and resolutions presented by the various manufacturers.
Google is trying to alleviate some of the pain by introducing Android Design, a simply-yet-comprehensive walkthrough for prospective designers, giving tips on the best aesthetic decisions when creating apps for Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
