[Softpedia] iOS 7 Said to Be “Very, Very Flat,” May Unsettle Some Users - Page 4

post #31 of 61
Microsoft isn't doing so well with metro. Either apple is taking a big risk or they want to popularize the theme to give Microsoft and boost and hurt android.

In my opinion they are taking a risk and I don't think it will pay off. Apple isn't getting a lot of love lately.

Just curious, how many of you guys have spent a significant and unbiased approach to metro? I honestly HATED it (and still do on the desktop), but after some time with it, I actually don't mind it at all.


Also, why does the word Penis show up to the right of this textbox as an item? rolleyes.gif

Seriously people get paid to create such piece of crap? What happened in MS and Apple lately? Is it a virus or something? Who decided to make cartoonish minimalism a trend? It's not cool its ungly. I hope Google will not follow this stupidity. Waiting to see real screenshots from the actual thing.

Oh boy...I think the site's getting hit with a new kind of spam bot....The site overall is starting to slow down too.

Flat color scheme really is a subjective matter. Most people Find the Metro look pleasing, not ugly. I have no hate for Metro, the UI is actually not bad at all and I could not call it any uglier then the current iOS in my eyes. In metro the tiles are nothing but large icons, well more of a icon/widget.

I welcome the change, nothing apple can do to make it worse as it is already a aged POS atm. Only thing holding it together it apps and apple's sheep.

I like the search just like I like to CMD+Space and type to search an launch in OSX or Windows key and type to search and launch in Windows.

Apps make a mobile OS like it or not..

I read not to long ago that there is an anti-trust investigation going on about the iTunes app store. With some luck Apple will be forced to open iOS up which will really give it an edge in the app department.

Just because the article says it looks "as flat as Metro", doesn't mean it is going to look like Metro. I'm all for design changes - Jony Ive is a talented designer and I don't think he will come up with something that specifically looks like Metro. You'll see. I'm not an Apple fanboy by any long shot, but I know that Jony would not make it resemble Metro. He is all for getting rid of the skeumorphism (bye bye leather Reminders app & OS X Calendar....ugh) and I'm glad the previous Lead Designer got the boot.

Needless to say, excited to see what iOS 7 looks like. It's in need of a refresh.

Second this. I don't even click the dock - I would much rather CMD + Space.

I like this concept. I'm hoping Apple and Ive are designing something similar.

Except that concept more or less looks like metro themed ios6 icons. The widget drawer looks interesting though.
