Is it just me or does Reduce Motion set to on make getting in and out of apps way quicker? I can not believe it it's like night and day all that effect motion crap does is make things bloated

iOS 7 isn't slow to start with, just the animation length is. So yeah, apps will probably seem snappier with Reduce Motion enabled as the animations aren't taking up time. The animations are much better and more tolerable in 7.1 :)

I sure hope so. The only reason I have reduce motion on is because the stock animations are so slow, even though I prefer the zooming animation to the fading one.

I was finding myself getting annoyed at the animation length in 7.0.X but since I've been on the 7.1 beta's I'm quite happy with how everything is. Not sure how it is on the older devices, but its nice and snappy on a 5s and 5. On an iPhone 4, i've found reduce motion a necessity to make the phone not crawl completely

I have a 5, so I should see the same results you are.

So it isnt all in my head running on a 5 and turning it off made things x2 smoother and faster no question.

Btw 7.1 pfft can we fast forward to iOS 8?? iOS 7 has been nothing but hot garbage and I've had every iOS since the iPhones launch
