A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Episode 157. I have been reading a number of articles from designers and user interface experts arguing over the design of iOS 7. The conversations have been fascinating and opened my eyes to what I think is a deeper understanding of what Apple is trying to achieve with the next generation of iOS. In this episode I share some of my discoveries and thoughts. Turns out there is a lot more here than a battle between skeuomorphic and “flat” (digitally authentic) design.
