Migrate your menu buttons to the action bar

Starting from Android 3.x and 4.x, you are encouraged to use the action bar instead of menu buttons to display relevant options to users. There is a new post in Android developer blog which talks about this change as well as the implementation.

You may take a look at http://android-developers.blogspot.com/2012/01/say-goodbye-to-menu-button.html in conjunction with our sample "Improved UXP example - ICS". Set the android:minSdkVersion="8" or even lower if you would like to try this sample in older platform.

Questions? Drop us an email :-)
