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.

    I enjoyed the show on iOS 7. I didn’t know I was interested in the difference between skeuomorphic vs. digitally authentic until you talked about it. I hope Johnny Ives’ Knighthood, accolades, and awards haven’t gone to his head. I like the skeuomorphic look. I also like textures and round corners. I’m not sure I’m going to like the new flat look. It appears almost cartoonish. I’ll reserve final judgment, though, until the new iOS is available to the masses.

    I like the MacCast Members shows with your deep dives. I know coming up with ideas is hard work. Whatever comes to your mind is probably going to make for a good show. Like this one, on iOS 7 and the fundamentals of design. It was a very interesting show.

    Keep up the good work.
