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.

Do you think that all door handles, should look the same no matter what house or building they are on?
Consistency is more about function than about looks. All door handles work the same, you push them down and they open the door.

I once was at an airport with round door handles on the bathroom stalls. The locking mechanism was also combined into the door handle. I couldn't figure out how to lock or even make the door stay closed so I had to take a shit while keeping the door shut with my hand.

I would highly apreciated this door handle and lock to be consistent with other door handles and locks.
