Guy Dickinson on Storify with a fascinating account of the experience of setting up his 88 year old Grandmother's first computer and changing his mind a little on skeuomorphism along the way. Interesting that while the skeuomorphism made things easier to grasp for her that there were still some huge barriers placed in the way, for example the sudden switch from newspaper to "app".
Wells Riley with the opposite side of the skeuomorphism coin. I think it's hard to make any sweeping statements about it really as good/bad design and skeuomorphism are not that closely linked really. Of course there is good skeuomorphic design and bad non-skeuomorphic design.
Dave Addey on a great resource from Google of hundreds of embeddable fonts for your iOS apps. I was aware of Google Fonts before now but had no idea that the license agreement was so generous.
Christopher Downer with an interesting look at some of the subtleties of designing for Retina displays. This article is focused on the Mac but the techniques are relevant to any high DPI design.
Phillip Bowden with an article on discoverable and undiscoverable gestures. I think his point about graduated feedback is the most important one here. Can a swipe gesture feel natural without the content underneath it moving along with the gesture? I don't think so.
