Today I’ve upgraded to the new Ubuntu version 12.04 Precise Pangolim and I found that some UI needs to be updated to 2012 year!
Missing tooltips in the “Dash Home”
Basically when an UI is intended to mouse point usage it should show tooltips when you hover over some button. The “Home”, “Files”, “Music” and “Video” icons are well understood, but the “Apps” icon makes no sense… To solve this when you hover over those buttons it should appear a tooltip like “Show Applications”/”Show Vídeo Collection”…
Missing visual feedback when opening apps outside the Launcher bar
Ok this is another weird ( I say weird, because it’s weird that in 2012 things like this still happen) issue on the UI, that don’t show any type of feedback to the user while he is waiting for the app to launch. Loading indicators are a standard and they are a standard for a reason, don’t you think?
