Dark Patterns: The Devil in Mobile UI UX Design?
Stefano Malachi

I am not convinced the NYT example is a dark pattern. You could argue they’re being a bit sly with the X to close, but that could just be their standard (and the contrast is no different to the log in link). They also have a ‘remind me later’ button which is prominent. The other examples though — definitely dark, and the people doing them need to be outed.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

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