Is there anyway to stop the volume indicator to stop from showing up in the middle of a video when u adjust it? I just hate when I'm watching a video and have to adjust the volume, it covers the whole screen and u can't see the video. So u have to rewind.

You can pause it before turning it up or down.

Sometimes it doesn't appear, but I can't determine a pattern. Mostly happened when I tried to adjust my volume while watching Youtube videos.

The first time I watched a full screen YouTube video using iOS 8 I noticed it didn't show up. I thought 'damn, awesome! finally gone!'

That was the only time it didn't show up on screen. :rolleyes::mad::mad:

So you should downgrade and upgrade again every time you want to watch something. This way it won't bother you anymore :D

One app I use does not show the onscreen volume indicator- OPlayer. When in fullscreen mode on my iPad at least, it doesn't show up.

Come on, Apple! Get with the program. :mad:

Isn't it just utterly amazing how the ONE place that transparency would make sense functionally & aesthetically is the one place that Jony Ive's crackpot team of UI designers has not enabled transparency????? They think transparency belongs underneath programs that don't need it and sometimes results in confusion as to whether that vague red shading underneath a few words on the screen is an error or signifies something....or that the borders of OS programs need transparency which just results in a scattered mess of feedback. What is wrong with Apple ever since Steve died?

Therapy. Makes me feel better to acknowledge openly how bad iOS UI has been since 2013's iOS7. And, the hope & a prayer that Timmy reads my particular post and it's the straw that breaks the camel's back for him to wake up and fire Jony Ive who took 4 years to fix this issue which is one of 1,000 issues he's brought when he and his team invented his lousy iOS7 UI, which bled over into poisoning not only OS but also virtually all of web design that's infatuated with too much white space and light-colored font for some inexplicable reason. :)

Aha! Didn't know. OK, I appreciate the comment. Is there any area of written-unwritten courtesy rules to follow?

Thx!
