The Discussion

  1. Are we in a “web 2.0” of iOS apps?
    1. See: Yahoo suite, Storehouse, FB Paper, iOS Weather, Tweet Bot, Rdio, etc.
    2. How long will this “fad” last? What aspects do you like about this trend? What do you dislike?
    3. These apps are "flat", but they're skeueomorphic in other ways (subtle animations, "sticky" modals, etc.)
  2. Are largely gesture-based apps "useable" (e.g. Storehouse, FB Paper, etc.)
    1. Certainly beautiful. Few affordances
    2. Deference to content vs. intuitive feel
