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.

Sorry but this entire article could have been summed up as "I have OCD and I fear change". Just because you have problems with things being different or out of place doesn't make them worse - these inconsistencies have finally made computing open to the masses. Consistency never helped "normal" people use a computer - iOS has along with the apps.
These things irk me as well but I can see that I am wrong as I am sure can you. I suspect that your cutlery is all the same way up in the drawer, and a slightly open drawer must be closed ;)
