In all fairness, I was referring to my own work, and IIRC I also
excluded complex productivity apps.
What other people do is up to them.
I almost never see tooltips in any app since it rarely occurs to me to
slow down what I'm doing to hover my mouse to find out whether or not
the designer has written a hidden description there. I usually just
click it and see what happens. If the action that happens is a
destructive one THEN it wasn't designed correctly. :)
