Yeah... a doctor for the same shit*y design of the iPhone, iPad for a few years??? He may be talented and smart, but he ruined iOS design with so called flat crap, in my opinion. And it's all the same UI in iOS since day one. All new things implemented in iOS are stolen from developers in Cydia.

More like so-called 'same' 'shitty' design and not to mention that iOS textures still have textures in it, just more clean and less glare. The use of colors make it stand out, but if you want true boring 5 minute design, Windows 8 and 10 Denys that. It's like they used construction paper and sprayed all the icons white and boom, there's your modern Windows. As for the design, who cares? People end up buying a case, but what can YOU do?
You're a hole from my ass - June 25, 2016 at 9:08pm
The guy is 100% right. It is shitty clean boring design. I bet you're using Windows phone and just dreaming to get an idevice. This guy has clearly said " my opinion", so he is not imposing his view but expressing it. You dumb ass...
Your ass is for your mouth - June 25, 2016 at 9:40pm
No, it's not the whatever design you careless nit-picky fu©Ks make it out to be, plus this 'opinion' of his is just shitting out and criticizing like someone taking pity on someone minding their own business. That's how unfaithful and cruel this sorry sack of shit is and you're supporting this practice! I bet you're the one actually using a windows phone just to get a vague cliche excuse.
My shit in your mouth - June 25, 2016 at 9:55pm
What a miserable piece of shit. You shut the f*ck up, grandma f*cker. Someone has said something and dickhead idiots like you always jump in the discussion to put some shit. Just keep jerking off on your windows shit phone imagining an iPhone.
