Google Calendar with Material Design – App Screenshots & Interface Demo



Google Calender Material Design

It’s raining Material Design all over!

Material design (codenamed quantum paper) is a design language developed by Google and announced at the Google I/O conference on June 25, 2014. Expanding upon the “card” motifs first seen in Google Now, it is a cleaner design with increased use of grid-based layouts, responsive animations and transitions, padding, and depth effects such as lighting and shadows. Designer Matías Duarte explained that “unlike real paper, our digital material can expand and reform intelligently. Material has physical surfaces and edges. Seams and shadows provide meaning about what you can touch.” Google states that their new design language is based on paper and ink.

Material design is used in Android 5.0 “Lollipop”, which is the newest version of the Android operating system available only as a developer preview (as of October 2014). Material design is also used in Google Drive, Google Keep and Google Docs, Sheets and Slides, and will be gradually extended throughout the Google’s array of web and mobile products (including Google Search, Gmail and Google Calendar), providing a consistent experience across all platforms and applications. Google has also released application programming interfaces (APIs) for third-party developers to incorporate the design language into their applications.

Google+ user Steve Albright has just leaked 45 images of the new Google Calendar with Material Design. Should the need arise, the updated app can also be downloaded here. It looks like only those with root access can run the app. While rooted, you will have to remove Google Calendar,  restart your device and then install the new Google Calendar 5.0 app. Users on a Google+ Post have told of the app crashing at some instances. This is not for causal tinkerers. We recommend you wait for the official update. Should you choose to accept this mission, prepare yourself to undergo various steps to root and then do the needful. The paths are different considering which Android device you own but in the end, it is rewarding and future proof.

You’ve been warned, I’m not responsible if you screw up your phone.

This whole UI overhaul looks amazing and pleasing to the eye. I bet no one would find this ugly. Following Google Calendar, expect multitude of Google Apps to get updated with Material Design (like: Gmail, Calculator, etc). So far, Material design is shaping up to be really good. Soon, we’ll have Nexus 6 in our hands and then we’d be able to show you ins and outs of Android Lollipop.
