Abstract

Every part of our apps hold information and actions useful to our users. But the Main Activity is special: being the first screen seen by our regular users, the best of what we have to offer is on this screen.

This talk is about the principles we used to craft the MainActivity of Sensy TV Guide & Remote app — helping users find the best show to watch on TV. I share the challenges we faced, solutions we put in place and lessons learnt building a compelling recommender systems interface for our users.
