Anyone else think the green Apple is using in iOS 7 is too neon? Phone app, icons and the like. Just too bright.

Features are great. But colors are something a 13 year old girl would have came up with. It's also not the 80's anymore....

The neon green "in-call" banner is too much for me. I can't read the white text that overlays it. I'm not sure if "overlays" is a real word/verb, but it seemed to fit.

Unfortunately the colours are designed to match the 5C.

The Fluorescent Green, Pinky Red of Music, Blue of App Store, Yellow of Notes etc.

Throughout the beta I hoped for an alternative theme more suitable to the 5S and available as an option for everyone else.

It hasn't happened as yet.

They have to tone down the neon right across the board. The neon red on the badge app icons are too bright and they just scream in your face if all the apps on a screen (or even one app within each folder should suffice) have a badge icon, especially if you have a lighter background :(

neon is super-in-style...but styles change.

but they will not change them, get used to it. Flipboard updated their icon from a dark red to pink-ish red...

bright, garish, neon is in style...get used to it.

I love it. I have the green dynamic for lock screen and the green stills for the home screen. Goes good with my dark green case lol
