    I saw a post that iOS7 in iPad is not good. Is that true? The Animations are running very sluggishly. Some staples of iPad gestures are slightly muddled in beta. The whole concept of multitasking in iOS 7 is also less tablet friendly & Non-retina screens are not going to looks as great with iOS 7. I dont know if this is true or not. Hope to have your opinions. :confused:

    It's only beta. Don't expect it to run fluidly. for that you will have to wait until fall when iOS 7 officially releases.

    I read that it was good, considering its still beta software. But you are correct that the Retina screen will look better than the non retina...but that's true for iOS6.

    It's bad form to comment negatively on any beta.

    All issues should be pushed up the bug ladder to the developer.

    Here are my useless opinions and observations:
    iOS7 on an iPad2 looks great
    iOS7 on an iPad3 and iPad4 looks AMAZING
    iOS7 multitasking is AMAZING

    The beta is out so that we developers can get our apps working smoothly before gold hits.

    Apple could care less if people actually used it. What they do care about is if you pay for it or not. If they really only wanted it for devs they could have done something with the activation proccess

    Huh?

    If you're not a developer, your opinion on beta software is absolutely pointless.

    I agree!

    Ahuh! That's why I want some opinions because I'm not a developer :p
    And I just saw this post. It'snot my opinion at all

    I did not load the beta and this thread is better served elsewhere.

    The beta has been good to me so far, excited for the next revision to hopefully fix some of the crashes that are expected.

    Is that neat trick on the iphone where you can swipe between pages on safari possible on the ipad, rather tapping the forward and back buttons?

    There is no iOS7 beta for iPad. Someone hacked the iPad simulator that is shipped to iPhone software developers to run the iOS7 beta for iPhone, on the iPad. And yes, if you run unmodified iPhone software on the iPad, it often doesn't look as good as you would hope.

    It was made available for iPad as of last Monday when beta 2 was released.

    Confirmed! It's so bad I had to go back to version 6. Safari crashes, ipad ramdon pauses, rotation glitches, etc etc...

    I hope so. I got used to that so quickly I keep trying to do it on my iOS6 devices.

    I guess that's really the bad thing if we upgrade to beta :eek:

    Yeah. Although I don't really want to go into too much detail, beta 2 on the iPad (3rd Gen) is very buggy and slow, and unusable at times. But considering 2 weeks ago we had no beta at all, that was to be expected.

    Part of the problem is that certain applications feel like they actually just taken the iPhone app and scaled it up, so you have the EXACT same interface as the iPhone but just over a larger area. i.e. Rather than having a grid of albums in music, you now have a list. Not sure if this was intentional, but we'll find out.

    I can't say I'm a fan of the dock on the iPad. It looks okay on the iPhone but on the bigger screen it's just too in your face.

    Don't count on it. That is what everyone said about Apple maps when it first was released as a beta...
