    Thats not ugly, a kind of 3-D loader which is looking good. – Praveen Mar 12 '14 at 10:46
  • @Praveen yes I know developers has tried to animate it, but then why they have applied to this only? Whatever it is, it looks ugly in many devices. – Paresh Mayani Mar 12 '14 at 11:15
  • I don't have this on my version. Do yet have more details? – Pureferret Mar 12 '14 at 13:15

I think this is happening because the ProgressBar has padding set only on the top and bottom, skewing it depending on how your phone's native UI was displaying them. I changed it from being padding to margins, which should fix this issue. Look for it in 1.0.22.
