Considering round buttons
Buttons are currently squares with rounded corners. We have a lot of those similarly shaped elements within our interface. This can make them slightly hard to distinguish.
Research shows that humans are geared towards round elements. They are easier on the eyes and guide people's attention to them. Round shapes represent a fingerprint/press more naturally, which is what a button in essence is meant for.
Please note: "Trend": Google has been slowly converting to this in the latest gmail and android design updates as well.
Badges are currently considered to be all changed to be pill shaped. Next to them already being colored by default, it will make them stand out even more due to their round shape. (PS: This issue should not stop #138 (closed) from being completed and can be potentially changed later)
|A button||Labels (currently pill shaped)|
- Make buttons pill shaped to draw more attention to them
- Convert badges and labels to not use pill shapes
Badges blend in more with the rest of the information
