Very cool. If you you don't already, you should follow Adam on twitter. Funny guy.

Interesting! :) Now it's easy to spot people using iOS 7 by hearing the default text 'Tri-tone' :D

Good find! I was always surprised that with Steve Jobs's aesthetic taste that the notification sounds were so bad on iOS (and the Mac for that matter). The iOS 7 sounds are MUCH improved.

The thing about these sounds is that they shouldn't draw too much attention to themselves.

Great.

iOS 7's new sounds are a really big improvement, something that should get talked about more in light of the disappointment over the icons :)

Definitely didn't expect this. Cool that Apple does this with others collaborations.

I hate Owl City so bad. That guy doesn't have an ounce of talent in my opinion. (Don't get me wrong, I'm glad he's successful and lots of people like him) but I personally can't stand his autotuned garbage.

Ah, so that explains the 80's "synth" :p

Seriously though, some do seem less "quality" compared to iOS 6 and earlier, almost "Arcade" in tone.

"Aurora" seems almost a cut from the track "Fireflies".

I have always been a fan of Adams work. I also was a fan of the new ringtones in iOS 7, and thought that they could hold their own as a song. That explains it.

Keep it up Adam!

I like these tones, these are really fresh!

"By The Seaside" is awful, "Playtime" even worse. It's good that most are shorter than the far too long iOS 6 sounds, but some aren't short and sound like an Atari game. The Alert Tones are good, the Ringtones, not so much.
