It’s been a while since our last update to the app design guides so I thought it was about time I shared the latest additions to this growing resource.

Screen sizes

A brief intro to the framework we use for designing for a scalable OS - the grid unit. With a link directly to a more detailed explanation on developer.ubuntu.com.

FAQs

We’ve started to collect frequently asked questions. This section could be improved if it was a little more ‘live’ so we’ll have a think about that.

Read our most frequently asked questions.

Combo button

When you are receiving a phone call, it is possible to decline the call (of course), or alternatively you can decline and reply with a message. To accommodate this and similar use cases we have designed the combo button. Use the combo button to display secondary variations of the primary action.

See our new combo button.

Option selector

While designing System Settings we have come across many situations where there is a need to select from a list of mutually exclusive options. Use the option selector when you need to select an option from a list.

See our new option selector building block.

Slider

Our slider has gone through a little makeover too.

Take a look here.

Remember, this site is a work in progress, so we will continue to iterate on the content and design. As usual you can find us on the Ubuntu Phone mailing list and the IRC channel.
