iprocrastinate has procrastinated on reading the fucking hig
what is up with that black, does this guy not know that lilac is the new black.
changing an icon every release is fucking dumb in itself but what the fuck is this supposed to be seriously guys
‘release tracker’ is a mish-mash of randomly placed buttons, awkward nonstandard tabs and a gruesome color palette. sometimes i think people make these apps and screenshots purely to sustain this blog.
but wait the fun doesnt end with logitech how about printer and scanner software oh boy thats always a lot of fun
you grab a cup of tea to set up your printer, open this thing and suddenly this sheet pops up, okay whatever ill press ‘ok’.
NOPE. that quits the app. wait, read that sheet again, carefully…
you cant make this shit up.
i didnt post for a while because i was setting up some new devices i bought, like this harmony remote.
you know what this is? it’s ie5. thats right, an embedded internet explorer view in mac os x. no, of course you can’t copy and paste text into that. that’s a fucking ie frame, bitches.
gotta love the fucking useless ‘how do you rate the remote so far’ at the side there, too.
whats more horrifying:
- the lady
- the blue
- the highlight style
- the fact that this app is 29 bucks
- the trouble someone went through to create those buttons
- the fact that people bought this and reviewed it as ‘terrific’
its like the office ribbon ui tripped and hit its head on the corner of the table and started going into a fit and shit all over itself
i absolutely love the toolbar ‘icons’.
also, what is ‘close’ doing in the toolbar. no, really, where do they get these developers that are unaware of the system standard window controls?
i didnt even know about this until i read about it on tputh. ironically, this is someone saying that its bad to shit over peoples ‘work’ (i suppose the color of hard work is lilac), and then proceeds to basically shit over read the fucking hig while inserting a few ‘inspired’ quotes.
you just cant make this up. read the comments for a good laugh.
ps. i do make stuff. ship apps. design things. but since when is ‘you have to be a master chef to be critical of food’ a valid argument?
pps. i do hope i didnt hurt anyone with this blog, its really only made to— haha, really? i was pained to see so much crap on my favorite os and now i cant deal some of that pain right back at the people who cant spend a few minutes on a ui before submitting another four apps to the app store?
