Apple Ah, skeuomorphism - my favourite punching bag. Austin Carr has spoken to former Apple designers and people within the company, and they're all confirming there's a rift within Cupertino between people who want to move away from skeuomorphism, and people who want to retain it as much as possible, and even want to expand it. Since I've long hoped for Apple to ditch this "visual masturbation", as one former Apple designer calls it, I'm happy to learn not the entire company supports skeuomorphism.

I agree.

In a way Skeomorphism is just an excuse to do what ever the developer feels like.

Some of the jarring Metro-ish apps in the Play Store are just as bad as the brain dump Skeomorphic apps for Android.

Maybe Mr Forestal should produce some UI guidelines so at least the Skeu has some guidance.
