Google’s Director of Android User Experience, who was recently dubbed one of the top 50 designers shaping the future by Fast Company, admitted on his Google+ page yesterday that Android functions at only a fraction of what he has envisioned for the mobile operating system.
According to Matias Duarte:
It’s true, we still have a lot of work to do. Personally I feel like I’ve gotten only about a third of the way to where I want to be with regards to consistency, responsiveness, and polish. Better get back to work!
Duarte’s UI influence spans from Android 3.0 Honeycomb to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
