    I like the overall look but theres too much white in there. Definitely need some more colour...

    They still look better then the iOS 7 ones ;)

    I like the look of it, but from a usability standpoint, they are worse than the actual ones because they are harder to differentiate; they're mostly all white, and the unnecessary bits of color in Settings, Compass, Phone, Mail, Safari, Music, etc. have no use. The color used in iOS 7 is used more intelligently, I prefer the actual iOS 7 icons.

    I am worried iOS7 will look like poo on the black iPhone. There have been no photos of the new OS on a black phone...

    Honestly, ANY Safari icon looks better than this preschoolers nightmare they have shipped with the beta. It is just plain fugly.

    I'd rather stick with the stock iOS7 icons if those were my choices.

    I think theyre the same icons but with a different colour scheme. Look you just coloured in the inside of the settings app. This doesn't change the icon design suckyness

    Not as bad considering you've hid almost half the stock icons.

    I feel like if apple went that route. Everyone would have an easier transition to ios7.

    So Game centre, Passbook, Vodeos and Maps make almoust half of the stock Apps? Some people here would wish that :)

    Good maths anyway ;)

    Weather, maps, videos, notes, reminders, game center, stocks, game center, newstand, passbook, compass, calculator, etc..

    When they're all hidden in folders. No, it doesn't look as bad.

    The biggest and most important change you made in your mockup was drop shadows for every icon.
    Add drop shadows for the text too, and you've got yourself a deal.

    I personally prefer apple's, except for safari. Yours look good though.

    Game centre twice? Nice :D

    Anyway, they are organised acordingly based on their relavance. I won't have an App I don't often use on my first page (and not based on how icons look like, something I don't care much about)
    Becides, most apps you mentioned are in a folder, main page.

    I will never understand this sentiment. Your monitor is probably surrounded by black, your MacBook probably has a black bezel, and your TV is likely black.

    MacRumors is totally clashing with my Dell display right now. :rolleyes:

    You didn't fix the settings or camera icons.

    I do think these are really nice, however, I still don't think these are the kind of designs Apple would implement, they are the kind of thing that you would get in a jailbreak theme for winterboard or something.

    I do especially like the messages icon though

    He should have used the same wallpaper on both to compare them! Not one bright and one dark!

    Exactly my point. They're all hidden in folders which is why I agree with you that your home screen now doesn't look to bad now.
