"Not every app has to be blue"
Really love this!
I'd argue that not everything needs to stand out, and the fact that HipChat blends in might be a positive thing to some people.
I'm currently using Sqwiggle for comms within my team, which is worth checking out as I think it's pretty well designed.
Sqwiggle looks great for distributed teams – love the inline code view. Price seems a bit ridiculous though.
Big fan of Tom's work though, might try it out with Hack Design if it becomes more affordable.
Now if only we could change the font on the lobby room type dividers....
Such a simple change makes all the difference! Thanks Wells.
However, pet peeve is the weird shape of the speech bubbles - they feel like they shouldn't be as tall (i.e. ovals instead of circles). Still, not really a dealbreaker, just being picky ;)
Haha I thought I was the only one who thought the circles looked too wierd.
