A new concept created by Parker Ortolani imagines what that could like for iPhone users.

In Ortolani’s concept, developers could choose from three variations of home screen views for their apps:

• Classic still icon
• New live icon that can show data or buttons
• Full-size widget

Parker Ortolani via Twitter:

Alright, here’s my concept for adding widgets to the iOS home screen. I call it SpringKit. Three icon classes for developers to pick from that users can also switch between. All of them fall into the existing grid and customization features.

MacDailyNews Take: Looks good. Not sure about the height matching the height of a normal icon plus its text, though. Looks a bit off, no? What do you think?

Initial thought: Our grandparents will never use it.
