comment Is Apple's or Google's meaning of the three-horizontal-bar icon more popular?
@Aadaam +1 for bringing in the physical device history - very interesting. Seems like the lines/dots may have been more for grip/traction at first - developing into an affordance over time.

You may want to rephrase the question to ask something closer to "how to best indicate re-orderability". A popularity phrased question does not really indicate the challenge you are confronting and may cause downvotes or closing.

comment Psychology behind $0.99 for paid apps, but $1.00 for donation apps?
I would posit that anyone who donates on a regular basis could self-validate this assertion - it resonates with me on a deep level. We may have to look past UX to fundraising psychology for research to support it. I would enjoy digging a bit deeper also, but I'm on vacation without a reliable internet connection.

Thanks for the clarification of the "Dark Pattern" definition. Maybe we should call these patterns "Fart Patterns": people do it, it stinks, but there's no real longterm harmful consequences.
