LONG time Mac Addict... but iOS 7 is Terrible ! :-(

But, i hate to say it, but iOS 7 is TERRIBLE ! It took my Hi-tech looking iPhone, and turned it into an ugly Samdung phone ! The new apple "flat look" app icons look like cheap, infant toy icons. :-(
The Hi-tech looking iPod section of the phone now looks cheap and unfinished... the Hi-tech Gray, has been replaced by a cheap look. You used to be able to grab the play cursor and drag to a different section of the song easily... now it is almost NON-functional.... dragging the very diffictult red play line now stutters and most of the time does not move to a different section in the song.
The Bottom line, is that I have LOVED Apple products for MANY years, i bought an iPhone, because I wanted the BEST, most functional, and aesthetically pleasing phone there is... instead, my iPhone has been converted into a half non-functional, ugly Samdung... if I had WANTED a Samdung, I would have BOUGHT a Samdung...
PLEASE restore the superior look and feel back to the iPhone !

The one thing that really annoys me is the ability to swipe right in Safari to go back and swipe left to go forward a page. In concept the idea is nice, but I find that I frequently go back a page when I am just trying to move around on a page (keep in mind that many webpage are not designed for the small screen of a smartphone, so you have to zoom in and scroll to read things).
There are certainly places where the flat look frankly looks like crap, but there are other places where it is OK. I do think that they put form over function in some places. Probably my biggest complain of the flat look is that many app developers are following suit and they are generally WAY worse when it comes to form over function than Apple is…Apple usually still get the "function" part pretty good even if they focus on the look/form foremost.
I do like the improvements in Mail.
