There’s lost of reasons why you settle for less than ideal solutions, so I try not to be critical of choices that I don’t know the backstory behind. But OMG.
Here’s a “Click to Refresh” button in the middle of a iphone app for United. How doth you error? Let us count the ways:
It’s a refresh button — how many refresh buttons do you see on iphone apps?
It says “click” — when was the last time you clicked on a iphone app? Did they port this from Windows or something?!?
It’s tiny — good luck on hitting the refresh button and not something else
It’s in the middle of the freakin’ screen — that’s just so weird and non-standard I have a hard time articulating just why it’s so wrong
We could also go into the arrow on the left of the button and a few other problems but, heh, I’m so glad they managed to mix the gel-button look with the Windows 95 gray button look. That must have been hard.
Taking off my snarky hat now.
