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.

...comes not from designers... it comes from people higher-up in the company hierarchy who think because they project leaders and CEOs that they automatically have design knowledge and know more about UI design then their designers. They insist that there ideas (make it pink - I like pink, make that bigger no one will see it...hmm that makes everything else look less important, make those other things bigger too, and add icons so that people know which bits they should be loooking at...) make it in to the design until what you have is a horrible mess. Sadly their ideas are more often than not, based on their person preferences.
