It has been nearly a year since the first iOS 7 beta, and
something about tint color still bugs me. In fact it bothered me
enough at the time of the early betas that a filed a bug on it
with Apple, something I very rarely do. The problem isn’t so much
in the concept of tint color, which I like; having a consistent
color for buttons and links, especially now that buttons are so
understated, makes a lot of sense. The problem is the
implementation in apps that use tint color anytime they want to
highlight something, whether it is tappable or not.
Too many buttons that don’t look like buttons — that’s my single biggest gripe about iOS 7.
