Google needs to seriously rethink its design!

In have no idea where they came from, nor do I know how they got so popular; but shadows have apparently started to sneak into Google's apps. Okay, I know if only one app that they have been used in, but its rather alarming that something like this is considered a good choice by one of the big 3 (Apple, Microsoft, Google in case you didn't know). Seriously, look at this:


Not only did they use shadows, but they didn't even bother to make them look good..... or right!

Seriously, Google, step your design game up! With Apple and Microsoft doing what they're doing, you can't GI making ugly designs like this. Maybe I'm overreacting, but I expect better from Google
