New Tumblr Focuses on Critiquing iOS 7 Design Flaws

If you’re having a hard time adjusting to the new iOS 7 redesigns, why not join others? This new Tumblr, UX Critique, was made just for iOS 7 criticisms, and they are all spot on. Not all of the critiques are for Apple’s work, the posts have been inclusive of all apps that’s been upgraded to new iOS 7.

Here is a great taste of what you’ll see:

In this iOS 7 screen “Edit” is a button. But “New List” is a label, and tapping it does not cause a new list to be created.

When content and chrome are rendered the same the program becomes hard to use. What is a button? What is just a label and is therefore not meaningful to press?

UPDATE: As of iOS 7.0.4, the Reminders app now requires you to type a name for the list before you can add items, instead of leaving it as the default ‘New List’.
