    You may want to go to http://kik.com/

    and post your comments there since Apple has nothing to do with how Kik is designed.

    I wish it could get even flatter just to irritate people with bad attitudes.

    It's like obnoxious 1-star reviews, but on a message board.

    At least I don't complain about non-native apps.

    this thread was half telling people that theres an update, and half saying that it somehow ruins the effect iOS 7 was going for. I didn't want a circle jerk in this thread.

    Really? The text bubbles still have 'shadows', giving them an elevated look, etc.

    It's actually one of the less-flat iOS 7 facelifts I've seen.

    EDIT: sorry, I didn't realize there was actually a new update just now
    EDIT: still, it's a nice clean look. don't mind it at all.

    It's a free texting app, who really cares, I just use it to pick up on chicks. As long as I get pics it's fine with me...lol

    Can someone please explain to me why you would pay 2 bucks to have an addon for stickers? Also, what is the difference between a sticker and an emoji icon, which is already on the iPhone?

    That's what I thought. You have to be a bloody moron to pay for bigger emojis.

    I can't speak for everyone, but I personally really enjoy the new update from kik. It fits well with the iOS 7 theme. Very nice clean look.

    Well yeah that's a given but we are in a iOS 7 sub forum. Kik is not a native app in iOS 7 nor is it made by Apple so I don't quite understand who the OP is yelling at to change the design back. LOL :D

    The Kik app has never been too brilliant on any platform.

    It's quite popular with the twitter crowd in my experience.

    It actually looks clean and nice. Not sure why the OP has an issue.
