    Default iOS 7...thoughts?

    I think the design is beautiful, and the attention to detail great. However, nothing feature wise surprised me because it seems like nothing that was presented was brand new. Android has had those features in some form or another.

    None of what was announced today was taken from android. It all existed before either android or iOS were even a glimmer in their respective creators' eyes.

    I thought it looked pretty awesome! Add widget support, and a 4.7 inch screen and I would be all over it!

    i like the new iOS design, but let's wait for the reviews of users, previous iOS 6 had lots of drawbacks..

    Is "ffffffhhahahahahahaa" an acceptable answer? Cause that's what I did.

    I'm sorry, I can't take that pastel stuff seriously.

    Looks better but nothing that makes me want to switch back. PS4 laying the smacketh down was far more interesting for me.

    IOS 7 looks good. IOS needed a lot of work. I used to own the iPhone 4 and 5 then I switched to android. I didn't like being locked in. I like the openness of android and android overall. Before everyone starts criticizing Apple and iOS 7 remember it's only in 1st beta right now.

    Looks like apple "borrowed" from every platform including its jailbreaking scene. Some things look good some things are crappy looking but its still in beta. Still locked into apple ecosystem so pretty much useless for me since I want to keep my options opened and have the ability to easily switch to windows or something else that comes along

    I hope they dial back the colors a little and clean up the icons. It looks like a Fisher Price toy in some way IMO.

    FYI you are only "locked" if you let them lock you. There's nothing that prevents you from enjoying iOS, Windows, and Android all at the same time. I'm having a ball with all three.

    Ios7 looks great in design. I look forward to playing with it on my ipad. However it still doesn't do anything my note 2 doesn't do. I'm pretty sure there will be a ios7 icon pack on the play store and a launcher before they actually release the real ios 7 lol

    I'd say it's meh. The whole thing is rubbish. Just like everything else Apple have made. Everything introduced on IOS 7, Android already has it or can do it. "We now have multitasking..." Congratulations? My S2 can multitask. The whole interface looks like it was made for a toy phone- it looks bubbly and it is waaay too gordy. Have all of this on a lanky 3.5-4 inch screen and you've got trouble on your hands my friend. Knowing Apple, they'll produce phones like this for another six years or so with the EXACT same software, just changing the screen size every now and then and their iSheep will flock around to buy it. Call me biased- you know I've got a point.

    I like that it addresses some long standing shortcomings, (number of items in folders, access to radios, multitasking for all apps) but it's still locked down too much and those colors and icons are just horrendous. I honestly do not know how the same person who comes up with all the elegant classy styles for hardware, can be the one responsible for the cotton candy preschool colors when it comes to software. The hardware might look professional, but the software, graphically, most certainly does not.
    If I wanted limits on what I could do with a device, I would have an iPhone!

    You don't really, because you don't even know what features they actually announced.

    I think they did a pretty decent job. Looks clean. I think the reason maybe more features weren't introduced is because when Ives took over, he had only 9 months to get rid of all the garbage that Scott Forestall had put in with the green felt, wood bookcases, fake card shredders, fake leather calendars, etc . If you watch the little video of Ives talking about it, he said it was a Beginning.

    I'll be interested to see where iOS 8 goes. Until then I'm still cool with my S4.
    iOS and Android are BOTH great. iPhone 3, 3GS, 4, 4s, 5, 5c, 5S, LG Optimus G Pro, S3, S4, Note 3, Moto X, Nokia 520, Nokia 1520 (8.1)..
    Currently using LG G2 and iPhone 5s.

    As an iPhone user I think it was greatly inspired by Android. And that is a good thing. I really think Android is top notch, only I like the Apple ecosystem. So here I get a bit more functionality. Good stuff, and yes Apple was inspired by others and are taking flac for it, but such is the industry.

    Looking at the comparisons out there, they were actually more 'inspired' by WebOS than anything else. It just so happens that Android also drew significantly from WebOS as well.

    Yeah, but they've been borrowing from the jailbreaking scene for a long time. Not that I ever minded, since when I wasn't jailbroken it was nice to finally get simple tweaks and features that the phone should have had all along.

    I hope someone goes along and outlines everything apple "borrowed". They sure like to throw pissy fits and lawsuits any time someone borrows their stuff, but it's supposed to be perfectly fine and acceptable when they do it. Let's just say if they start getting the other end of the lawsuit-hammer, it won't sadden me.

    edit: Skyping with a buddy, he just said:

    "lol it looks like Windows Phone threw up on an Android"

    I... find it hard to disagree with that. I am still of the opinion that one should use what works for them and if iOS is it, then that's great, but honestly, that seems like a pretty good assessment IMO...

    Well the cards thing was definitely WebOS. But I had a Pre as my first smartphone, so I am very excited for that feature for sure..
