Oscar Nilsson on Medium:
All these details makes the new Apple UIs slightly tuned for a more organic, skeuomorphic look, which makes it feel more welcoming and friendly than a UI which is closer to 100% digital. Windows phone is perhaps one example of such a purely digital design language.
This is the differentiating design characteristic between the platforms at this time. Apple offers more attention to the details, as well as the long-run experience and delight of the users. But there is an intangible organic quality to it I can’t put my finger on. ∞
