    So I just loaded up the newest leak and am so disappointed to see that the loading animation icon has been changed from the cool BlackBerry squircle dance to a boring grey circle resembling the old blue one. So lame. What's the deal?

    I agree. The squircle was the best but even the old blue circle is better than the new old and gray, android circle.

    I understand there trying to make everything more (dam what's that word that means like unified across the platform), but ****, don't bring the android one here, bring ours there (on the runtime)!

    I'd say it's still a fair sight better than the blue circle (which was gross and dated).

    Here it is btw:

    I prefer the blue circle over the gray one. The gray one is boring and blends in. The blue one at least give life and sticks out.

    A blue squircle would be my new best friend

    The blue is oft-derided when it comes to the hub theming. I'd rather have a monochrome OS, though.

    But yeah, the squircle was cool and unique. Genuinely the only recognizable loading icon since the apple beach ball imo.

    Also, I had the same problem with the keyboard in 10.1 and 10.2. It used to be big and blue, and now it's a boring and small garbage green color.

    I'm pretty darned disappointed they dumped the squircle - it was a little thing, sure, but it was just so awesome and unusual. I'd dearly like to speak to the guys at BlackBerry who decided it was "not intuitive enough" - what the hell were they thinking?

    Seriously. It's details like the squircle loader that will make BB10 in the eyes of consumers. And it was a design that wasn't off-putting for business users. That's not easy to do. Personality without being overbearing. Why mess with that?

    Also, I agree with it was the best loader. Why they changed, because Thor felt like being himself that day

    Why hasn't the crackberry staff brought this up, yet? Kind of a glaring issue that should be addressed by BlackBerry fans and get seen by BB10 devs.

    I realize how small and silly it is to make a big deal about a loading icon, but I'm really upset about it for some reason.

    Everyone remember that you can go to the Berry Leaks channel and buy a T shirt with the Squircle on it.
