    I got my Incredible almost two weeks ago and haven't modified it in any way other than switching to LauncherPro instead of Sense. I've seen these buttons (highlighted in red in the screenshots) in various places; Used for selection of a single item or as "enabled" or "disabled", they just don't look right. Especially in Astrid, they don't look like they do in the screenshots from the market...what are these buttons called (they're not radio buttons or checkboxes, so I'm assuming they have a name)? Does this happen to anyone else?
    Note: For some reason, the button in JuicePlotter looks fine.

    They are radio pop buttons but with their own icons of course.

    Hmm okay, I'd never heard of "radio pop buttons". When you say "with their own icons", what do you mean? Are they not a standard button?

    I've found the specific name in the Android documentation, they are simply "toggle buttons": ToggleButton | Android Developers

    However, I still don't know why they look weird.
