View Full Version : iOS 7 makes me Sick!

I have just installed iOS 7 beta 1 in my iPhone 4s and I don't really know why, but IT MAKES ME SICK!!

I think that it is a combination of the increasing number of animations, and the background moving all the time. There are al lot of reference points moving arround. I feel the same than when you travel on a boat.

The colors doesn't help too much, they are too bright and everything is white and ugly colorful and plain. I really don't like it at all.

I have made this image that represents what I feel:

I really hate the new color schemes, the animations, the 3x3 apps folders (3x3 really??), and the eye hurting ultra bright white menus.

For those who say that I'm not a designer... That's right, but I'm telling that this iOS version makes me feel bad.


To be a little bit positive, I love the new safari concept, with going back and forward pullers just like in desktop safari, the fullscreen mode, etc... But the white color scheme with those thin icons.. come on.... It is hard to see...

The image really clears things up for me. I wouldn't have understood otherwise.

Haha, well done. If it helps you can remove the dynamic backgrounds and make them static in Settings.

No you can't. You can put non animated backgrounds, but although they are "still" images, they move when you move the iphone using the giroscope with a 3d effect. And I haven't found how to disable it. It is so annoying.

Yup, no ever reaction here. Perfectly reasonable, calm, and sensible reaction.

I can't see why anyone would think that might be just a tiny over reaction to something of such importance.

Yup...no problem here...






GET HELP!

Oh you mean the parallax effect, I thought you were talking about the dynamic backgrounds. Someone mentioned it would be able to be turned off, even though it looks like it's not in the current beta. Till then you can always just use a solid color background.

I must say that I'm extremely happy with iOS 7 after installing the beta on my iPhone 5. It'a a beautiful OS and I believe that Apple are heading in the right direction!

To turn off the motion or at least reduce it. At least I think it does of my use

Settings>General>Accessibility>Reduce Motion

thank you for being so clear with your bold words about how you FEEL

did you know that you could go into settings and then go to accessibility and then select reduce motion in order to calm down some of the effects and animations that make you feel so sick and bad?

Hey thanks!! It disables the motion backgrounds!
It still annoyying how it keeps all the time zooming in and out when you open folders and apps. It really makes me sick.

It's a very flimsy look. Very freshman level graphic design.

The sad thing here is that all the new devices this fall will be released with this fisher price edition of iOS. Hopefully they will give us the open to turn things off.

Zooming when opening apps makes me nervous. It is slow and distracting. And makes me sick that I really want to throw up after some use.

You don't like avocados!!! Oh the horror!! How dare you!!! ;) :p

There are some things I like with this and some I don't, but until I get my hands on it I really can't say. I think people forget that if they get this or not, life goes on.

I was looking forward to the new slimmer ipad like the mini.

Now I will be keeping ipad 3. Mixed emotion.

I love new products but sometimes changes are bad.

Off topic but I'm also jumping from Xbox to PS4. MS one is another ugly gadget :eek:

I hope it can be disabled. I don't mind it myself, but my wife is one of those people who gets sick (motion sickness?) when watching 3D movies or playing video games, like the OP is describing. It's not an overreaction, guys; some people are just really sensitive to that kind of visual effect. Drives me nuts TBH (my wife hates video games, which means no multiplayer deathmatches, etc) but it's not like she chooses to get physically ill when she sees my iOS7 springboard.

iOS 5.0 Betas: "All they did was steal from Android! :mad: "
iOS 6.0 Betas: "All they did was add a few features, nothing major! :mad: "
iOS 7.0 Betas: "All they did was make the icons look dumb! :mad: "

Can't wait to see what iOS 8.0 brings about.

It doesn't make me sick, it makes my wife sick. And when you've been married as long as I have, you'll figure out that it's best not to argue with the wife about little stuff like iPhones and iOS7's parallax homescreen layers. ;)
