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.

He surely is not.

I have devoted my whole projects main focus to consistency and a good interface. I am sure that users will come as I start to get enough features to be able to compete with the "big guys".

Absolutely confident that a user will choose a pretty and consistent UI over vomit if the app provides roughly the same features/stability/speed.

If just had more time I wouldn't stop at a music player but create great and good looking apps in ALL areas where a consistent UI is missing.

So... maybe lonely but not alone.

Indeed, you are not alone.

Even command line apps can't find consistency. Hell, here's one of my favorite pet peeves. Does "--help" go to STDERR or STDOUT?
