iOS 7 has landed with a bang and the user interface design speaks a new language. That language is called minimalism. Sometimes less is more. A common place where a lot of heavy design may lead to clutter is in your menu buttons. For the coders, this means your UIBarButtonItem-s.
While making updates to all your templates for iOS 7, we decided to strip some of the unnecessary adornments from our menu buttons. Give those babies some fresh air.
For example, here is how the famous “hamburger” button looked like on the previous version of the Socioville template.
We decided to take out the borders and give it a clean look.
Consider doing the same for your icons. Your app will get easier to use. There will be more space for your UI elements and your users will thank you for a less cluttered design.
Here is the new look. (A subtle change but it does look a lot cleaner).
I have also decided to give you a “Hamburger” button as a freebie. In this download, you will get the large Photoshop version and the PNGs in both retina and standard resolutions.
