    Hi. The animation is ugly when you close an app with 5 or 4 fingers. It seems to lag at the end with and apps drop like hell !! I hope apple will fix this ugly thing IMO.

    What do you feel with this animations? I found iOS 6 better.

    It can't be meant to be that way. It bothers me too. I think they just didn't spend enough time polishing the iPad as the focus was on iPhone.

    Very disappointing from a company known for attention to detail.

    If it isnt bug or lag i will sell my iPad. They killed gestures with iOS7 so buggy and laggy.

    I don't like it... I think iOS 7 is not optimised for iPad at all...

    Also, look at the dock when pinching. It changes color and looks broken.

    You think they will fix all this animations after the arrival of news iPad 5 and iPad mini 2 ? I wanna buy an iPad mini but I'm really disappointed about iOS for iPad. I feel better with iOS but I can't found one without iOS 7 !!

    Those times are long gone. Every software OR hardware Apple is currently selling are at a unacceptable quality control form. Every single one.

    I've been a happy camper for almost 10 years. Not anymore.

    iOS 7 should be a very good os if people could complain about animations ... :rolleyes:

    I really think there's no place like this forum where you can find people complaining almost about everything ...

    iOS 7 is far from being perfect, and there are a couple of problems I really hope they'll fix soon (iMessage and battery drain), but speak about colors and animations like First World Problems .... give me a rest ...

    Steve Jobs is gone, and the attention to details is gone with him. There is no one who would look really closely at the icon colors or animations now. We may not like it, but I guess someone at Apple decided that the majority of users would not care about animations. Or gradients. Or that "hon" label on 5c.

    Welcome to the new Apple.

    Yes, every product released under Steve Jobs was perfect and flawless just like he was. :rolleyes:

    Yeah, if you do the gesture really slowly you'll see that when the two middle icons on the second row of the homescreen reach their default position, the rest of the icons will stop moving altogether, even if you keep moving your fingers. When you release the rest jump into place which makes it feel so disjointed.

    Dunno, Mountain Lion is one of the most quality releases of OS X. It rivals Snow Leopard even.

    So, in my view, "Every single one" is therefore false.

    I do agree about iOS 7, however. It's much better on the iPhone, but there's little things here and there that makes the whole thing feel... unpolished.

    I'm giving Apple a few more point updates to clean the worst offenders. But I'm exepcting a much more polished OS in iOS 8, which should be the tick to iOS 7's tock.

    Done with MacRumors, the trolls have won
    So much hyperbole in this thread.

    I'm going to sell my *insert Apple device here* if *insert minor issue here* doesn't get fixed!

    *Insert Apple software or product here* would be perfect if Steve Jobs was still around!

    Fine then. Resurrect Jobs or switch to Android. You still won't be happy either way.

    On what planet are iMessage and battery drain 3rd world problems?...this is an Apple forum, and these people are describing issues with their products that concern them, including appearance and performance, which damn sure are customer considerations ...I get so tired of seeing the flippant "First World problems" retort...all these things are First World problems...just because you have a different set of them doesn't mean yours is valid and everyone else's isn't

    iMessage hanging and battery drain are real problems affecting the phone functionality .... Animations are merely a cosmetic issue


    Exactly ...

    When Jobs was alive and Android less popular there were whiners nevertheless .... saying the same "10 years ago Apple was another thing"

    I really dont like the new animation of closing aapp with 5 fingers. Loved to play around with it.

    It's not about that particular animation. iPad and iOS 7 simply don't match, at least for now.

    It's laggy as hell, so I'm seriously thinking about downgrading to iOS 6.

    Unfortunately, you can't downgrade. Apple stopped signing iOS 6 over week ago.

    No, merely cosmetic issues would be saying " the icons and colors are ugly"...if the animations are choppy and laggy, this is a performance issue which affects how a user interacts with the device, and is most definitely functionality

    Ooh... I totally missed that. But there must be an "unofficial way" of solving it...

    Your iPad must be messed up.

    I absolutely agree that Apple needs to sort something out with iOS 7 (how's that for an understatement); however, I'd say that at worst this animation isn't fluid and needs a slight tweak. I certainly don't see how this is an issue with the functionality of the device as it doesn't effect any of its functions (at least none that I can think of...let me know if you can).

    On my iPad 2, not only is it laggy and horrible - but all my App icons are pixelated so badly! It looks really bad :( don't get me wrong, I totally love Apple and get psyched for all their product launches - and I think iOS 7 is a great improvement...but there are a lot of bugs and stupid little mistakes that need ironed out (more than I found in 4, 5 and 6 when released)

    I hope it's fixed soon; cause I wanna buy an iPad 5 if it comes with Touch ID and camera improvements :D

    Definitely an understatement. To me, if it affects how a user interacts with the device, it is functionality - it's not a judgement call like "the icons are yucky" or "the 5c plastic back looks cheap". How well the OS works and how pleasant the customer experience are tied to device usage. But that's just me, your mileage may vary.
