YouTube employee outs Google Play Store redesign
It would seem that Google has been providing the new version of the Google Play Store to its own employees. We're not sure, however, that the idea was for Googlers to pass this information along to the public. How do we know that? It seems that Ms. Rivera's Google+ page has been taken down. Regardless, Android users should have their antenna up, looking for the update.

For years now, all we've been hearing from android fanboys is diatribe about "boring tiles", so I can't stop laughing now that google is taking a simplistic approach toward design.

same with glass backs... (nexus 4, xperia Z.. ).
Fandroids (2010): HA! you have a glass back so stupid, gonna break
Fandroids (2012): So beautiful.. best. idea. ever
though admittedly i'm a bit of a fandroid myself, i can see the irony.
I feel like the 3 dots, and swipe style interface was a bit of a jip off wp7. But i guess they're still essentially different.. in a sense

I've never seen a complaint about boring tiles. Stale design, maybe. Skeumorphism, maybe. I'm a minimalist. I like Google's approach. Microsoft also has the right idea.

...I think you mean, "We're not sure"
