Here's a little something for all you people making lovely apps for Android. If you use a pencil before you start to take your app to the digital realm, then we've made some templates to help you design for some of the Android handsets out there.
There are a whole variety of devices to choose from, with different screen resolutions, and hard or virtual keyboards. We find these help give our sketches a little context when we're presenting them internally or to clients.
The PDF is Letter size (8.5 inches by 11 inches) and the handsets are to scale, so you can use these quite happily for paper prototyping and get a realistic sense of scale. There's a subtle 10x10 grid on the screens to help you with your pencil based needs. If you're short on Letter paper, you can get away with printing them on A4.
If you have any suggestions, comments or improvements, feel free to suggest them here.
All that's left is to snack down on cupcake, donut or eclair, or if you're feeling greedy - all three. Enjoy - and click here for the templates.
These templates were designed and lavishly tooled by Ali Driver, Senior Designer at Future Platforms.
