    Apple iOS 7 beta

    Hey everyone. Thought I'd make a thread up on the beta for iOS 7 and what everyone's thoughts are about it.

    I personally don't mind it. The overall 'refresh' is nice, icons are.. colorful. Here is a screenshot of my iPhone 4s:



    The beta is in fact, glitchy. Apps crashes upon loading, some features don't process 100%. All in all, it's nice. I'm disappointed because there isn't anything new that I could tell from the beta anyways. It's still the same old iOS but with a fancier and colorful UI. ...and a interactive background that shifts as you use the gyro of your iPhone.

    But there is the teaser or spoiler that I thought I'd post. This isn't legally available for everyone, you must be an Apple Developer to take part in the beta. To become one, there is a hefty price tag of $99 a year. https://developer.apple.com/ios7/

    Yeah I agree I have looked into a bit. It looks a little bright and and I don't really like the tracking background feature.
    Idk, I like a solid looking interface not a fragile one. I like the tech behind it but not the look.

    And I'm not an Apple hater. I bought the 5 and love it. Just not my tastes I guess, but there are plenty of people who will like it I know for a fact.

    I wouldn't say girly... just, not manly. Maybe the option of themes will come out or something. Who knows.

    I think the new ios7 is way better than ios 6

    It has more features and way better looks.


    But I'm waiting for the official software to be realeased due to the betas all being glitchy and draining battery fast.

    Ive had nothing but problems with iOS5, 6 and 7 beta1 and 2. B3 seem fairly stable. iOS 4 is the last good iOS Ive used. iOS 7 is full of stuff that came from the jailbreak world. If I have to use my iPhone Ill run iOS 7 jailbroken as soon as the JB comes out.

    I am excited about iOS 7 hopefully alot of the jailbreak add ons are implemented in this version, Like it was said earlier themes would be great.
    I currently run iOS 6 jailbroken.. because of the jailbroken add ons that are great.

    I don't think apple will add themes there very stuck on having there own unique type of software, They may add a few features that android might have but not alot.

    They did add the quick settings but it was obvious they needed to.

    What I really wanted was the option to have the weather right on the home screen.

    And if you ask me the new notification center is worse than ios6,s

    Does anybody else think the new siri voice sounds terrible? I use siri to deliver pizza, and to me it sounds like siri took a step in the direction of a computer trying to learn english, and when I arrive at a house it spastically spits out the word arrived, stuffed into one syllable. I embarrassed myself in front of a kid on the sidewalk because I was mocking siri when I parked in front of a house I repeated arrived! arrived!
    I like turtles.
