Is the user interface really a legacy, confusing, old-fashioned, etc? If so, how should that be improved?
Or should I just ignore this and stick to the design goals (minimalistic, non distracting) ?
Or should there be more "bling-bling"?
I do not think you can get a higher rating. Even solid apps such as Fx file explorer has 4.4 compared to fairemail 4.6
So, ratings will be between 4 and 5 anyhow.
Gboard googles keyboard is 4.4, and Instagram which is probably the most used app at the moment is 4.5
Not sure what they are referring to.
You should ask them to show you examples of what they mean.
As hardly any app use animations (maybe some music apps may be the exception)
So they expect random images to pop up, with comments and stuff, video?. Then email app is not what they need.
FairEmail UI is great for email. So not sure what they want.
What is blingeddy blung?
I do like transparent theme, examples:
Not open source,
FX file explorer: https://forum.xda-developers.com/sho....php?t=1253399
If you are planning themes, then I suggest to take a look at how theme engines work so that changes to the overall design remains the same
Some apps have theme editors
, not sure how they work, though
However, I believe most theme engines such as CM engine and substratum do not work anymore due to changes in OS by goggles forcing root.
