    I'm just an ordinary Joe who cannot wait to get his hands on iOS7.

    So I was wondering about all you lucky ones who all ready have it. What are people's reaction like when you show it off? You must do that I would!

    Do they like it hate it or not bothered?

    I would love to see it for real instead of just reading about it on here for the next few long months.

    Personally for me, only my girl friends seem to be all excited about it. The guys seem contented with their jail breaks. Lol

    Lots of jealousy, I'm surprised by the number of friends paying 99 bucks just to put it on their device early. I sent a screenshot of a message conversation to my best friend and within an hour he had paid for a developer account and installed it just off that one screenshot. (all guys btw, even though that doesn't really matter)

    Many people wanted it right then. I got one "but, but, they got rid of the metals and denim!"

    I just said "yeah, that's the point! Now I'm not going android after all."

    Thank you. Everyone showing it off is breaking the NDA they signed. If you like what apple has shown, be patient or pay to use it but remember its a beta and you aren't supposed to be showing it off...

    I am blown away by how many people just don't care about the things they sign and they throw their screenshots and videos all over the internet.

    I don't think the NDA applies to things that Apple has already publicly disclosed. There's nothing I can show my friends that they can't already see on Apple's website.

    My, my...an actual adult in the crowd.

    Consider the possibility that the bloke is a woman, and she showed it to her girlfriends.

    The last time I checked, I am indeed still a dude. No plans of changing that. Haha! Anyways, my girl friends were like, "Wow! Pastel colours! Transparencies! Get it on my phone!"

    Everyone I've shown seems to like it. The receptionist at work pretty much immediately handed me her iPhone to put it on (unfortunately I had to decline). I tend to show off the usability improvements more than the look though. Ie., "Check it! You don't have to download a stupid flashlight app that needs data to load the on button!," or "Wow! You can put more than 9 things in a folder!"

    I showed it to a group of the ladies that I play mixed doubles with and they all agreed that it (b2 at the time) was really hard to see/read and looked kinda plain.

    Disclosure: This was outside and the women ranged in age from 28-50 and all but one had an iPhone already.

    Don't have iOS 7 but I showed the screenshots on Apple's iOS 7 page to some friends with iPhones and iPod touches and they seemed indifferent. It's a design that surprises you at first because it's different from what you're used to, but at the end of the day everything about it in real world use is exactly the same as previous version of iOS, there's no real innovation here. You can invert the colours in iOS 6 and get much the same thing.

    Don't get me wrong, it looks nice, but once the novelty wears off it's just nothing special.

    Well then you best contact Apple and get them to take down their screenshots too! And what's this? MacRumors Forums has a whole section devoted to iOS 7? Best take that down as well, your post and all! You can't discuss iOS 7! NDA! Contract! Secrets! Yada yada yada...
