TrailingDots 12 Posted February 16, 2015 Share Posted February 16, 2015 How much longer must we suffer through the low contrast look that Evernote has foist upon us? While the seemingly gray fonts and icons may appear pretty, working with them all day long get exhausting. The low contrast text takes _much_ longer to read and comprehension suffers. Scanning a page for specific information becomes a challenge. The irritation factor increases when attempting to view the low contrast icons that can disappear unless the mouse finds itself on that portion of a page. The ability of Evernote to run on multiple platforms is a great attraction. BUT - the UI from platform to platform displays great variation. Switching from platform to platform with the gray text and icons can become a game of frustration. I regularly use a desktop and and iPad as well as an iPhone. Working with these radically different designs does not make my day. Apparently Evernote does not consider readability nor usability as useful. A website's content is meant to be read. Content does not equal illustration!!! Aesthetics are important but are not the ultimate goal of design. PLEASE view your UI from the user's perspective and NOT that of some artist. Let's put an end to this low-contrast, light gray nonsense and use typography for its purpose: Making TEXT READABLE.
