Up until iOS 7, Apple’s mobile OS was focused on these skeuomorphic designs as opposed to the WP flat approach. Then suddenly all came a “new” and “innovative” way as iOS7 invents the flat approach.

Long Zeng compares a selection of popular apps on both platforms. With developers updating to iOS7 styling, some of these apps are looking a lot more flat too. Via Reddit

I think WP8 spotify needs tweaking. Have the side tab approach like the facebook app. Also it needs the rest of the spotify features. Generally spotify sucks on all my devices. iOS/Android/Mac OS/Windows/WP but they have got me trapped with my playlists. But the WP8 client needs some updating again please.
