The latest version of the Better Health Channel Android app is now available with an updated Material Design user interface.
The Better Health Channel app helps users take control of their health and wellbeing anytime and anywhere. Content in the Better Health app is developed by the Department of Health (Victoria) in consultation with over 200 content partners and is reviewed by subject matter experts as part of a rigorous quality assurance approval process. Information is evidence based and reflects current best practice.
The underlying philosophy of Material Design is that material is grounded in a tactile reality. The use of familiar tactile attributes helps users to quickly understand how objects move, interact and exist in space in relation to each other. Hierarchy, meaning and focus are communicated through the use of colour, imagery and typography. Motion, feedback and transitions are coherent and appropriate to context. In summary, Material Design creates a more intuitive experience for users by providing context and cues that are subtle but grounded by the rules of physics, while being open to imagination and magic.
