Jony Ive sets the trend at Apple and right or wrong, the world follows. He's turned OS X into blue-grey blandness and iOS lost its personality, largely, I think, to reduce the memory load. I don't know how much conformance Apple imposes on app designers to get their apps approved. Look for the flat, bland trend to reverse in the next 3 to 5 years. You'll be so acclimated to bland by then that you'll be complaining about the garish colors.

Has anybody from Atlassian responded to this? I don't care about blandness but I care that all the icons look the same unless you look closely. Commit, Pull and Push all look like the same icon unless you look closely. Fetch is only slight different. With the previous icons, these were all distinct from one another. Also, I'd like to get the Checkout icon back. Why was it removed?
