    Just curious...are you using iOS 7 as a daily driver on your main device(s)?

    Feel free to explain below.

    Yes.

    For beta 1, wow it's stable. There's of course occasional bugs but nothing too serious!

    I'm using this on my daily ride, after seeing how stable it was on my dev phone. This is far more stable than ios6 beta 1. I have had quite a few phone restarts, but they are SOOOO much faster than before that it seems like a minor inconvenience.

    I remember last year some of the betas had better battery life than the others. I hope they improve it throughout the beta period, seems like an issue so far in the dev forums.

    So far it's not bad. It's really just a matter of ignoring the colors, until they just blend into the background like anything else new. Conversely I find the notifications are as nice as those on my Nexus 4. Apple's now on the right track.

    Lots of people using this. Interesting. I personally really like the new UI and prefer it over iOS 6. Once all the graphical and battery kinks are worked out, it'll be really great.

    Yes, surprisingly stable for a beta 1 release. I'm loving it and can't wait to see it getting refined all the way until a GM release.

    Yep. :) A few bugs here and there and definitely needs some speed/ui tweaks... but that will come in time. Like others have said, it's a surprisingly stable beta.

    My battery life is actually considerably better. My phone did not like 6.1.4.

    I used it on my 4S but it was slower than I could bear for anything other than testing.

    Yep. No problems so far (which surprised me to be honest).

    Very impressed as well. The perfect blend of all the mobile operating systems, just about.

    It's going to be hit or miss for folks depending on what they need and if it's broken (both native iOS 7 and third party app incompatibility).

    Interesting that people who are using it on a daily basis don't seem to hate it.

    Think it speaks to the fact that you can't evaluate something through screenshots or touching it once.

    I love it! There are quite a few glitches at this point, which is to be expected from a first beta, but overall it's pretty damn awesome!

    Yep at first I thought I wouldn't but using it I can not go back to ios6, yea some icons I dislike but the overall new interface is lovely. Screenshots do it no justice. You need to use this to see why.

    I wish there was a way that could be better communicated. Hopefully MR will put up a post on their front page that has feedback from those who are using it extensively. That's the kind of information I want. Not knee jerk reactions based on screen shots or app icon design comparisons.

    Yea man I'm loving this. Even this minor bugs aren't upsetting me. Have you been using it as your daily driver?
