Reproducing the iOS 7 Home screen... using Microsoft Word

Gotta hand it to Vaclav Krejci, by sheer force of will and commitment to concept, he bent one of the most unwieldy apps in the history of computing into a pretty good static duplicate of iOS 7's Home screen.

Ok, maybe I'm just a hater, but seems like an incredible waste of time to try to do such a thing in Word. In fact, just launching Word seems like an incredible waste of time. ;)))

It's a tool for professionals. Likely you've never used it.

Superjudge says:

Well some of these icons were created by the marketing department. It's almost believable they used word.

Mastery of Microsoft Word: Over 9000. Cause who needs illustrator and photoshop when you have MS Word. lol.

EPJS says:

This is a pointless video. Sure Word has a text bubble, but so does Photoshop and several other applications. Whose to say what was used to add the text bubble and other shapes?

kevinbhayes says:

It's in the video. It's all unicode characters and drawing in Word. It's legit.

ninjajmon says:

I'm sorry but anyone who tries this is a glutton for punishment.

Shock Me says:

Nice mastery of MS Word. Not sure that this artist or Apple should have come up with the icons and color palette they chose.

FearL0rd says:

I didn't know that you could do all this in Microsoft Word. It looks very powerful for a text editor

Mngotu says:

That video is mental!!! I love it!!!
Obviously iOS7 was not created in MS Word (for all you apple fans), but I love how the designer in the video has replicated everything JUST in word, who knew you could do all this!!!

A perfect mastery of the wrong tool for the job.

That was highly entertaining. However, at the end I had to sit back and just say...."But, WHY?". I admire the effort. I hope he sells a few eBooks in exchange for that bit of work.

iNinoMH says:

Incredible. That's what I call being a master of word. Damn.

Alex Zapata says:

Very impressive, now there's an understatement...
