Mail.ru can report unread messages even when not installed, directly in the Play store

So apparently designer of this screen thinks that rules are more often deleted completely rather than turned on/off. Strange assumption, but who am I to argue with Google and its data-oriented approach?

Yes, Medium again. This one is funny though, notice how their banners cover 99% of the actual content. Agree, consent, register and get updates before you even have a chance to take a peek at what’s inside. It’s a miracle someone still uses it for blogging

Simple lesson: if you make columns, do not sort in rows. I repeat: DO. NOT. Sort top to bottom, that’s how columns work everywhere. That’s what makes them easy to scan. Apple should take note, Microsoft should too (they do that in Settings folder if I remember correctly)

This is Microsoft Outlook.

I'm in a folder which doesn't show up on the left (you have to click the "more" button). Because there's clearly not enough space to show more than three items there.

My account shows up as selected, but if you actually click it, it will show the "Inbox" folder. And I'm not in Inbox right now.

The top email is selected. However, the body of the email isn't displayed. Because it's obvious that a program whose primary function is to display emails shouldn't display emails. Instead, it should display some landscape photos instead. Yes, you have to click the email to display its contents.

It's a borderless window. So if you have a landscape photo as your desktop wallpaper, good luck figuring out what's Desktop and what's Outlook.

See that gear in the bottom *left* corner of the window? That's "Settings". It will obviously open a settings pane on the *right side* of the window. And the only way to close the pane on the *right* side of the window? It's to click the gear icon in the bottom left part of the window. Obviously.

In general, see those four icons in the bottom left corner? First one does nothing. Two of them start separate applications (contacts and calendar). And the fourth one opens a pane on the opposite side of the window.

How did ever get pass a QA and user testing stage? It's Microsoft. They can always do and be worse.

Ok, even I don’t really understand what’s going on here. Were cookies blocked or not?

My favourite app: Android File Transfer (yes it’s an official Google app). Every time I plug my phone for a charge, it pops up, says (in a modal popup) “No idea what I’m doing here” and closes. Whatevs ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I’m no Dieter Rams but I also want it to stop. Come on, it’s not even funny. Is this a content site or a banner shop?

Twitter has a fantastic error: Duplicate tweet. Basically when an app succedes to send your tweet but thinks it failed it will try again, only this time it’ll be properly rejected. They, somehow, pin it on me, like if I sent it twice. No, dear app, please figure your shit yourself

In case you like clicking on checkboxes (lots of them!) and making hard choices with incomplete information (do I want this? that? what does it even mean?), Massdrop got you covered
