A few weeks ago Michael Steeber wrote an article on 9to5Mac about bringing the Apple Watch’s Home screen interface over to the iPhone:
Here we are in 2014, and the iOS home screen is essentially the same as it was in 2007. Plenty of arguments have been made that the home screen looks “dated” or needs certain features, but I’m proposing not change for the sake of change, but change that unifies, modernizes, and redefines the home screen as we know it. What would happen if the Apple Watch home screen came to the iPhone?
Yesterday, Lucas Menge posted a video of a springboard-esque app that does just that. His video showing off the prototype app is very cool and interesting. It looks fun and modern, and it could definitely help with reachability issues on the Home screens of the bigger phones. But I also can’t help but think how cluttered and busy it looks — that is a lot of icons all in one place, even when zoomed in.
