Sometimes I have a thought for the Android team when they realize again and again that Twitter, Facebook and most of big major companies are just pushing unfinished and horrible applications to the customers.. It just requires a look to the attached pictures
Picture 1: Overdraw in Twitter.
Picture 2: Twitter tablet UI.
Picture 3: Facebook Menu button of shame, and splashscreen.+Reto Meier

(and way more, one post is not enough to name them all) are just spending hours everyday to teach us great design tricks and share awesome source code, slides, knowledge and passion.
Their work is so great that it is nearly impossible to miss the basics. Every Android app should look great
-> With at least a basic tablet UI
-> Without overdraw
-> Without menu button of shame
-> Without a back button that is more shame than a menu button of shame).
They work really hard for that and they are just ignored by these bigs companies...
I don't understand what's happening, but It would be very hard to contain my anger if I was one of them..
(and +Jean-Baptiste Quéru
is the one that also look at horrible things everyday, but on some other huge issues)
By creating crappy apps, you are not just hurting the user, you are also hurting the hours of work of all these people and you are going to make them sad and nervous!Credits for the pictures:+Juhani Lehtimäki +Mitchell Eve +Android Police
