    I know, it's getting old, but here's another mock-up for iOS7 in case you are interested. I built this from scratch and tried to get rid of things I didn't like i.e. different gradients and incosistencies. Also, I wanted the design to be flat but a bit more detailed. Maybe you don't care at all (@mod: you can happily close my thread if you are annoyed by this posting), but I was interested in your feedback. I know there are still flaws and it's not perfect of course.. :)

    I'm not quite understanding the point of a mockup, when the betas of iOS 7 are already out in abundance and actual screenshots have already been posted?!?

    Looks good!

    Only a few things I'd change up: the green for the phone/messaging icons, the photos icon, and the settings icon. But good job man...

    I like some of the ideas behind your icons, there are other parts I don't like. For example, your Settings gears don't look like gears and why does your Gamecenter have a C shape made out of squares? Some of your icons use dropshadows other do not. What are the three vertical lines to the left of your wifi bar? Why is there more space to the right of the three lines than to the left?

    I like it! I would, however, suggest putting a bit more color in the videos and reminders.

    The "C" is for "Center" and the shapes are the same as used in the game "Tetris", which is a very popular game. So, it's a "Game" that forms a "C" for Center. :)

    I used dropshadows where I liked them, it's still more consistent then the actual iOS 7 icons, I think.

    The three lines represent the signal strength. I don't like the new circles, so I used squares. But this is not really important and made quick'n'dirty.

    ----------

    Well, the internet keeps on rollin'. :) Actually I wanted to represent all the different directions (like in the original compass meaning)

    I would take that design over the current iOS 7 one, good job mate.

    I share your bemusement.

    It seems that even after iOS 7 is downloaded in it's final form, folks will continue to post mock ups...of wonderful improvements, no doubt. :rolleyes:

    But Game Center is not a Tetris style game, nor is it a game at all. Its a social app. The App name begins with a "G", so the icon should not have a "C" as the symbol.

    Signal is indicated by five bars, not three and you don't see cellular strength at the some time as Wifi Strength.

    Yeah I can definitely see how multi-colored bubbles more clearly indicate that the app is a "Game Center". I'm not really sure how you don't understand the reasoning behind his icon. Apple themselves followed the same logic with the previous icon.

    Well the bubbles matches the new app's interface. The previous icon looked like a 4-1 game pack, not a social app for gamers. There is nothing about a C made from squares that says social app for gamers, the name of the app doesn't even begin with a C. The main issue I have with the current app icon is that its the only one that has a 3D feel to it.

    I think you mean iOS 8 mockup. iOS 7 is practically out the door.
