Graphics, User Interfaces It's been one of my major pet peeves on both Android and iOS: the total and utter lack of consistency. Applications - whether first party or third party - all seem to live on islands, doing their own thing, making their own design choices regarding basic UI interactions, developing their own non-standard buttons and controls. Consistency died five years ago, and nobody seems to care but me.

I care. What's worse, this lazy, half-assed design is seeping into desktop operating systems. It's a big step backwards.

The faddish trend to push flat, grey touch-style interface elements into desktop apps is also bugging me quite a lot.
