Does anybody actually use this wallpaper?

I really don't get this one. The wallpaper itself isn't that bad, but when it's used on the homescreen, it just looks horrific. I don't understand what Apple was thinking here. Although, I do set it to my wallpaper just because it has that "it's so bad it's good" charm. :p

Yeah, this wallpaper is bad, and I am even a fan of the new look of iOS7. The only reason I can think they used it in addition to the nebula wallpaper and dynamic wallpapers was to show that iOS7 can change its text to black with a light background. But even then, they should have been able to find something better.

They're all over the place. Heck Passbook doesn't even have the glare that almost every other icon has. Why doesn't Music have the diagonal line texture that Messages and Phone have?
Why don't the mail and safari gradients on iOS 7 look the same? Why does Game Center have glossy bubbles, or contacts and passbook have shadows? Icons don't need to be perfectly consistent, and using a grid to create them can often exacerbate things.

GC has bubbles because that's the app's interface, I agree they should be flat. They are strangely inconsistent with the glare. Almost every app has that glare but a couple of the icons do not. Weird.

Apple fans are the worst poeple in the world, they love apple so much they would never admit iOS 7 is uglier than Android

I am using that exact wallpaper on iOS 6 right now. I like it. It tends to blend with some icons more than others though. There are infinite wallpapers out there because there is infinite personal preferences among users. Just because you hate it doesn't mean others don't like it.
