The iOS UI That Needs Fixing

There are at least 1 too many options and 5 too many words here. Make it stop.

Proposed solution:

STAY

(or)

GO

Screw voicemail. That would happen if you did nothing anyway.

If STAY > Nothing happens, and eventually other caller gets voicemail.

If GO > User gets choice > HANG UP? or HOLD CURRENT CALL > Proceed accordingly

I’ve hung up on caller 2 while hurriedly finishing voicemail for caller 1, pushing what seems to be the obvious choice on the left, enough times that I’m now writing a Medium piece to get the splinter out.

Just look at this again. You know this is wrong.

Enough! Someone, please, fix this.
