Oh, don't misunderstand. I hate 7.x because I was forced to it. I'm not on iOS 8 and I would dearly love to return to iOS 6. That's the version on my iPhone 5 that I was forced to give up when I had to replace the phone.Tell that to my iPad2, which has become a snail under iOS8.

I'm hoping a miracle happens and I can downgrade to iOS 6 at some point. But I'll probably die an old man waiting before then.
LOL, yeah. I really hate this version of iOS and I've never hated iOS before. So, this is a new thing for me.I'd gladly join you in hoping for that downgrade...except that too many apps I have were getting to the point where you couldn't update without going up to iOS 7. So I gave up and upgraded to 7.1.2 at the same time I got the whole iPhone 5 battery recall issue fixed a couple of weeks ago.
I just wish 8 was something to look forward to instead of more of the same unicorn puke!
It sticks in my craw because the apps I had in iOS 6 were working for me. I could do everything I wanted to do. That is, nothing that I do on my phone on a routine basis requires that I have iOS 7. I get it in your case and I get it in the case of a lot of other users.
Unfortunately for me, it didn't stay that way.
Wow, really? Yesterday I finally upgraded my iPhone 5 from 6.1 to 7.1.2, because most of my favorite apps were no longer being updated (i was missing out on new features and / or bug fixes), and was unable to install many apps because they required IOS 7. Not to mention the fact that FaceTime won't work on IOS 6. Luckily I did it at the last possible second...
Quite frankly I can't believe I waited so long. IOS 7 is a vast improvement over 6. Scroll down to Version History and look at all the new features:
I have all my old JB apps and tweaks working, with the exception of Voicemail Forwarder and LockInfo. And there is no need for SBSettings, as Control Center does everything I need and is much cleaner.
To each his own I guess...

Well, I really only use about five apps. Facebook, FB Messenger, Starbucks, Dolphin, Email. Those were all working. I could make phone calls and BiteSMS had me covered for SMS/iMessage.
Yes, Bite works in iOS 7. But, I have to use version 8.x. I preferred version 7.6.8 which has a Text Heads feature that has since been removed.
I ask you too. Where is Dashboard X? Gridlock? How come I can only now have four icons across in a folder instead of five? FolderEnhancer still works, but it doesn't allow for five rows.
I hate Control Center and Apple decimated the NC. Gone are NCSettings! Gone is my weather and quite a few of my NC widgets. Forecast on the lockscreen is a joke. The weather icon is in the wrong place and it's not an HTC icon. It's not prominent. Oh sure, I get animated weather now, but guess what? I can't use my own background!
A dev updated a system info widget for the NC the other day. That's great, but I can't put it on my Springboard.
This screenshot is my iOS 6 lockscreen. No way I can get this now. Gone are LivePapers and my Nexus Livepaper.
Gone are a lot of things. And in it's place I get a fruitcake iOS!
