Yup. get used to it. Good cross platform design is non existant. Almost all graphic / artsy people use macs and iPhone, and base thier designs on that.
Android devs get stuck with the results. It will get better soon, as android now has constraint layouts, and better graphics/animation support.
@eygraber 😱! I'm not the only Android dev with 8 years experience! how was it, working on android 1.1 emulators, and the G1, with the sliding keyboard?
Designer based UI was always a pain for me. the only way to avoid it was to sit down with the designer and see whats up before it was presented and final.
@magicMirror I never used the emulators back then; too slow (and now I have trouble using them because...first impressions 😂).
I used the g1 for a bit, but when I switched to the Moto Droid it was like night and day.
This does happen to be the first time where the designer and I are on different continents...
I will never forget that red eye thing when the motodroid started up. HAL9000 much?
