"Among those impressed has been Apple, which redesigned iOS this year with a flatter, minimalist look championed by Any.do. Along with music app Rdio, word game Letterpress, and competing task app Clear, Any.do was among the apps that Apple looked to for inspiration as it redesigned iOS, according to people familiar with the matter. When Jony Ive took over as the company’s head of design, he was given a list of forward-looking apps that suggested how iOS could evolve, these people said — and Any.do was on that list. (Apple did not respond to a request for comment.)" »

If this is true, and I suspect it is, I think it lends credence to what I’ve suspected all along: iOS 7 is not quite the coherent product of a forceful design vision that we’re led to believe, but rather a somewhat uneven and scattershot response to what Apple perceives as the general direction of its ecosystem as increasingly driven by independent developers. For Apple, a company that has generally prided itself (modulo a Sherlock here and there) on a policy of “push, not pull” (as one manager once put it to me when I worked there), it seems to me that this represents a bit of a sea change. I’m not saying it’s entirely a negative thing—I’ve always thought that for Apple to remain relevant it was going to have to open itself up to more outside influences—but it may be a bit of a bumpy transition.

I’ve been using Any.DO for a long time. Interesting to know this story.
