I was tapping around the new app and found the "background colours" settings. The default for the corkboard is "cork", which led me to expect a textured background like the Mac version - but instead it's a pale solid colour. Eventually I worked out that no, this was not a bug - but it took several minutes of tapping around and peering at the screen before I twigged!
As I say, it's ludicrously trivial - but I would have preferred if the options list had said "beige" or whatever. Or if the "cork" background colour was actually the same general colour as the Mac corkboard rather than a washed-out taupe.
Colour me easily confused

It's getting to the point where it's easy to confuse one app icon for another, because they're all flat minimalistic squares! It also violates the design principle of affordance, but that's an argument for another day

Everything is just a one-colour letter or symbol against a background colour. It will just be one more "S" on a background. Yawn. The flat design of iOS app icons just makes it *so* hard to add any texture or do anything interesting with a simple design.
