Your UI should always be responsive and always provide visual feedback to the user. Here are examples, of feedback interactions you should include:

  • When the user presses an item, provide visual feedback (a pressed animation)
  • When the user begins a long-running operation such as a network call or saving a file asynchronously, show a progress control or other way for user to know that the action is executing.
