iMore show 351: The flattening

I agree with what Peter said about deejay being one good example of skeumorphic design that provides decent user experience. Another example I could find is GarageBand. Real-world metaphors could be good sometimes. And I strongly believe Apple wouldn't go all-out flat with iOS 7. Throwing out gloss and gradient is more than enough in my opinion.
