Ive received a promotion of sorts back in October when he was put in charge of Human Interface teams -- software design -- in addition to his previous duties as head of Industrial design (via 9to5Mac).

I know I'll get hit for this, but I couldn't resist :p

Not really:


IMHO, the iOS 7-HI is much clearer, compared to other OS-versions.

I don't understand people.
iOS 6 comes out and everybody is b.itching about how it's the same and it needs to change.
iOS 7 gets announced and people complain that it's too different.
Make up your f'n minds!!!!

I like iOS 7 and glad apple is doing something different with iOS.


Nobody is complaining it's too different; They are complaining that it's horribly done. Colored text being tapable is NOT intuitive, no matter how you try to look at it. No, just because hyperlinks are colored still doesn't make it intuitive. Buttons are intuitive. Buttons scream "push me". Colored text does not. Common sense says this is poor design. I don't see how anyone can refute my points.

That was Jony's intention all along. His title was too long, so he fought with Scott Forstall just so he can shorten his title.
