Just thought I'd pass along another potential issue another current designer/dev is saying about the iOS 7 status bar blending into the content area. Once again this echos the over feeling many in the developer community that the feel of the new OS is great but the look has much to be desired in areas. Quote below from designer of Vesper. "iOS 7 unifies the status bar and navigation bar, with mixed results. There are no longer any lines or markings of any kind between the status bar (carrier, time, battery status), and an apps navigation control buttons. This new area is a collection of unrelated items occupying a single space. A jumbled, confusing mess that will lead to third-party apps looking terrible and users wondering what the hell is going on." "What makes this so infuriating is that the status bar was a solved problem. The black bar at the top is hardware at best, and OS information at worst. Now Apple has taken an OS-level design problem and made it an app-level design problem. As a designer, I now need to account for the visual weight of these items, and theyre completely beyond my control." Link to the whole article. http://betterelevation.com/2013/07/22/current-status/ Please read and make thoughtful comments/arguments. Ill save all the "its a BETA" people the time by stating this is the time to discuss it, not after release to millions and its a potential mess. The BETA process is all about making things better.
