There are a (finally) a lot of very pretty Android applications available in the Play Store now, and Google are doing their part to promote good design by creating a collection to showcase a few apps that they feel exemplify good design.
The ‘Beautiful Design’ collection on the Play Store was published earlier this year, and Google have gone ahead and released an updated version for Christmas. The Android Developers Blog states that the goal of the collection is
to highlight beautiful apps with masterfully crafted design details such as beautiful presentation of photos, crisp and meaningful layout and typography, and delightful yet intuitive gestures and transitions.
The collection has some pretty nice applications, such as Pinterest and Timely, which are some of my personal favourites. If you’re a fan of Android design, or just need some rad apps for your brand new phone or tablet, I’d recommend checking out Google’s Beautiful Design collection, as well as our very own Beautiful Android series of posts.
