When I first saw the Accepted icon at the left, I interpreted it as being Accepted. So, I thought it was a bug. When I checked the answer online, I saw it wasn't accepted yet. So I accepted one of the answers, and the Accepted icon changed to the one seen at the right.

Given that, I think the green color is misleading. The site has gray Upvote, Downvote, and Accept icons. The app follows this, except for the Accept icon (which is green).

EDIT: Oh, wait. Looks like a duplicate of: Make accepted check more distinct from non-accepted check on own questions… On the other hand, I think they have different concerns. He focuses not having a checked icon for unaccepted answers, while I focus on the color. Please flag this as dupe, if you think it is.

    Wow, that's definitely a confusing UI...

    The concern is the same. The question was a bit mutilated because of pandering to the freehand circles crowd.
