Why iOS 7 Is A Masterpiece of Design

CultOfMac: "My first impression on seeing iOS 7 on my iPhone was: What is this, a My Little Pony theme?
But after scrutinizing, analyzing, deconstructing and living with the new version, I’m ready to declare iOS 7 an unambiguous masterpiece, a stroke of genius, really.
That may sound like a weird thing to say about a fruity, copycat platform that crashes constantly. But it’s true, and I’ll tell you why."

At first it seems a little overwhelming, but in comparison, iOS 6 now looks very dated and stale. I actually love iOS 7 now. Mike is not retarded, just overstating things. But it is a beautiful interface.
The icons do need work. The icons need to look more "iconic". That's the what the word literally means, but some look generic and worse, ... half ass.

iOS 7 a masterpiece...who said that! Its just a product of best features from android, windows and blackberry os

shhh dont let the apple fans know that.
according to them apple creates everything...its android, WP and BB that copy them.

I agree, with iOS 7, Apple copied Android and other platforms. It's true, and there's no point in denying that. But, honestly, Android itself, as an OS is a blatant copy of iOS. So... It's not quite one-sided. It seems this business works that way.

Ooops, it seems we've got to one of them right here.

I'm really disappointed by the iOS 7 preview. On the whole its just a re-skin. Where is Apple's answer to live tiles or widgets found on Windows Phone and Android? we still have basically the same front end as its been for many years, very little option to really personalise your phone. I say that as an iPhone 5 and iPad 3rd Gen owner.

Except now the icons in iOS 7 are extremely ugly.

Nucky1947d ago

Exactly - Apple's answer. That's all they can do. Make *answers* to Android's new features.

And the Android itself was answer to what...? Original iPhone iOS? Yup.

Exactly man. People don't realize that the original iPhone came out before Android did. They both feed off each other. The competition drives innovation and we all win. I like them both.
