When Microsoft introduced Windows 8 and Windows in Smartphone, flat designs seems to have brought about a revolution and to add on now the iOS7 has left everyone frenzied about them. The designers were not too sure whether the flat designs would actually work but it has just been sometime and these lovely flat beauties seem to have captured the hearts of many. Although the trend in Apple’s iOS7 still seems to be crude but it is a matter of time that they will look equally beautiful on iOS too.
