Show Application installation progress

It is frustrating for an app to be installing and you don't know how the progress is. It would be nice instead of having the spinning light, to have the light filling up, or other beautiful design. At least then you have an idea of how the installation is progressing.

thanks, N

Might be cool to have it in the notifications center.

The problem is that under normal circumstances this isn't needed or even useful and will just clutter the UI. I know nyonglema's use case from his other posts and in his case the progress indicator makes perfect sense.

My idea would be: Print the % within the spinning circle, but only start after a given time (say, 5 or 10 seconds). Most people would never see the the progress information then, but in case of a slow connection, it'll kick in soon enough to keep you informed.

I think @ossi1967's suggestion is pretty good.

@ossi1967 that is a perfect design, because only after that amount of time are you starting to get worried and ask yourself what's going on!

I also agree with @ossi1967's suggestion ... it is better.
