The sins of our UIs
Max Kilb

You’ve made some good points here.

Obviously, there are cases where something doesn’t make sense when moving between platforms, or where a platforms native controls need to be considered. However, there are countless cases where inconsistencies exist seemingly because different teams built the products, or because one product was lower priority than the others.

I’d suggest that swipe to delete on contacts may not exist because it’s a feature that people would rarely use — and are probably more likely to do accidentally than on purpose, which could be very bad if there isn’t a way to recover from that action (email at least has a deleted folder).
