I know these kind of circular ‘loading’ devices are very trendy.
But they should only be used when the delay is likely to be a couple of seconds maximum. They are absolutely shit at everything else.
I’ve just been faced with a screen which I know is trying to download some HD video, and I’ve got absolutely no idea how long I need to sit there for. At least a really untrendy horizontal loading bar or percentage indicator would let me know whether I’ve got time to make a cup of tea…
I know I shouldn’t get upset by this kind of thing. But I do.
