All aspects considered, how do you like the new direction of iOS?

Is the new visual style an improvement and make it feel fresh, or does it just not "do it" for you?

Do you think the new UI elements progress the way you interact with the device, or does it feel like the same old iOS with a fresh coat of paint?

Do you think the redesigned apps have a better user experience than before, or does it just not make much difference to you?

As the owner of the Samsung Galaxy Note II, IOS 7 is defiantly a HUGE step up from IOS 6. maybe they could of added some more features to multitasking, Siri...etc. But,

overall appeal of IOS 7 to me. 8/10

I like the overall feeling of it. But I don't like the icons. Please change those before release!

i'd say better than before. still would like widgets though..
Me too, although not necessarily widgets. I am really missing an Apple-esque solution to glaceable information that would bring some more utility to the home screen.

I think it looks nice but there's not any more substance. Interaction with the device is still the basic paradigm of jumping into and back out of single-serving apps.

Functionality is amazing, but doesn't look good. I don't know what Apple Designers were doing all this time..:confused:

I probably have about 2 hours of testing thus far. I really like the direction they are heading.

One of the things I keep noticing is how vibrant it looks on the screen. It seems as if it is much closer to the glass and the vivid colors are off the charts. I almost can't believe it is the same phone. I don't know how to describe it, but you'll see.

When I look at iOS 6 on my iPad, it looks extremely old and rudimentary. The sum of the parts add up into a great update.
