Fast Company suggests there's a rift inside Apple concerning skeuomorphism.
For me it's about balance and serving the user. Does it add to the experience or take away? Add to the information density or take away? Does it lower user stress or increase it? Does it make the app more accessible or less accessible? More visually interesting or more distracting?
So the question isn't whether skeuomorphism is good or bad, but is Apple currently using it effectively in iOS and OS X?
