Concept is very important for making creative things, and in the middle of this year Apple will bring iOS 7, before that, YouTuber BlogB13 is one such individual, and has quite wonderfully recreated key elements of iOS, including revamped Notifications, Social Hub and an all-new multitasking concept. I really hope Apple can consider them in the developer of new iOS 7:
BlogB13′s concepts are some of the best we have seen to date. His take on the Notification Center offers an enriched, interactive experience with each app. The current configuration does a satisfactory job, but the conceptual arrangement sees the Notification Center take on new levels of functionality:
The concept of the Multitasking feature takes me straight back to that earlier point about the jailbreak community, and Apple’s inability to consider many of the best entries. An upward swipe gesture sees the current multitask bar make way for an Exposé-like interface, akin also to the Multifl0w tweak created by respected jailbreaker Aaron Ash. By being able to preview open apps, the conceptual multitask bar is infinitely more useful, and considering the one-dimensional capabilities of the current iOS multitasking feature, I, for one, would love to see such an implementation with iOS 7.
BlogB13 also shares an interestingly-conjured Social Hub, which makes the process of communicating with friends and associates just that little bit more pleasurable. To be honest, with the integration with Facebook and Twitter, social networking is arguably an area of less concern with iOS 7. Nevertheless, Social Hub keeps everything – and everybody – neatly filed in one place. Check it out:
So, what’s your verdict? Personally, I think the Notification Center aspect comes up trumps here, but having been very disappointed with the lack of substantial changes with iOS 6, I certainly won’t be the only one hoping for a redeeming effort next time around. Leave your thought in our comment:
