Alex Saretzky has posted his concept for a redesign of Notification Center.

No one likes the linen – it doesn't make sense. If there's linen behind the screen (seen when you use Siri or the app switcher) then how can you also pull down a curtain of the same material over the screen? Its inconsistent and visually blah.

The second major issue with Notification Center is the tiny little close x buttons that you have to tap twice. The iOS Human Interface Guidelines specify a tap area of 44 pixels, these are clearly in violation. Tap above or below the x and you'll hit a notification banner. This needs to be painless and really should be a delightful experience.


Saretzky's solution is simple. Ditch the linen and display notification banners grouped by app and organized chronologically. You can then dismiss a group of notifications by swiping to the right and draging them off screen.

Notably, with Jonathan Ive taking control of Apple's Human Interface, we might actually see a real change to Notification Center soon.

Check out his concepts below and provide feedback at the link below...

I agree! The current NC is "inconsistent and visually blah" and this new UI concept actually looks to function much better. However, without sounding like a pen15, I find this concept to be aesthetically [visually] more blah than the current NC. Functional? 10...Aesthetic? 4... Apple is known for its operational elegance. There is no comparison. I hope Ives does a real overhaul on the NC. Hopefully taking some notes from this concept.

I liked more on Apple original design not this crappy design that doesn't seem to look better. Why because the design were too simple and to many white.

This crappy design will drain my battery for sure. Take your concept and shove it where the sun don't shine, maybe the white will make your ass glow.

I hate the new design. Way too much white.!! I love the current one we have now, if Apple changes the one we currently have it will force me to hate Apple even more. - I vote to keep the current one.!! If you agree with me, just put ( 1) as a reply to my post..

I like the current one but you're right about the "x"
