I’m in the process of getting ready to reset my original iPad but thought it would be fun to look back at the older design a little bit. When using it I was struck with how much I prefer the pre iOS 7 folder look.
This is how it looked, I think the darker background and clear division of content looks a lot cleaner than what we have now.
I’m not a huge fan of the smaller semi transparent look of iOS 7. Yes I can swipe though multiple pages of apps within the folder but for me it’s a lot more user friendly in iOS 5.
This isn’t an old man yelling at the clouds but a look back at different elements of iOS in a nostalgic fashion.
Overall I love iOS these days but I’m looking forward to comparing old app versions and seeing how far (or not) we’ve come.
