I and many others rejoiced when Jony Ive was put in charge of Apple's mobile software following iOS SVP Scott Forstall's dismissal. We already know Ive isn't a fan of the skeuomorphic designs found in iOS, and expect the mobile software to take a (hopefully major) turn for the better.
When it comes to improvements in iOS Notification Center springs to mind; it's about as basic as can be but also shows a lot of potential. With Ive taking over, some users are already suggesting ways on how Notification Center can be improved in iOS 7 and boy are they beautiful. Head inside to check out the latest.
This concept comes to us from Sentry over at TheVerge. Sentry has come up with a very intuitive and attractive way to combine the banner and pop-up alerts currently found in iOS:
Sentry went on to explain that the banner style notifications brought a welcoming presence to notifications in iOS, but unfortunately Apple has still stuck with the annoying pop-up style alerts. With knowing the ways of Jony Ive I'd bet that we'll soon see the end of pop-up notifications, and hopefully he takes a note or two from these.
What do you think about this concept?
