Google shoud hire Apple’s designers

Are you a Google fanatic? Do you like their products (Gmail, Picasa, Google Docs, etc.)? Google is developing new products so fast it’s hard to keep up. I have one suggestion for them though. Hire some designers from Apple.

Google doesn’t pay enough attention to the user experience. They seem to feel that as long as the product works, that’s good enough. Take Gmail for example. Doesn’t it seem dull? They don’t space the messages from the headers very well. The first line is the header and then one space and you’re into the message. Apple would never do it that way. You know how Apple makes it so obvious where things are. They present you with exactly what you need when you need it. That is what Google is lacking in most of their products.

I love Google, but they need to pay attention to the user experience. Hire some people from Apple and you’ll be set!
