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.

okay, so android has a back button that works IN EVERYTHING but does different things in different places! WHAT! and it has a menu at the top and sometimes at the bottom AND THE ICON IS DOTS, WHAT DO DOTS MEAN?????? and long pressing for options is an ingenious use of a touch screen BUT IT USUALLY SUCKS and did I mention you arent allowed to close or minimize or pause apps, it all happens automatically BECAUSE WE ARE RETARDED? NO, stop it, stop it, we arent going there right now, we arent going to the bad place
