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.

It all started with CD/MP3 players

Some of the first apps to annoy me with inconsistency were CD and MP3 player apps. For some reason it was unquestionable that such apps should try to look like a Hi-Fi system rather than a computer program. They weren't even allowed to have normal window frames.
