Does anyone else find the new scrubber on the music player to be... Horrible?

    The scrubber before was a small yet easily touchable knob... I can't be the only one who finds controlling a tiny little narrow slit to be lame and much harder to use. Half the time I can't even move it.

    More and more I'm starting to dislike iOS 7.

    Yep, thanks to the "much improved" and "modern" UI design pushing thin, minimalist "stripping of ornamentation".

    The problem is, they've stripped a lot of the ease-of-use along with it.

    But, it's touted as being such an improved design...

    Yep, I never liked it on my girlfriend's iPad in iOS 6 and I hate that it has made it over to the iPhone in iOS 7. Another dumb change.

    I would much prefer larger, easier to use controls to the album art taking up most of the screen. Or better yet, have the album art cover the whole screen, then with a tap activate full-screen controls with nice big handles and buttons.

    I don't have a problem with it in the music app. But it's frustrating to use in the lockscreen on my 4s.

    Yep. Noticed it today. Tried using it on the lock screen which took several attempts.

    Yeah, it seems worse on the lock screen

    Works fine for me! Guess it"s all to do with finger size - or just plain clumsiness!!

    That would be a nice solution.

    My biggest problem with iOS7 really is the music player controls, because I use it so much.
