    hey guys, I think it's better to make the dock area transparent, at least as transparent as folder.:D

    Ok, so why did you feel you needed to create an entirely new thread to tell us this?

    Speaking critical of IOS7 is strongly discouraged in the IOS7 forum.

    That's not necessarily the problem. It's that this forum is not the place to make design suggestions. Those should be sent to Apple.

    Although I agree that design suggestions should be sent to Apple, there's no reason they can't also be discussed here. This is an iOS 7 discussion forum after all.

    Sure they can. But reading the original post makes it sounds like this is intended for Apple not for discussion.

    I didn't perceive it that way, especially since it was prefaced with "hey guys." Sounded to me like it was aimed at us.

    To each his own but the wording of the post sounded to me like it was meant for Apple.

    Right after beta 1 was released to developers, some noticed that the iOS 7 version Apple was using in their WWDC sessions was different. The screenshot below comes from one of those official videos and clearly shows a dock that's more transparent. I kinda like it better that way. Still holding out hope that they will change it to that.

    Oh yes, that's much better! I hope they implement that sometime between now and the GM.

    It's missing the blur. The transparency looks similar to how it always has been in iOS7 betas.

    True, with the blur it would definitely look better.

    I don't think I've seen anything in iOS 7 that looks like the dock in that picture. And the lack of blur = more transparent so the wallpaper is clearer behind it.

    ----------

    I don't understand. The blur makes it look exactly like in the current implementation in beta 4.

    Exactly, and that fits with Apple's design philosophy of getting the UI out of the way of the content. In this case, the wallpaper is the content, and there's no need to obscure it with a nearly opaque dock.

    Worse, the current dock makes any orangish wallpaper unusable because it turns the dock an ugly salmon color. Here's an example of what the dock actually looks like with such a wallpaper, and what it would look like if it were tinted instead.

    hey guys again,:D, i started this thread to just want to discuss it as a common issue or bug or something else alike rather than to send it to apple.

    thank "Gogurt48" for sharing your comparision screenshots, they look great and what i wanted is that kind of transparency.:)

    This!!!!

    ...the blurry less transparent version currently on iOS 7 can really look crappy with some backgrounds

    ----------

    I like this also...much better than what we see now
