[liberationtech] Bring some UX/UI help to open secure apps

I have talked about this in the past, we need to make things look nice otherwise they are not going to be used and they lose their security advantages. I will give a case and point, I recently revoked my old GPG key because it's been active for over a year and I know that my computer has been out of my sight with customs agents a lot lately. I haven't generated a new key because then I have to open up a terminal and go through the process of making a key and then saving my key, etc.

If I had a mail client with GPG integrated told me "hey your key is a year old! do you want to have it recreated?" I could click yes, and have the GUI guide me through key creation, it would update all my mail settings and key servers and life would be good.

Because it doesn't do that, I have been not signing my emails for a week or so now waiting to "get around" to setting it up. 

I use Skype instead of Jitsi, and honestly when I need to have a conference with someone I tell them "you should just download Skype", I don't want to have to guide them through a program that was clearly developed by engineer brained people


TL;DR - Shiny things make me use the product more, if someone creates a crowd sourcing campaign for designers I would contribute.
