I mean, have you seen a 2G, 3G or 3GS screen recently? You’d think you have some kind of eye disease. That screens sits at the bottom of a well with water covering it. No wonder a design made under those conditions is starting too look a little heavy handed.Max Rudberg, iOS subdued
Tim Green takes a look at the progression of popular iOS apps as a potential clue to the level of “flatness” that iOS 7 will introduce.
I really hope iOS 7 gets “widgets,” and that they don’t look like this.

New pull-to-refresh in iOS 6 Mail looks fantastic.
Continuing to think about Opera and Mobile, I wrote another thing about market breakdown, Opera Mini, and the value of tailoring to WebKit.
Teehan+Lax have, at long last, released their Retina-ready iPad GUI PSD. Longtime readers will know that I normally post whenever Teehan+Lax release one of their Photoshop-based mobile UI sets, but this one is different: With the overall resolution in the new iPad, and some of the newer elements in iOS 5.1, the scale of this project was immense (as anyone following Geoff on Twitter already knows). It’s also quite interesting that the file was made in and requires the Photoshop CS6 beta:
It’s a free download right now and, in my humble opinion, one of the best releases of Photoshop to date. Its perfect pixel snapping, grouped layer styles and a few other features enabled us to create the assets with more accuracy, yet remain remarkably editable.
You’ll have to download the PSD to see all of the detail and labor that must have gone into making it. Congrats to the team!
An interesting experiment with geometric eroticism, made as an iPhone app, but sadly rejected by the App Store. As consolation, you can pick up any of these t-shirts for € 32.87.
