In this iOS 7 screen “Edit” is a button. But “New List” is a label, and tapping it does not cause a new list to be created.
When content and chrome are rendered the same the program becomes hard to use. What is a button? What is just a label and is therefore not meaningful to press?
Reminders app doesn’t allow a user to create a new reminders list without the user titling the list. This UX issue is created by actively titling a reminders card “New List”. This supposed UX issue is the equivalent of creating a playlist called “create playlist” and then complaining that you confused yourself.
