Apple "Sources have described iOS 7 as 'black, white, and flat all over'. This refers to the dropping of heavy textures and the addition of several new black and white user interface elements." I couldn't be happier.

Wait to see it

People realize these are just concepts right? Nothing in that article is iOS7.

Anyway, I'm not sold on flat design. Yes some parts of iOS are over the top (game center), but I find much of Android much too flat. The mail app is a good example of confusing interface, where you have to think or remember what controls go together because everything is just floating. Got my wife a Nexus 4 recently, and she had some trouble figuring out the interface in various places. Never had such trouble with iOS. Gmail is another example where I constantly have to think about what to press because it is too flat and bland/unintuitive icons.

I agree with you. It is really hard to find or use Gmail as confused what to do with their GUI when I am in Gmail. Everything has been changed.

Well, Changes always good. But it must be superior to the previous one. The user should feel more comfortable than the previous one. They shouldn't be feel uncomfortable and feel that need a big learning curve to use the new one. The world and peoples are moving very fast and no time to learn.

How do we change? Do we need change everything?

1. Windows VISTA is an alpha version of Windows 7
2. Since I born I can pick an Apple easily from vegetable market.
