Assuming this design may come to our iOS devices in september or october, and trying to send a message to Apple:

Do you like iOS 7 icons and color schemes redesign?

If yes, you assume this is the best that Apple can do and you want it in the final design.
If not, you really want it to be severely revised.

Yes I really like it, but there needs to be a small revision to some of the icons. Thats my only complaint. But its different from previous versions which is why I'm a bit positive about it.

This. Why can't people just use the beta 1 thread instead of starting a new one?

The icons need to be completely overhauled and the excessive amount of blur needs to be removed IMO.

Agree - the frosted glass effect just doesn't work.

That's one of my favorite attributes of iOS7.
It's attractive.

It's not that I hate it, it's just that it is very reliant on what is underneath, which can often be unpredictable.

My worst complain is about the use of WHITE. You can use gray at least.
The gray keyboard and gray Safari when you are on private browsing are a lot better.

The white backgrounded icons, just seems to be unfinished and ugly.

You may like iOS 6 design or not, but this is the first time that I can really see UGLY things in an iOS device.

The same with Mavericks. Notes app is just, the worst look I could've ever imagined.

I really think the icons could use a little darkening up and maybe some way to have them stand out from the background, some sort of border or something, but if they don't do that life will go on. And the reminders app is pretty awful looking with a black background, not digging that either. The whole thing seems extremely wallpaper dependent, some of the translucent gradients could use a little work too. But it is a beta and I'm sure it will change alot over the course of the next few months.

There are countless threads on the iOS redesign subject. This didn't need its own thread, there's no cookies for starting a thread.

I mean what did you think, we'd all be on our knees bowing down to you for starting the only and only holy grail thread of iOS 7's redesign?

There wasn't any poll that directly asked this question. And I have tryed to be neutral with it. If you don't like it just don't answer. And if a moderator thinks this is reapeated they are fully free to close it. From a free man to another.

I did vote Yes, but the icons can be toned down and Calendar app can be fixed up (please)

I am a registered developer, but when I try to access the developer forums it takes me to a blank screen? How can I submit feedback, I can't seem to find another way on the Dev. site...

I don't like the new design at all. The white, neon, and black colors all clash. If Apple was trying to find the worst possible color scheme, they surely succeeded. The stock apps and icons look unpolished (except for the weather app). The only thing I like design wise is the lock screen. Looks great. I also don't like the frosted glass look on the dock of the home screen. I wish they'd get rid of it all together.

Other than the ugliness, I think iOS 7 is great.

Actually, you're totally incorrect.

I like the new design a lot. Although I wouldn't say that this is the best they can do, but it's still a big big improvement.

If you took the time to open the thread and view the poll options and questions, you'd see:

Do you like the look of iOS 7?
Yes
No

I'll have to wait and see how it is in real use

Duplicate thread, please send to wasteland.

Everyone is going mental over a few icons and completely missing all the cool new features.

Get over it and put the ugly icons in a folder
I've been doing that for years

Agreed. Merge or remove this thread.

But to conform to other rules against peer moderation.. I'm happy either way with iOS 7. There is nothing it won't do that I can do now. And some of the things it can do are faster or more convenient.

Win-Win IMO.

I'd say, it looks somewhat unpolished here and there. On the positive note, finally I'm not compelled to have "Fitness I", "Fitness II", "Fitness III", "Fitness IV" and "Fitness V" folders, as a single folder should suffice for an unlimited number of apps of the sort. Perhaps, the best feature added in iOS 7.
By the way, the Spotlight is now about 4 times slower than it were under iOS6. Let's hope, this will change before the release of the official version.

I'm still lamenting Apple's headstrong resolve to stay with their terrible keyboard and keep locking out better alternatives. The most significant omission, in my view.

I find myself using my phone more often now since upgrading to i0S7. I know this is just a beta and more changes are coming, but I do like the direction that Apple is going with this redesign.

Might agree with you on the with backgound on the icons. I keep expecting a way to customize the background colors or themes for the Icons.

It's not that I hate it, it's just that it is very reliant on what is underneath, which can often be unpredictable.

The problem is that you'll quickly get bored of them though, if they were solid colors. The nice little blur effect will not only give a sense of context (as stated in the video), but it'll be dynamic, so you'll be bored of it less quickly.

I would like to see one of these polls differentiate between those that have it installed on their device vs. those that are simply looking at screenshots and following along via the forums. The reason I say this is that I feel there are qualities that aren't evident in simple screenshots. Using it is very different from looking at it.

Options should be something along the lines of:

Running it - Love it!
Running it - Hate it!
Not running it - Love it!
Not running it - hate it!


Edit: To be clear, I am not saying that your opinion is not valid if you aren't running it on your device. I just get the sense that the splits will look different based solely on hands-on experience.

Being excited by an interface is pretty low on the list of my life priorities.

You obviously haven't seen the entire macrumors forum complaining about iOS 6

----------

A lot of duplicate threads. I see another one with someone designing their version of app icons. Sigh.

But they all share one thing in common: They still look almost identical to the existing icons. Just their way of saying that apple did a good job.

Nailed it. Looks great over white and lighter screens, but when it hits a dark green, purple, red.. It just seems so unapple. But again, over white it looks a treat..

My only other gripes in the 20 mins I played with it were the green icons are way too fluro, the dial pad in phone looks terrible - really buggered this up, lastly recent calls, favorites etc. is all soooo white.. Too white.. They should try that white perforated texture from the WWDC banners, the white needs something to break it up..

Apple will be blown away with your findings, Pedro.

72 people like it and 31 People don't!! With those numbers they may seriously consider their whole strategic plan!!!

. . . Do you like iOS 7 icons and color schemes redesign?

If yes, you assume this is the best that Apple can do and you want it in the final design.
If not, you really want it to be severely revised.

As the OP is talking specifically about Icons and Colours, I voted, "No"

I love the new features and functionality of iOS 7 and think they've moved it forward from iOS 6, but I find the look is just too basic.

Combined with the colours of some of the icons it reminds me a little of the old Fisher Price toys for kids.

If Apple want to go a "cleaner" route I'm ok with that, but it'd need to be more elegant / professional for my taste.

In normal circumstances I'd agree with you MS, but I think nearly a third (as I type) expressing a dislike on this forum would be concerning as the vast majority of forum members strongly favour Apple products.

Also, it could be that a few of those who voted Yes skim read the question. If it was a straight, "Do you prefer iOS 7 to iOS 6?" I'd have said Yes. The OP was asking about the Icons and Colours, however.
