Android’s developer guidelines split its devices into three categories: low density, medium density, and high density screens. What that means for us is that we need to design in high resolution. More and more you’ll have to create resolution-independent interfaces, so you can save yourself an enormous amount of time by building designs that way from the start. This doesn’t necessarily require you to throw out your favorite bitmap tools and start jumping into a vector world, but it does mean thinking about the end product throughout the design process.

So if you don’t use all those features, you’re including overhead that you have no need for. This brings us to one of the design considerations when building a mobile web application: the uncanny valley. The uncanny valley is a theory that claims that the more lifelike a humanoid robot is, the more likely its appearance will cause revulsion in human beings. This idea can be applied to interfaces, so we should be aware of it when we start to look at the design (and behavior) of our application. If it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, and yet isn’t a duck, how are our users supposed to treat it?
