    I'm surprised Rene had time to write that. He's usually busy taking pictures of himself.

    I installed iOS 7 beta to take classy pictures of myself, now that Apple included photo filters.

    Does that count as classy? :rolleyes: I hate the word classy

    BTW, I have it installed on my "main phone." It's working fine for me.

    You just don't understand.

    I found a bug in beta 1 and I simply must start a thread about it.

    I'm having a hard time believing that anyone would actually do this.

    It's happened a lot in the past under iOS 5 and iOS 6 betas (and I'm sure it's been happening before that as well)

    I agree that it seems unbelievable that someone would leave an AppStore review complaining that an app doesn't work on beta software, but it happens a lot.

    Personally, I couldn't care less what he says. I use iOS 7 beta as a daily driver and I don't have any problems. If I did I would downgrade. Why are we still beating this dead horse? People will do what they wish.

    You understand what a beta is, but many others don't and take this time to install a beta software and then flock to forums to complain about things not working properly.

    Now this app got a 2 star rating because the commenter doesn't understand what a beta is, and this happens very often and it causes these apps to get overall low ratings.

    "Oh no! I couldn't possibly have the riff-raff installing the same iOS I'm beta testing. Then it wouldn't be exclusive."

    Yeah, whatever. I'm using it as my daily driver and it's fine, thanks.

    You're never going to stop it, those who want it will get it regardless of how much developers kick up a fuss. Even if Apple managed to end udid registration, many would simple buy the developer account and maybe share the cost with friends!

    So the solution is to stop allowing ratings from beta software!

    Yes, yes yes. It's unreal how touchy some people get about this. As if "how dare you tell me if can install something or not". But Apple makes it clear that the beta is for developers, not the general public that just wants to check it out. I wonder how many of the latter actually read through the release notes, do proper testing and report feedback to Apple? Or how many install it find bugs & crappy battery life and then go online to whine about it sucking and being one of the the worst OS updates ever. :rolleyes:

    It is a very good post and should be stickied as long as you get rid of the red smilies in your signature. ;)

    Shouldn't Rene be busy photoshopping an iPhone into a comic book character's movie poster or something?

    Who has that much time on their hands to worry this much about what other people do with their time.Falls in line with the people that constantly raise the "its a Beta" and "that is against the NDA"

    I agree. This is almost as bad as the jailbreak debate. It's not against the law to install iOS 7 and Apple spells out the risks pretty clearly when you sign up. It's a shame that some get their panties in a bunch over this.
