- Isn't "skeuomorphism" exactly what Apple products are based on? I mean, the whole point is to evoke a sense of emotion and familiarity with the user - getting under their skin, so to speak. It works really well, it's just not the most efficient path to functionality.
In fact, without any elements of design and/or "skeuomorphism" we might as well just have the military design everything.May 24, 2012
- I was just talking about this last night. When Apple gets it right, you are in love with your device. When they fail, you're infuriated. Same as my dog. Classic example: refusing to timestamp all but the last SMS.May 24, 2012
- Well another classic example of what typically imbued by Apple and its general fan base - which is elitism and a high degree of snobbery.

- I don't like how the author put words in Ivy's mouth, but I do agree that skeumorphism weighs down an otherwise friendly, though outdated, UI. I don't need my notepad app to look like a physical notepad to make reminders effectively. It actually just ends up getting in the way.May 25, 2012
