✎ Podcasts app and skeumorphism
I don’t know why people get so upset over Apple’s Podcasts app with a reel to reel deck on the new playing screen. It’s a beautiful illustrative element for a screen that otherwise would be quite dull. Watching it is almost hypnotic.
You could argue it doesn’t make sense as a metaphor for podcasts, but it’s fun. It’s that simple. Get over it and carry on.
