“This is the anti-path/fb Paper approach to design. They’ve gone ahead, curated, and built the whole shebbang. With perfect pixels and manicured swipes, the apps look great (I’m actually extremely envious of their design team talent!), but I’ll never use them again. There’s no room for me to make it mine.”
