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.

Android Design

For those who are going to develop your Android apps, please take a look at "Android Design" section http://developer.android.com/design/index.html which helps you to create a good app especially for Android 4.0.

If you have experience in other mobile platforms development, you are also recommended to read this page http://developer.android.com/design/patterns/pure-android.html to avoid mimic the UI designs used in other operating systems.
