    Haven't you heard? They're called "conversational UIs" and they're the next big thing. Instead of clicking stupid buttons that trigger specific actions like some kind of idiot, you can now actually type out what you want to do! Just like you're text messaging with your BFF!

    And in most cases, the app will actually understand your intent, and offer you relevant options. Sure, these UIs take more time, are ambiguous, and hurt discoverability, but on the plus side: haven't you seen the movie "Her"?
