Skeuomorphic Design — A controversial UX approach that is making a comeback
Justin Baker

Getting rid of skeuomorphism was a cheap trick to reduce the effort in designing GUI and therefore increase the number of qualified “designers” and developers who would then enrich the market with their products. It didn’t make Windows Phone famous and it turned the Apple’s App Store into the equivalent of the Google Play with all sorts of ugliness and free apps bloated with adds.
I’m not saying that all flat design looks bad nor that all skeuomorphic design looks good but reducing the criteria is never a good idea.
