I recommend you to check resources dedicated to User Centered Design and Interface Design.

 

There is nothing about fancy graphics, it is about the right approach.

 

Check this link: Guidelines for Handheld Mobile Devide User Interface

 

Check google and book stores for information/books dedicated to User Centered Design.

Re: How to create pretty user interfaces?

thank you guys...I already have the UI Guidelines docs...I just need some real-world sample code to create pretty UI...

Even if they don't perfectly follow the guidelines, I don't think most people care about that when they use Facebook or other "nice" apps, no?

 

Anyway, if anyone has a reference to some sample code for complex UIs....

Thought we should link these posts since they are similar in what we are seeking.
