Updating iCurrency Pad to iOS 7.
The left mockup is a direct adaptation of the existing design. The right mockup is an experiment on a grayscale theme.

The grayscale version might need more contrast between the glyphs and the buttons. Right now, especially the action buttons (around the numbers) look inactive.
Yes, the right one needs more contrast.
I'm not sure why these don't work for me.
I think that the light grays as @Janik Baumgartner mentioned, are lacking contrast to the glyphs inside of it, as well as the buttons around it. When doing shades of gray, it's best to have a broader range of shades between the buttons. I personally think that the equation buttons should be as light as the gray used in the top portion. It would match the contrast you had with the iOS6 version.
I like it, but on the one on the right I think you could add some more contrast, specially to the +,-*,=,etc
And also the top glyph of the arrows, the one to change the currency values.
With the new aesthetic of iOS7, it might be worth considering stripping the whole thing back further. A lot further. I mean all inner shadows, borders and highlights, and as others have mentioned, less monotone greys and higher contrast numbers.
Step in the right direction though!
@Rob Palmer ~ Branded07 Thanks, but the goal wasn't to go all flat so as not to strip away the personality of the existing app. Came in with the mindset of 'taming it down' rather than stripping elements away entirely. :)
@Manolo Sañudo @Kris Mendoza @Janik Baumgartner
Thanks for the feedback guys. The grayscale one is definitely work in progress. This is the first iteration of that color scheme. Will have your input in mind when revising. :)
I'd work on the contrast. Also, the content framing is unnecessary. Consider having views bleed to each other's, and the screen's, edge.
