Abstract— The importance given to human-computer interactions (HCI) has been continuously increasing since the early days of computing. Advances in computer architecture and the related hardware components have notably enabled software developers to shift the focus from performance issues to usability issues, in other words towards the user. In this paper, we first give a brief presentation of the evolution of software development techniques for the implementation of user interfaces (UI). Then, we pedagogically document several modern user interface development best practices. The latter part of this investigation work has been conducted by considering the Android mobile application case and a very frequent application development scenario: view switching, responsive UI with asynchronous tasks and efficient data visualisation.

Index Terms—Software, computer, HMI, HCI, interaction, Java, mobile, smartphone, UI
