Don't care - don't like it ;)

In slightly more constructive criticism, AlexP and I were discussing it
earlier, and we've agreed on these points:

The slide out tabs on the WPS look like they should actually respond to a
swipe action. Clearly this isn't possible of course, since we don't support
swipe actions in the WPS yet, only touches. However, *because* that's what
looks like should happen *and* because it's on an android phone which
supports swipe actions in the majority of its other applications, it leads
you to try to swipe, and that normally ends up in the tab displaying, and
then you immediately selecting one of the items in it - almost certainly not
the one you want either.

Alex and I also both agree that the tab to adjust volume should be triggered
by a touch on the volume icon in the bottom left corner of the display, so
you can ditch the tab on the right of the screen.

We'll have more chats about it over the weekend.
