We know the story. Jony Ive ascends at Apple, skeuomorphism is out, flat is in.
Not that I was ever too fond of fonts that looked like 3rd grade hand writing and yellow notebook backgrounds for a note taking app, mind you. But a nicely designed icon that gives me some friggin’ idea of what it does is fundamentally appealing, despite current fashion. (note the very dimensional toolbar icons for utilities, downloads, and spotlight search)
Here are some of the applications found on my OS X system.
Several are in the dock, used daily. May this fashion soon run its course. Because my head hurts, uncle, Jony.
