Google has written a style guide for Ice Cream Sandwich, hoping to help developers and device manufacturers create apps and user interfaces that are optimized for both tablets and smartphones. The style guide is called Android Design.

According to Android Developer Blog, Android Design is a “place to learn about principles, building blocks, and patterns for creating world-class Android user interfaces. Whether you’re a UI professional or a developer playing that role, these docs show you how to make good design decisions, big and small.”

The recommendations supplied in the style guide are optional, however, Google’s intension is clear – it’s trying ensure that future Android apps and custom user interfaces from manufacturers work well in terms of user experience, regardless of differences in display sizes and other hardware features. The aim is to make the Android platform less fragmented as a whole, even within the unified Ice Cream Sandwich version of the operating system.

The current Android Design guide is just the first step towards this goal, with more in-depth content promised in the coming months. Refer to the blog post, and the Android Design guide, for more information.
