The Apple-Google shift

I have been using a Mac since the 1990s, it was what designers used. But I own an Android tablet, and every time I have to switch to using an iOS device, it drives me nuts. There seems to be less and less discoverability and affordance built into iOS products. I keep having to having someone remind me of how to do simple things like, um. go back to a previous screen. Oh, they say, just tap 4 fingers in such and such pattern. Just swipe with 3 fingers while holding your nose with your other hand (just making that one up, but you get the point).

How about a BACK button? You can take minimalism and flatness WAY WAY too far, and that’s what Apple has done. I also don’t want to be locked into Apple’s walled garden, struggling to actually get a cloud feature to work, when I could have gotten the task done and be on to something else in the Android/google world.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
