'Fugly Android' Captures the OS's Bad Side

'Fugly Android' Captures the OS's Bad Side

Poor Android. Even after becoming the most popular smart phone OS in town, mean ol' aesthetes keep picking on its democratic design quirks.

The new Tumblr blog, Fugly Android, (we're guessing run by Apple fans) spotlights daily screenshots of some admittedly hideous Android homescreens and app interfaces. The unsightly displays, made possible by the Google-run platform's comparatively lax developer standards, amount to what Fugly Android calls "arguments for closed systems" like iOS.

Sure, democracy may not always be pretty; but at least it gets you Flash. Am I right?
