Android UI Cookbook Overview

This article will share some custom designs and examples of how to translate them into Alchemer Mobile interactions using styles.

Our objective with this is to encourage more UI customization within your app while using our Alchemer Mobile SDK!

We are hoping this might also inspire some new UI within your app and break down some of the barriers to implementing some more complicated Alchemer Mobile interaction UIs.

Note about WCAG / ADA Accessibility Compliance

Alchemer Mobile's Out-of-Box UI theme for Android SDK 6.0 is WCAG 2.0 AA and WCAG 2.1 compliant. Alchemer Mobile cannot guarantee compliance for customized UI themes. If you customize any UI elements in our Android SDK 6.0, please use https://webaim.org/resources/contrastchecker/ to confirm that your text colors, selector colors, and icon colors meet or exceed WCAG 2.0 AA and WCAG 2.1 minimum contrast levels.

Reminder

Default Alchemer Mobile interaction styles are designed to look like Material Design.

See the Android Interface Customization article for our default stylings.

Example App

The code for all 3 cookbook designs can also be found within the example app styles file.

Overview

We have 3 app styles with Alchemer Mobile interactions custom-tailored to fit that app’s specific theme.

We’ll split up each design by interaction type. We’ll have supporting files and the styles to create your file for each type. After this, you just need to set the styles within your ApptentiveThemeOverride style (or app theme style)!

Notice

All interaction designs are possible starting from 6.0.0.

We do not cover both Light and Dark themes within this article.
