Microsoft is one of the few software companies yet to release a series of official iOS applications. Since mobile app design is so popular it seems like a fantastic idea.
In a recent tutorial I covered the process of designing small buttons for an older iOS6 app interface. This was based off the Microsoft Word UI created by Victor Erixon. It’s a great concept but also somewhat dated in the current realm of flat iOS7-iOS8 interfaces.
The iPhone 6 and iOS 8 release has created a new environment for app developers. Interface elements are very similar following the flat design scheme but little tidbits have been updated. Also the larger iPhone 6 screen resolution with @2x(and @3x for iPhone Plus) comes out to a whopping 750×1334.
For this freebie I’ve created a social news application where users could vote on news and post comments with other readers. It’s built using the familiar flat UI elements with a focus on iOS 8 updates. Feel free to download a copy and use it for any projects or practice work.
Some say that less is more, but critics will often disagree. Yet how do you explain the success of Google, chihuahuas, or Gary Coleman?

Inky Deals is one of the leading deals websites in the design community, with an extended family of more than 300,000 design enthusiasts. It’s the place to go if you want to buy premium resources at unbeatable prices, whether you’re a graphic or web designer, developer, or business owner looking to improve yourself and your work.

If you’re the type of designer that creates your own textures, from photos or scans, there are always other unique textures available from other designers and photographers that can serve as a complement to the ones you’ve created for yourself. And if you don’t create your own textures, you’re sure to love finding quality sources of textures that you can use.
Here we’ll showcase 40 different texture sets that are not only high quality, but they are also free to download.
