Hot new Color app
I think these icons could be improved to prevent confusion. The center one is powerful, so I (safely) assume it’s the *action* button (take a picture). UPDATE: After several minutes of play, the center icon is also used for joining groups! Doubling up on functionality, eh Color?
Here’s an interesting interaction design decision: Color, in my opinion, is failing the play/pause problem. Should a button’s icon be a status or an action? Color chose icons to represent status, but those icons are also used for navigation. I think this leads to a poor user experience.
