With today’s WWDC announcement of iOS 7, app designers and developers expressed a broad range of first impressions about the new operating system’s user interface. My Twitter stream was on fire with reactions from those at WWDC and those live-streaming the event from home. Here are some of my favorites:

Official confirmation that skeuomorphism is on the chopping block. Designers rejoice. #WWDC13

Maybe what's bothering me most about iOS 7 is that all the text is thin, even in spots where it used to be bold. Looks really odd.

I am withholding judgement on iOS 7 until I use it for a bit… but hard to do that with some of those icons… but def amazing stuff too

Problem is that all existing apps now look like crap next to iOS 7 UI, unless probably you use standard UIKit stuff.

Love the new design in iOS 7. Can't wait to get ship designs out in the fall for the Vault.
