    Since I got the 5s,
    I tried the parallax effect earlier with 7.0x but didn't like that animation when you close an app and return to the home screen. After updating to 7.1, I decided to give it try again and that animation looks really annoying.
    If I remember correctly, previously all apps used to zoom from all the corners to the center (I see that on my 3GS). Has it been changed in 7.1? and how many of you actually use it?
    I just wanted to try the parallax wallpaper but this animation made me to turn reduce motion back on again.

    I have reduce motion on because I hate the app opening and closing animations. They're cheesy and annoying.

    Yes. I also found this, set to ON by default in iOS 7.1:

    I don't know how many times and ways this can be said. Reduce motion on will not increase your battery life.

    I don't use "reduce motion". That's just my preference.

    It would be nice is to be able to separately turn on parallax wallpaper without the app animation. Is there a way to do this in 7.1?
    Was this animation supposed to be a feature? Glad that at least they allow to turn it off otherwise this alone would have been a compelling reason to consider android!

    Parallax wallpaper movement is SO subtle and jerky, it's not even worth having as a feature. Pointless.

    Not the parallax wallpaper, the app animation was it supposed to be a feature?
    Parallax alone would be nice though.

    Of course there is, it was one of the changes in 7.1. WHn you set your wallpaper or lockscreen just turn off prescriptive zoom.

    Exactly. It just gets rid of the animations. No significant impact on battery life.

    I keep it off, I like the animations.

    Well it uses the accelerometer every time which makes sense if it uses a little more battery, that's how i see it, but maybe you're right...

    I have my Reduced Motion set to Off -purely because I think the fade in and out animations (instead of the zooming in and out) when opening and closing apps, looks SO much better than the zooming nonsense....!!!

    I have it off. The animations actually make me feel a little nauseous.

    Off all time. I have no problems with animations.

    Btw, this kind of thread needs a poll!

    So you are saying you actually have the reduce motion setting turned on (to turn off the zooming animations).

    Do you keep Reduce Motion on?


    Correct. It is on to turn the animations off. I should have worded it better.

    I always keep it on because I hate the animations they introduced in iOS 7.0.
    Since 7.1 came up, some animations related to the task switcher are gone because of a bug they introduced, yet I still don't turn this setting off and prefer transitions without any kind of animation. At least until they release an update to fix that annoying bug.

    This thread should have been a poll.

    It will have some effect on battery life, how could it not? The parallax effect uses the motion sensor and also the processor. 5S and 4S users generally get good battery life from iOS7 but most i5 users do not. It is we who need to turn all the goodies off in order to maximise our battery life.
    I don't mind having reduce motion on though because the app opening and closing animations are awful.

    Why would 4S that has worse hardware, less memory, and even slightly smaller battery actually get better battery life than a 5 in relation to all of this?

    I used to keep Reduced Motion turned on.

    Now I have Reduced Motion turned off.

    I did it because I like it better now.

    Is this an exciting post...or what!:p

    I would rather keep perspective zoom for the lock screen wallpaper and parallax effect on and turn-off the app animation while unlocking and closing an app.
    Is this possible to do in 7.1?
