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 agree. On a desktop, consistency in menus and dialog boxes is about all the consistency I need, knowing where to open files, print, create a new document, how to navigate to directories ... etc.

On a tablet running iOS where "only one application is visible at any given time", isn't that a virtue for a limited screen?

What would a good alternative look like? That's not a rhetorical question, I would really like to know.
