    I would buy any software Forstall makes for iOS.

    iOS7 looks good on paper but usability suffered immensely.

    I'm just excited seeing that Forstall's (presumably) 12 month silence clause might be breaking, and it'll be interesting to see what his next steps are.

    Hopefully start his own company which is later acquired by Apple. Like Steve.

    You will whine like everyone else how it uses skeumorphism and doesn't conform to flat iOS7.

    I hate iOS7. Some interesting ideas, but shamefully badly executed UX.

    I'd jump ship to a Forstall version of iOS in an instant. As that's obviously not happening, it'd be great to use apps that amount to more than text on a white background.

    Come on Scotty, no need to hide behind an alias to vent your anger, just let it go. ;)

    Cool. I'd love an app where everyone asks for a control center for simple tasks and then have him ignore it for 6 years. Sounds awesome.

    Without Scott Forstall would the jailbreak community exist?

    The icon wouldn't fit on the home screen. It also wouldn't support any of the iOS 7 features, making it very old-fashioned and limited, just like iOS 6.
