    Hm.. just to play devil's advocate on this particular comment, I would say that the leather look & feel of the Reminders app was a reference to physical carry-sized notebooks, probably something of a 'classier' executive/business styling.

    For Find My Friends, the reference there was to more of a picnic-style motif -- almost "summer campy", if you will. The thought being an outdoors outing with family/friends.

    Not saying I prefer these looks, just thoughts from where I personally see the creative origins stemming from.

      Thank you, Sir Devil; I think you make reasonable suppositions here. Neither of those possible creative origins had ever occurred to me. Evidently, though, Apple chose more recognizable motifs in other formerly skeuomorphic applications, such as Notes. In my mind, the yellow notepad is unmistakable.
