@danroundhill: during last week’s dev chat you asked about sliding menus. Not sure if you have done much research into, but this project just came across my desk today (at least one team at Google is planning on using it) that might be worth looking into: https://github.com/jfeinstein10/SlidingMenu It has instructions for working with ActionBarSherlock, which is definitely promising.
Kinda makes me want to do a navigation UI sprint that adds in a real action bar and this slideing menu. Maybe not a full UI overhaul, as I don’t think that’s really necessary… but just the two of these would be great additions. You mentioned you already had a patch for adding in Sherlock. How far along is that?
