So, I understand that Google tests out a lot of designs. But when will we finally get some consistency across the Google Apps? I constantly feel like I’m a beta tester.
Here, if you zoom in, you can see the action bar (where it’s refreshing). On Gmail (leftmost) the bar starts off slow and cycles to the right, and it’s blue.
In the second screenshot (Google Drive), the refresh bar is blue, but the sections of the updating bar are the same size, unlike in Gmail.
The Google + app is probably the biggest offender in this case. The update bar is multicolored (which I’m okay with, since they are the G+ colors) but they are also evenly spaced. Not to mention, the bar is at least 1 dip higher than the other two bars.
It feels like the developers of these different Google apps don’t communicate with each other.
