Ok then, I just updated my iPad to iOS7 & here are my initial (& probably final) opinions:

I hate it. Everything is like a kid's immature fantasy of an OS redesign. Ugliness is everywhere: the dock at the bottom, the icons, the horrible folders (see screenshot below), and almost everything that I can see. :angry:





I'm not saying that the design is poor. No sir, not at all. I'm saying that there is NO design at all. See Safari's top, for example:







So, basically thanks to all you skeumorphism haters (I'm looking at you, Mr cYo), congratulations for getting words on a blank background as a replacement for 'design'. Here is the new Notes 'app', which is basically a white screen. Great design. :pinch:



A few things are good, though. The magnifying glass is much more elegant:



The iPad's notification center is good. And it is good to get the search bar on any page by just pulling it down.

Rest all is change for the sake of change. The signal bars, for instance, are now replaced by dots or balls. So, you can now get jokes like, "Dude, I got 4 balls!" or "hey! You got no balls".

Sorry, couldn't resist.

Looks like they drank the same crap that is being served at microsoft. And ubuntu. I guess they think the more dumbed down they make their software, the more dumb people will buy it. And the fun part? They are right so far.

fK

That joke won't do anymore, as from now on, you cannot casually glance at my screen & tell me that it is an Apple. Now we are as ugly as your Android devices. :laugh:

I have been using Draftpad on the iPhone for years now, and that is just text on a blank screen. They don't even bother to add a ugly ass texture like Apple. It is so much better. If you really love the fugly chrome textures, you can always start you day with the Twitter website.

:dry: Yeah, design is not needed. By the way, if you just want words on a blank background throughout your phone, why not buy this:



No skeumorphism. Promise. :whistle:

In fairness, for a notepad app I expect the background to be plain and untextured. You know, like the paper I'd normally be writing it on.

Personal preferences. The notes app looked like this in iOS6 (& I loved it):



But, Jony Ive would have none of it, because now "users are comfortable":



Some words from CNET, agreeing with my point of view:

See, I think that was ugly, but I would never buy a yellow notepad in the first place, so yeah that's personal bias talking to some extent.

It's like Ikea furniture, too minimalist, too sparse and by far too white. It makes my eyes hurt much faster.

I can't stand it.
