iOS 7 Design Resources
The design site seems to be a separate website with its own navigation and a header that takes you back to the main site.
- In some respects, the site feels rather disconnected, with the library, home page and design sites having a different look and feel.
- Developer library:
- Provides effective and quick navigation and search. Navigation paths are generally shallow.
- It is nice to see different types of resource alongside one another. For example, selecting a framework shows both code samples and reference material.
- Feels a bit overwhelming at first - you get a long list of recent material, which isn't tailored to your interests or requirements.
