App developers Geoff Teehan and his team created this high resolution Photoshop file to help them when mocking up ideas for app designs. The file includes full-resolution elements of buttons, keyboards, and all the other user interface elements that are available to iOS developers.

Instead of keeping the file for themselves -- which would be understandable -- Teehan decided to share it with the larger development community. The team has previously other versions of the file, as well, including one for the iPhone 4S.

In 2008 we released our first iOS PSD. We continue to do it, not only because we find useful, but because we think a lot of other designers do too. In fact, over the past four years they’ve been downloaded millions of times. It’s become our little thank you to an industry that has given us so much. We’re really proud to be releasing our latest version today. It’s based on iOS 5.1 and includes hundreds of retina assets available natively on the platform. In addition to the GUI assets, you’ll find perfectly scaled ‘New’ iPads to help you create the apps we’ll come to love in the future.

The file is 35.71MB, designed for Photoshop CS6. The iPad GUI PSD (Retina Display) can be downloaded from Teehan+Lax's blog.

We started to put 4:20 in the time spot 4 years ago. There wasn't much thought put into it - I was simply creating one of the elements that required it, and it was the first "time" that popped into my head. It's since stuck. It's not meant to get any ratings or anything like that - was just a stupid, quick decision. Since then it has become one of the elements in the PSDs allow us to see who's used it (there are many - some obvious, others not so much).

10:08 is a very popular choice for watch ads. Almost every one will use it or something very close.

10:08 on an analog clock face puts the hands in a nicely symmetrical "checkmark" position, without obscuring the company logo (usually at 12 or 6) or date/calendar displays or other dials (usually at 3,6, or 9).

Hey if that bugs you, look at HTC adverts and see if 10:08 becomes a running theme ;)

10:08 (and 42 seconds) was the time all Seiko watches displayed in their print and TV advertising. Someone spent a lot of money deciding it is the time that looked best on both analogue and digital watch faces.

http://www.seikowatches.com/ (http://www.seikowatches.com/) Check it out - they are still using it.

Also the watches with dates always said Wednesday the 2nd (I think from memory)...
