    ....IS SO MUCH FREAKING BETTER IN PERSON THAN DURING THE KEYNOTE.

    When I was watching earlier I thought...ew...but it looks a million times better in practice than on the demo

    The Apple Music / News / App Store design language is beautiful, not sure why people complain so much about it.

    Is the iTunes Store the same or got a makeover as well?

    I’m not a fan of the new massive design. I have a smaller phone for a reason, but it’s more of a functional item compared to my iPad.

    One thing I don’t like now is on the app page, the banners for Editor’s Choice and Essentials apps doesnt blend into the icon and create a unique page for that app.

    Minor gripe but still.

    On the iPhone SE it's just way too big :)

    Do Devs have to pay Apple to be featured there because as it is they are wasting a lot of space and most people will probably not bother to scroll down further than 5 of those "cards" before switching to another tab in the navigation lol

    You think this looks good? It think it looks ridiculous. Huge waste of space and it serves just no purpose. Reminds me of tabloid-style newspapers (and not in a good way).

    I was referring to those three apps in specific. That of course looks stupid.

    Reminds me of the early 2000s when websites had these huge Tahoma headers.

    For in an app like this, regardless of the screen size, it just seems completely out of place.

    Jep. As if the <h1> CSS style is broken and the line-break and font size is overridden with the browser default. And they are doing this across the system, even introduced some Cocoa Touch APIs for it so that developers can do this too.

    Well the good thing based on this screenshot, esthetics apart, is that the Control Center will finally be customisable!

    The new "design language" is disaster. It's absolutely horrible and KALLT shows it pretty clearly. My god, where is old, good Apple with a good taste of design.

    Skeumorphism was never good taste of design.

    I'm huge fan of flat design, Rogifan, I'm talking about UI/UX on Music app or Control Center settings panel.

    That's your opinion. Menu-wise I prefer iOS 7 design. But App icons, Music Player, Apple stock apps and over all Apps' designs in general, I 100% prefer skeumorphism!

    I think Apple is trying to "unify" the experience across devices, not realizing that many of us want the amount of content on our screen to be relative to the screen size versus being more than less the same across devices.

    I haven't used the new App Store a lot. However, I do like the new design. It is much more refined, in my opinion.

    It did that for me for ages too. But it worked eventually. It could be it got confused by me having separate iCloud & iTunes Apple IDs. I logged out of both and back in before it started working properly

    Beautiful? It's a massive waste of space.

    I can see the newspaper design can be useful on iPad, but Apps are not a freaking newspaper, especially on PHONE.

    I’m wondering if this will help developers that need it. I find this new app giving far fewer apps to scroll through than the previous version. Doesn’t that mean that the little guys get even less attention?

    I love the asthetics. Makes my screen feel a lot smaller though...

    How come there isn't an option to alphabetize past purchases, which would make it easier to search the list? If there is an option, I have never found it.
