Concept gives iOS icons the Live Tile treatment
Love them or hate them, the Live Tiles of Windows Phone offer a unique and functional interface for users. The widgets in Android do as well, but not all Android apps get to be a widget, whereas Microsoft is opening up the environment to encourage developers to bring a real-time effect to their apps and take advantage of what a live tile might offer. Whatever your preference, both platforms offer a top layer functionality that iOS does not.
As Apple pursues the development of the next version of iOS and whatever it may bring to the user experience, imagine what that experience would look like if Live Tiles met widgets in iOS. Max Rudberg is a visual and user interface designer. He took the idea of widgets and tiles and incorporated them in a concept for iOS.
The concept looks pretty nice overall. It would be interesting if Apple were to adopt an idea like this, as Microsoft and others would be sure to notice while contending with a lawsuit over Live Tiles.
