Creating UI for Android

Hey just looking for advice on making the most aesthetically appealing UI for an android app. I’m aware of Sketch,Adobe Illustrator, and Photoshop as being the best tools for the design. I am curious as to what would be the best way to go about making the app look appealing. Thanks!

A few tips:

  • Keep it simple & stupid, when you need a tooltip for a button, the design has failed
  • 7 Colors maximum, else it looks like a neon-disco
  • Allign all the things!
  • Be consistent
  • some people have sausages for fingers
