    next up on my BlackBooks iOS6/7 concept is the Top Rated books.

    For this i wanted to keep the shelves but still have a way to navigate categories so i have increased the size of the shelve front to add a title and a "view all" button.

    real pixels have been attached and more shots to follow soon.

    Textures can work on iOS 7! Boom! Love the tab bar icons, hate the nav bar icons. Some sort of white drop shadow and an inner shadow on the nav bar icons, while maintaining the darkness that they have right now.

    Thanks @James Finley :) just so i understand what you are referring to the icons in the Topbar you don't like, the bottom ones in the Footer you do?

    i;m pretty sure from what i remember the Footer is known as the TapBar lol.

    @Michael Shanks Yes, the bottom is your tab bar and the top is your navigation bar. The black icons in the nav bar are what I don't like. :)

    Sorry, but I think you're headed in the wrong direction.

    Hi @Eric Celedonia, what do you think i should change? for me feedback is very important and no matter what it is it's always good to take it on board :)

    @Michael Shanks, sure np. I think that the stylistic approach is a bit too dated at this point. All the wood texture, deep perspective, and carved out type is all really heavy. You'd be much better off and more successful if you dialed back the idea of physical shelving, and maybe even removing the wood textures all together.

    @Eric Celedonia perfect :) the kind of detail i love in comments. Thanks for the info.

    I think i should point out that the reason for the full on detail with iOS7 minimal elements is because most of the apps currently out there won't have the time/resources to go away and totally redesign everything. the only alternative would be that the app stays the same and only made to work in iOS7, this means that some apps may have full detail but iOS7 style elements (like above).

    you are right however about dropping a lot of the detail to fit into iOS7, it would make it less dated in terms of the new flat look that everything is getting these days :)
