Hey Joro

I'd prefer the "success" phone icon to be green - which is the general color
that indicates success, where on the other I cannot associate blue with
anything other than "cold". And the interior of those call-icons should
probably not be transparent.

Besides that, it's okay, but I think it could be a bit more "aggressive"
change (I know the Java/Swing implications too well, so I guess that's the
reason for the strong similarity). Maybe some stronger colors would change
it already, the grey is a bit overwhelming.

Regards,
Ingo

Yup. We explicitly didn't want substantial layout changes. We don't have
the time to implement this currently, so we decided we'd first start
with the icons and then move to improving general usability as time permits.

the grey is a bit overwhelming.

That's the mac version. Windows and Linux may well continue to be
different, as they currently are.

Hey Joro,

First, I very much like where this is going! Thank you for your efforts
so far!

A few comments from me as well:

1. I find the status selector background a bit confusing. It currently
seems as if it is clicked or toggled. I suppose I'd prefer we didn't
have the dark background there.

2. Does the gray bar at the bottom of the application have a role? If
not then do we really need it?

3. (Minor) I'd expect an incoming call (or a missed one for that matter)
to be depicted by the arrow going into the phone receiver and not away
from it.

4. I don't believe we can make the tool tips appear the way they do on
your mockups (where it says share full screen). I think the arrow head
may be a problem with Swing (Yana please correct me if I am wrong). I
guess the colour should be fine though.

That's all from me for the moment ... I'll probably have more coming
later though :slight_smile:

Again, I really like where this is going and just can't wait to see it
implemented :slight_smile:

Cheers,
Emil

I love the UI. But green is really the success color.
