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.

Besides the fact that the mobile UI with touch (compared to stylus) opened up the doorway for people to experiment, I have always assumed that the lack of UI inconsistency is due to the the way the app was developed.

There are rapid application SDKs out there that allow a seasoned html or php developer, with little knowledge of UI discipline, to whip up an android or an ios app.
