Figured but thought I'd ask. Think it'd be awkward to see such a minimalistic UI with a big shiny app icon in the middle or something.

I have to give you major credit for Newsstand. I had trouble with that on my own. You seem to have taken mine and Apple's and smash them together. It looks nice.

You can't be serious. S/he has a few hidden gems in there.

Those are absolutely beautiful. I couldn't figure out why everybody was so in favor of minimalism until I saw those. Wow!

Agreed. There seems to be a difference between being minimalistic and being primitive.

He can be serious; they must be very well hidden gems.

should take note, for me on iOS 7 game center is the worst icon, if I saw yours in a upcoming version, it would be welcomed

But it's a good example of where Apple simplifying icons doesn't seem to have been done to the brief (presuming simplification was part of it), personally I'd go for something like this for the camera -

*A little too skeuomorphic but it is obvious what it is in any language, flatten it out and put whatever colour gradient scheme you fancy et voila.

I have yet to see a redesign that I think is superior to Apple's version, however I enjoy seing them.

Personally I feel a lot of these are superior.
