There are some icons that I don't like in the new iOS but most of that is personal preferences. I am just glad we are moving away from those tacky diagonal stripes in Phone and Messages. WTF was that??? :confused:

I like the look and aesthetics of it from what I've seen in the keynote address and around here in the forums. I feel it's a nice refresh of the UI and I look forward to using it later this year upon release.

I love it, don't like the safari icon, but that's my only gripe, along with the tap to tweet/FB in notification centre. Both of which will be dealt with by GM I suspect

There was a similar thread where the poll questions could probably have been tweaked.
That thread didn't tell us anything about what people think of the new look and feel. Many IOS7 UI critics believe that the positives (i.e., the new features) more than outweigh the negatives.

Some members believe that OS7 is essentially ready for release, as is, after some bug fixes. I want to see how those folks compare, in numbers, to those that believe that aesthetic changes are needed before release.

Seems a bit skewed. Four questions: 1) prefer older icons, 2) need to tweak new icons, 3) revamp completely the new icons, or 4) they're okay. Seems to me to be a poll more about how many people can you get to agree that the new icons are crap. :rolleyes:

I love it. Fresh, clean and elegant.
Just one minor complaint - the Safari icon.
I hope they change that one, its really distracting!

I think the top one is a strange option. I love iOS 7, but I don't want to see it in OS X.

You commented in my poll earlier about how it would be a different story if it was about aesthetics, yet 3/4 of your options are about functionality? :confused:

I agree, I love everything about iOS 7 apart from the Safari icon and the Reminders icon.

It would only make sense. I think it's coming.
I think they are slowly going to bring more features from iOS to OS X but I don't think they are going to look the same.

Just about everyone approves of the functionality, so I wanted to take that out of the equation.

I think Jony Ive made it fairly clear that the IOS design philosophy reflects Apple's new direction.

But you didn't? That's my point.

EDIT: Just realised all the options are pro functionality. Sorry about that, I misread the options :eek:

Don't read into things like that. Jony was talking about iOS, he hasn't mentioned anything to do with OS X, while I am not saying that it won't happen, you are simply assuming and nothing more.

These are 2-bit icons. There's no detail. And people like this?

What happened to the retina display?

Actually, no, he wasn't speaking about IOS when he discussed Apple's new design philosophy (grid, etc.). Future OSX icons may not look exactly the same, but they should follow the company's new design philosophy.

If you really like the new icons, I don't see why they should bother you on OSX.

Because I don't see them fitting with OS X, that's why. Again, he never mentioned OS X, so you are assuming. For all we know, he may be referring to software on an Apple Television or an iWatch.

You do realise that beyond the icon there is a whole world of content which still looks stunning on retina don't you?

End of the world much?
The whole design of iOS has been downgraded to 2-bit images. It's just empty.

I don't see why Jony Ive would have two different design philosophies. However, a moderator has agreed to change the text in option #1 to address your concern (thanks Sandbox!).

The OP asked me to update the first choice in the poll for him.

Original: I love the new OS7 font, icons, and color scheme. I can't wait to see them in OSX!

New: I love the new OS7 font, icons, and color scheme. Don't change a thing!

I re-watched the video entitled 'Apple - iOS 7' and i believe he is talking about iOS and nothing else. And maybe because they are different products? They don't need to be the same. As I said, it's simply an assumption.
