Louie Mantia, on skeoumorphism:
The first problem is defining it. Every person seems to have a different understanding of what that word means. The most obvious issue with that is when people are talking about it with each other, we’re talking about different things.
Something I’d never really considered: apps like Game Center and Find My Friends aren’t skeuomorphs. They use gawdy textures, sure, but they don’t act like real-world objects.
