via Echofon in reply to secretxergin

It’s always been clear how elements should look/behave; now it’s much less rigid. But I’ll wait for developer.apple.com to get back up.

via Echofon

My biggest concern is the “air” of the new look; I fear it’ll foster sloppy app design. iOS’s UI strength has been consistency/constraint.

via Echofon

That said, now that the “new-look-adrenaline-rush” has passed, I have to say that it’s still pretty rough around the edges. THOSE ICONS. D:<
