My 2 cents about everything!

iOS 7 Voice Memos Challenge

Is Apple Flat Design a reference by default?

We were joking with my friend JC and arguing with Anthony N. about iOS7 new design. Such design were being tagged as “polarizing”. I have to admit that we can say so!

Debate on flat design hash come in town now and will probably be kept open for a while. People will goes with who were right or not right about taking this direction before Apple.

Flat design well initiated by Microsoft have now been kinda legitimated by Apple. I have event heard recently that a genius designer were already on this FD move for 6 months and thus in advance on he’s time! Meaning in advance of people/Apple Time. Indeed, for our great pleasure Apple is still ruling digital mobile world despite of it’s minority market share vs Samsung/Androïd. Then still nowadays, any new Apple design is automatically becoming a reference.

Biggest question is “would Apple Flat Design become THE reference whatever the chosen design?”
