Hiya,

I just downloaded and started using Miro (www.getmiro.com). I found out that it actually works quite good, but it looks really out of place in a Gnome desktop.

Is there somewhere where I could send some suggestion and mockups? I would file a Launchpad bug but this really looks like an upstream work, and there doesn't seem to be a bug tracker on their page.

Thanks, I just sent the suggestion: http://bugzilla.pculture.org/show_bug.cgi?id=10706

I have made a mockup of how the app could look:

Which one do you guys prefer? That, or the current interface?

That does fit GNOME better, but it's a cross-platform app. Maintaining both versions could be taxing.

The Idea is to use native widgets for the different operating systems,is it not?

I believe right now they use 1 thing for all platforms and tough-cookies if it doesn't fit in.
