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 don't see it as a problem. The only thing people need to know it you can touch or click on stuff. It seems millions can quickly figure out how stuff works. Even kids can.

Personally I like the variety of looks, feels and controls.

Once it's been set up and properly explained, sure.

Oh the amount of calls for help I've gotten over the years about people buying iPhones and iPads asking me to set it up for them and how it works.

They called you because they have your number. If they didn't they would have figured it out themselves.

At work people ask the most stupid questions, but at home they can figure out how to download warez, movies and the latest music albums.

I don't believe you. I work with people with brain injuries that have never used iPhones before and they are very successful at it. The interface is not hard to learn at all.
