Todd, thank you very much for the input, all valid points.
I've started this article as a checklist, mostly in order to provide a starting point for the conversations between designers and stakeholders. This is an article in the making (aka the MVP) and, with the help of feedback like yours, we want to make it as useful as possible.
Next, we hope to expand on the items we've mentioned (on individual posts) and provide more examples (as iOS 7 is so new, most of our work is still in progress and confidential).
Meanwhile I've added some examples and resources on the current link
. Thanks again!
