Beautiful Apps User Interface and Icons – early 2013

After doing some browsing, I have found a couple of articles about beautiful app user interface design. I can say that today’s apps developments are truly amazing. It is not just about the function but how it looks is also carefully designed and made. Typography and flow of the interface were carefully tailored to suit the target users best. Here are some apps that have caught my attention in no particular order. These apps show various approach in user interface design. Some are heavily implemented the skeuomorphism and others use completely opposing approach, flat and simple design. For me, both approaches are fine, depending on what kind of apps and what kind of image the developer want to project in the apps.
