    90% of iOS 7 is absolutely atrocious and hideous, IMO. Nice new wallpapers, but the bottom BLOCK of a dock ruins them. :( .... guess i'll get use to it......

    Are you using the GM or just speaking from what you're seen in pictures and video?

    Just installed the GM on my iPhone 5, so first time seeing it full in my hands. A lot of the icons are ugly or don't even make sense. Wtf Gamecenter?

    Open Gamecenter..it will make sense.

    I didn't like the icons at first. After a week, I was fine with them. After a month, I loved them.

    Yes, I know. Each bubble is "ABC". But it's [GAME]CENTER. Not bubbles. Should of made it looks like news stand with game looking icons.

    OP: I agree with you, I want to see what the world says once it's released, not what the the fanboys in this forum say/think.

    I'm an Android user - Android Stock on Google's Nexus 4, and iOS7 doesn't remind me of 4.3 Jelly Bean at all.

    My first computer had a whopping 40 MB hard drive. Now my MacBook Pro has a 1 TB hard drive. Amazing how far we've come!

    I still haven't tried it because I don't want to lose my jailbreak. If someone would release an iOS 6.1.3 jailbreak in the next few days I could try the GM, realise I don't like it, downgrade, and then jailbreak again. Probably not gonna happen though. :(

    My first computer has a 10MB HD. Full height!

    Regarding iOS 7: It will grow on you. Give it a chance ;)

    I've been running it since Beta 1. iOS6 looks so dated after you use iOS 7 for a while.

    iOS 7 is the distillation of everything Apple has learned about the iPhone since the original launched in June of 2007, and simply put, it's beautiful. You'll end up liking it and wonder how you ever lived with the skeuomorphic design of all previous versions.

    But you don't keep games in there. That'd be confusing.

    You'd think with so many armchair designers in the world, we'd all have much nicer armchairs.

    My thoughts exactly, lol. IOS 7 has been around for 3 months and people still have the need to open a thread on how ugly it is. A comment in one of dozen threads would be enough, thank you very much. We get it, some people here dont like the looks of iOS 7, AND think their expert designer opinion is so important to warrant opening a new thread.(More so, it won't suddenly make it look more beautiful to YOU) If you don't like it don't install it, and stay with soon to be obsolete iOS 6 :)

    That would be cool if we could IMO. If games stored like mags do on News stand on a "game shelf" it would be cool and save icon space/pages on the home screen.

    Cool story you wrote there. Yet, you still came here to express your opinions. Kind of hypocritical, right?

    Thanks for the update, Jony Ive.

    Speaking as non biased as possible, I think I can conclude my take as follows:

    App icons: Beauty is in the eyes of beholder, but to me, about 1/3 are clearly uglier than iOS 6. But ultimately, most are decent enough looking for me not to get all worked up about. And about half are about as same as iOS 6 (minus the gloss).

    Toolbar icons: I didn't like Android-inspired toolbar icons at first, but now I like them overall. They blend in much better against text.

    Font: I maybe in the minority, but I liked wider use of lighter font in earlier betas. Apple probably struck better balance in later beta for most people, but I would've liked a choice. Anyway, typography is problematic on the home screen, where lack of outline and/or shadow makes text difficult to read unless you have the right set of wallpaper.

    Animation: Some of the animations cues are well done, but longer animations get quickly tiresome and in the way of doing things.

    I would most def. agree with the animations. Fading on/off is a little stupid IMO. I have to wait like a second to get the time, when in standby mode.
