I’ve heard all sorts of reactions to the announcements today, but I’m encouraged. Primarily because iOS was getting long in the tooth and really needed to get an overhaul. However, I will also agree with many that point out how much of the new OS resembles Android. The interesting thing will be how apps will adjust their look/feel to reflect the new updates. It’s a good time to build applications that are focused on user centric interactions.
In the end people are going to be grumpy because it’s different and eventually will move on.
