Which of these will be the iOS 7 iBooks icon?
They all look good. I do like the simple one thoug, the one with just 2 white blocks
I strongly believe the first one as it's been patented.
I think it will be the first one but with a white circle around just like the iTunes and App store iOS 7 icons do. At least I hope it does, for consistency sake. Because all three store icons on Mavericks are also circular so I think that design cue will carry over to the iOS 7 icon.
And a bit unrelated, but iBooks really needs to become built in next year in iOS 8.
God, no, 50+ Mb I could use for music. They should really really built in Find My iPhone, though. I can't believe people won't download that one!
A 16GB iPhone and you're complaining about 50 MB?
If you were to set aside 3GB for iOS 7, and all you would have left is 13GB, iBooks would only take roughly .004% of your storage...
It will probably be the first one
Don't forget that 16 GB in advertise speak is less in actual technical speak (and reality) right from the get go.
Right, I understand that. But does it really make a difference if your measuring 50MB vs ~12-13GB?
You don't need to download find my iphone. Just turn it on in iCloud. Technically it's already built into the phone.
The nomenclature for the "advertise speak" is accurate. The OS 'technical speak' is invalid.
Blame Apple. They advertise using correct standard nomenclature. Then somewhere in their software, they turn around and use G-(Giga-), standard universal metric prefix for 1000^3, to represent 1024^3.
3rd is the most appealing to me.
Everyone does it, it's not something that Apple is responsible for.
Irrelevant what everyone else does. They make the choice, they are responsible for their actions.
It would be silly for them to do it differently from the rest of the industry as it would only cause confusion among customers and can likely end up hurting Apple rather than helping them in anyway. The whole industry needs to change, but that's not likely to happen, at least not anytime soon.
I believe #1 - also think it looks good and is very 'clean'. The gradient is more subtle than Apple generally uses in iOS7. I'd prefer even subtler gradient
I don't think a circle one, since iBooks is not only a store, it's an app for reading content you could have synced elsewhere.
I really hope there is a circle. Why else did they make the icon in Mavericks circular? It just makes sense to keep things completely consistent across both OSes.
#1 fits best with iWork apps for iPhone/iPad icons
I like the 3rd one... First one is too simple, doesn't even look like a book and the second is ruined by the black lines.
the 1st or the last. love the simplicity of each.
They haven't so far, so why start now?
Too simple. You're looking at it knowing it's iBooks, so it makes sense. Imagine not knowing what you're looking at all, then it wouldn't be obvious that it's about books.
I'm going with the third icon, looks nice.
The app icons are all labeled. Someone new to iOS sees the simple iBooks icon, sees beneath it 'iBooks', and from then on knows that that icon is iBooks. The simpler the icon/colour scheme of an icon, and the fact that each one has a unique colour, the easier it is to spot it amongst all the icons. I've noticed this since using iOS7. I used to have trouble locating icons, but now they jump out at me. I don't even have to search. My peripheral vision catches sight of the icon's colour, and I've found it in an instant.
It doesn't even look like a book.
The 3rd one is the obvious choice.
