I had not seen a dedicated thread for this and I know it happens every beta. :D

Happy testing!

-Settings app. Brightness & Wallpaper wrong lock screen preview.
-Settings app. Notification Center. Does not show preview of Alert Styles.
-Settings app. Wrong app icon for: App Store, Contacts, Calendars, and iTunes Store. (also in iCloud backup tab it does not have an app icon for mail.) (More wrong icons in Restrictions: Camera, FaceTime, iTunes, Siri.)
-Settings app. Restrictions. Keypad for passcode is light grey, hard to see.
-Videos app. Many bugs. Inverting colors, Freezing, Crashing, disappearing episodes.
Messages app. Deleting a text within a conversation crashes it.
-Lockscreen. Clock will overlap music controls.

Any other apps you guys finding that won't work?

I'm a dev...but this is also my only iPhone...so I want to upgrade, but don't want to lose functionality on my most used apps...

Cool thread, but started too early imo. I think a fresh one specific to issues is good

I haven't installed it on my primary iPhone yet – trying to decide if I can live without MLB At Bat on my iPhone. If you have a specific app in mind, I'd be happy to give it a try on the iPhone 4 I've got iOS 7 installed on.

Runkeeper track GPS okay?
Downcast is probably my most used app

Gmail?

Wow - I've got to say that the changes Apple has made are freaking enormous.

Just looking through the HIG (yes, there's a HIG for iOS now!), I expect that it will take a lot of work from a lot of developers to have their apps take full advantage of iOS7.

There's a lot of really, really nice stuff in there, but it is a big change.

Lots of apps that customize the color of the UINavigationBar don't display correctly and revert back to the stock iOS nav bar color. Looking at finding more bugs. Kinda miss iOS 6 now lol.

EDIT: Apps that customize UIAlertViews will display incorrectly or not at all, i.e a download progress bar added to a UIAlertView will not be visible.

Downcast – downloaded a podcast & played without problems

Gmail – installed and ran without problems

Runkeeper – I don't use this app, but I did start an activity and then stop it, and my location came up on the app's GPS. So I'm assuming it works.

Exchange – I don't have any email address with an Exchange account, so I couldn't test this. However, in the Mail settings, there's still the option to setup an account using an Exchange server, so at the very least, it's not going away.

Netflix (as well as MLB At-Bat) had the same issue with the iOS 5 & iOS 6 betas. I wouldn't expect either of them to work until the RC comes along sometime in the Fall.
MLB fixed the app during the beta period. They had enough complaints they fixed the bug.

Exchange email is working for me
