I'm working on a small mac app for Cactus, a static site generator for designers (https://github.com/koenbok/cactus) by @koenbok. Inspired by iOS7 and @bdc's shot (http://dribbble.com/shots/1210393-ios7ified-finder). What do you think?

Would buy just to look at, honestly can't find anything off with the design. I'd have to know what the app does exactly to say anything about UX. Maybe just something to define the toolbar more? I don't know how that would look, but you can try it.
Looks great overall.
How would you handle an inactive window? With so little colour it might be hard to make that obvious.
Maybe make the close and mimimize buttons a little bit more Mac like by reintroducing their traditional colors (this might also help making a more distinctive inactive window).
Really cool @Jorn!
Looks great. One thing to consider is that mac apps don't use the + - icons.
Nice and clean. I'm definitely going to check out Cactus app later on!
Nice and clean, only thing I'm not digging are the "x" "-" buttons. If I'm using a mac app, I'd like it to feel at least somewhat consistent with other mac apps. :)
I love it Jorn!
Looks great! Have you tried considering something like an eye for the preview icon? The overall shapes of the setup icon and the preview icon feel similar. So it might be hard to distinguish the two things at a glance.
The Windows style icons in the upper left seem odd, but other than that... all smiles. Glad to see you're finishing this with Koen!
I guess the other question I have is... is it actively deploying in this screenshot? Given that blue means "on" for the switches, having the deploy button also be permanently blue seems odd.
Damn, Cactus looks pretty awesome.
Also nice design ;)
This iOS 7 style is really growing on me since I first installed the beta after they announced it. Hopefully we'll see more Mac apps take after and eventually even OS X.
I would love something like this to manage my Jekyll projects!
Either no one knows what they're talking about, or they're smoking something.
Jorn, you know as I do that OS X actually uses those X and – icons (on hover). This looks mostly great. I think the switches need a little dimensionality like iOS 7's do. Icons are good, crisp, geometric. I like the all-white.
I find it most interesting that you use Lucida in this though. I wonder...
Thanks for the feedback guys! Rebound coming soon with Helvetica ;)
@mantia I don't think the feedback around the x/- is valid either. My guess is that folks miss circular items, that show those controls on hover. Also, I'm curious to learn why you think switches have dimensionality in iOS7. They stand out to me when glancing over the new set of controls.

@Louie Mantia I think if some designers, of all people, don't realize they exist vs. using the colors/circles to designate, it's probably a safe assumption most regular users don't either.
Are they unclear in their intent when I click on them? No. The design isn't going to fail. It was merely an observation of perceived inconsistency with the rest of the OS in representation of one of the few most widely-implemented standardized patterns.
Is it going to be live anytime soon? :)
