    Apple should buy these icons from the designers that put these out on Dribbble.

    Nice. Don't like the first one (clock), it's not flat enough.

    Those do look nice, While I don't mind what I've seen in iOS7 (I'm not running the beta), I will say there is room for improvement for those icons.

    Also, in before "do we really need another icon thread"—Yes, we do because I like them! :mad: Aaaargh!

    I like the switches for the Settings icon (I'm assuming its for Settings). The current one makes no sense to me!

    That's for Control Center presumably?

    I was looking for icons that had a similar style as the iOS 7 icons. These icons have a cartoonish, colored painted look. Louis icons are great but might be too simple for the iOS 7 UI?!

    Not going to happen so we can stop dreaming now.

    What strikes me the most odd about the iOS 7 icons is that typically I find other people's mock-ups and suggestions to be unappealing, but with the icons every time I see one of the mock-ups from Dribbble, I almost always prefer them. There's just something off about them; I think it's mostly how they are inconsistent from app to app and don't all mesh with the design of the OS.

    So? There's only so much you can discuss about an unreleased piece of software and picking apart and evaluating the design is one of those things. No one asked you if it would happen, or to dream with them, or to read and post in this thread.

    Yes it will, as soon as the jailbreak comes out.

    Of all the words one could use to describe Louie's icons, cartoonish isn't one I'd expect; they use simple gradients and solids with clean glyphs, which is exactly what Apple has done so far.

    In a couple cases, the icons you chose are a step backwards. The Clock icon is glossy and shadowed, and the Camera icon is more complex.

    I agree. Louie's icons would be darn-near perfect fit for iOS 7.

    I didnt refer to Louis icons with the first paragrap. I referred to the ones I picked from Dribbble. Louis are beautiful but might be too simple, modern for a OS that will last for many years. I want icons that are playful, fun and full of color.

    Just curious as to why you didn't add this to the 94285728528 other threads discussing icons and felt it warranted it's own thread?

    I really like the reminders, settings and camera icons. The cam icon would be great with just the lens on it (like it looks on the phone).

    The rest I couldn't care less for.

    Oh, sorry. To be honest, I prefer the approach to design taken in iOS 6—at least for the icons. I actually agree with your preferred attributes, but I think Louie nailed it in respect to staying true to Apple's iOS 7 design ethos (which I'm not the biggest fan of).

    Because FUN! :p

    I prefer the original iOS 7.

    One thing is to design the OS icons from scratch, and other is to copy and fix the icons Apple made, that's not design.

    How come I haven't seen any original perception of how iOS 7 icons should look like, damn, not even different colors...

    No one said they were doing anything but building on Apple's design. If others can iterate and improve on Apple's design, so can...Apple.

    No one is suggesting that Apple scrap the icons altogether. The colors and many other elements are fine. They just need some polish and consistency, which is what is being done here.

    If I recall a lot of these designs were coming out before Apple even unveiled their redesign so that isn't a fair assessment. The fact that they look similar just means that the people had similar taste who created them.

    I like the new reminders app icon from the original post. The thing I can't stand about the iOS 7 reminders app icon is that the lines go off the edge. This one just shortens them up a bit and it looks worlds better. Just my opinion though.

    I like Safari icon, because current one is ugly.

    Agreed, and I can't stand the new design of the reminders app overall.

    Louis hit it out of the park with these designs. Some might call these flatomorphs superior to Apple's. I wouldn't. Ive is the man with the plan and I believe he will make sure the design quality has no depth.
