The Absolute Best Concepts So Far (Don't Worry, No Videos)

I've had it. The number of shoddy, sub-standard, second-rate concepts here on the Apple Core have driven me beyond the edge.

So here's a post, a compilations of all the good and the brilliant concepts to have made their way to the Verge in these past years, to please all the others who have been driven to insanity by terribly executed and even worse looking concepts, and hopefully, these would bring your sanity back to what it was.

Auxo:

Aesthetically pleasing, functionally satisfying, Auxo is one of the best executed jailbreak tweaks out there, developed by Sentry, who's earned himself a rather big name in the jailbreak community, now. Auxo-580x3301_medium

iOS Notification Alerts Refresh; Quick Reply:

Another of my favourites, Sentry's done a fantastic job in his attempt to revamp the previously dull and obtrusive process of alerting the user.

Do Not Disturb:

Sentry has once again worked his magic with a concept that extended upon the functionality that iOS 6 offered with Do Not Disturb; this bit of design wizardry makes me wish Apple hired this guy, already.

iPad Multitasking Boost

I know this just screams "SAMSUUUUNG!!", but this is way better executed, at least as much as a picture can convey. Kudos, once again, to Sentry.(this guy never sits put, does he?

Multitasking in an iPhone:

This is a concept by a user known only as lastminutemike, who, in my opinion, is a design virtuoso. So he's come up with a multitasking revamp suggestion for the iPhone, with two versions of the same. Since I have to vamoose in about five minutes, I'm sorry to have to put both of them under one heading, but it'll have to be done. These concepts just looks stunning.

Easier Text Selection:

The last one for now, this concept, again, by lastminutemike, simplifies text selection and editing on iOS; it allows the user to edit the letters in a word separately, rather than backspace their way to the part where the mistake was made.

These are the best concepts I remember; I'm sure there were a few more by other guys on the Verge and other places, so if you know of any concepts that are brilliant and not just mediocre, comment away! Screencaps are appreciated. Sayonara!
