Android WearDrawers Sample

A simple sample that demonstrates Navigation and Action Drawers, part of Material Design for Wear.


Steps for trying out this sample:

        * Compile and install the wearable app onto your Wear device or emulator.
        (**Note:** You must install this app directly to your Wear device or emulator.
        If installed on a phone, it will not be automatically pushed to a paired Wear
        device, see [here][2] for more info).

        This sample uses the planets in our solar system to demonstrate the two Android Wear
        drawer components and concepts relating to [Android Wear][1] and [Material Design][3]:
        * Customizes and enables screen/planet changes with the [Navigation Drawer][4]
        * Adds customized actions to each screen using the [Action Drawer][5]
