App Store, nothing's going to beat that!
This. The Yahoo Weather app is the latest to replace a stock app on my 5. It is so fresh, so good-looking and has such a wealth of information it was a no brainer. I'm hoping this is somewhat like what Apple is up to.
Gmail/Chrome/Maps are all other apps that have replaced stock apps, just because they look and function sooo much better than the old worn-out stock apps.
I don't care what they do with iOS 7, as long as they make Safari snappier!!!!
Did you know that the volume knob in the music app changes its "reflection" if you move the phone/ipod around?
I hope we don't lose that when we go 2D with iOS 7.
For once I'm genuinely excited about an Apple update. Flat design is awesome, I've always hated gloss and reflections. Keep it simple!
This and switching Google Now for Siri (button wise) are some of the reasons I've jailbroken mine.
Last I checked, this site is called MacRumors.
While it's true that Windows 8 is very flat in that it lacks shine and gloss, I believe that the OS design they're describing is going to lack corners (unlike Windows 8 which is full of corners) and it'll also turn down the saturation (the way that OS X has slowly lost its shades of blue in favor of shades of gray.)
I'm in favor of iOS ditching some of its excess bubbliness. (Like notification pop ups.)
i hate the freaking pop up bubbles that have been there since the beginning and dont go with anything on the OS anymore. they need to be more "flat" and modern
The look is important, but not nearly as important as the functionality and ease of use, so it's good to hear they're not messing with that too much.
Any visual changes are welcome IMO, so bored of looking at the same icons and folders
Amen on the bubbles!
No, "copy and paste" definitely was.
I love the new Yahoo weather app. If this is the direction Apple goes in then home run.
Jailbreak your phone and make it easier to navigate...
I think if there's a new iOS UI, it wouldn't be all flat like Windows 8. While it should look good, it is horrible when in use. It is hard to tell where one place start and ends in an Outlook tablet app.
Majority of 3rd party apps don't have a "shiny or gloss" to them these days anyways, think Yahoo Weather App.
So I think the new UI will be flatter but not just a solid flatness like Windows 8.
I hate it when people claim there are no manuals...
First place I send people with new iOS gadgets
Bookmarks, last one, User Guide
Sorry they are not printed on paper.
Wrong! Clean and simple and easy to use, no silly distractions ("leather stitching" junk, etc.). This is a fundamental transition in human history. Apple will slowly take over the world with an integrated system and everyone will want to be on board, not left out with gimmicky "competitors."
It's similar to what Google Now looks like, and most of Google's products. No gloss, no gradients, mostly just solid colors. You can find some website examples here: http://fltdsgn.com/
How iOS looks right now is the opposite of flat.
Adults should never use color gradients in anything.
To be quite honest, I wish Apple would just let Yahoo's be the stock apps much like they did with Google Maps for so long. Difference being, they aren't competing with Yahoo here and Yahoo needs the mobile presence.
The Yahoo weather app is awesome
Some Apple developers went on vacation in Austria it seems
u have no idea how many people come to the store i used to work at as a student who asked me where the iTunes cd is cuz they cannot find it anywhere. i told them to download it from the apple page and they were like huh how do i find that? and this actually required people knowing that they need something called "itunes" thats a whole difference story
When will Samsung say they have been working on a flat design?
