The expressive nature of these apps is amazing. The variety of interfaces catering to the specific needs of the user using the apps is stunning. That’s what happens when you don’t have overlords telling you how to build your app or what it should look like – creativity!
Apple has it’s GUI standards but really locks down what kind of interfaces you can make (sans games) on iOS4. Their interface is nice but I don’t think it’s the begin all/ end all of UI or UX design. Apple really limits what the user can choose to experience in it’s drive for “simplicity”. Simplicity has it’s merits for sure but it can get pretty boring/stagnant at times. It’s getting very cult-ish over there.
