UI gently tweaked in Android 1.5

Chris Ziegler

If you didn't like the way Android 1.0 looked, odds are you're not going to find 1.5 much more to your taste, but some ultra-minor refinements to the latest version's UI elements help add some extra spit and polish that's been missing since the initial launch. The official Android Developers Blog has published a heads-up to devs out there over concerns that the tweaks could break UIs in existing applications; specifically, the minimum width of some elements has been slashed by 20 pixels, so certain layouts could end up looking all wonky. That said, we're digging the revamped contact creation screen (pictured on the right, versus the old style on the left) -- so even if the changes are glacial, at least they're glacial moves in the right direction.
