iOS7 managed; it's flat.

Sure, there are features in the core OS. But a lot of new functionality is being put into the upgradable user-space components. So my original point still stands - the OS version number is a lot less important that it used to be.

Much of the "core functionality" you list has been present in android for a long time, some since day one. Indeed, intent-based inter-app communication is about as fundamental to android as the app store is to iOS. I'm surprised you didn't mention systemwide UI performance, which was sadly neglected until recently. Unless Google Play gains the ability to patch core system components, the improvements in Project Butter and the like will only be realized through core OS updates.

I don't think that would make sense; with Safari you 'can go anywhere'. If the needle were to point to the East it could indicate you would be looking for some Asian websites

Don't you find it pathetic that you have to wait a year for any major new functionality to come to iOS? There are plenty of things in iOS 7 that Are NOT tied to low level OS functionality (which also is true for a huge number of features in previous iOS releases). And before you call me a liar spreading FUD, prove me wrong. Name one built in app that has had a major feature added since iOS 6.

No, since we don’t.

 

You might notice I didn’t list anything. Since you’d just decide nothing I listed was “major”, I decided not to play your game.

Yes, Google wants the fandroids to say that to hide the fact that most of them will never get security patches for their phone.

Oh, right, because no one who uses Android is capable of independent thought -- we're all just robotic slaves of the evil Google and Scamsung overlords, mindlessly parroting talking points. /s

 
Every thread has to be turned into some hateful ragefest against Android. Android must constantly be painted in a negative light, as must everyone who uses it. We must have hundreds of comments bellowing forth the unmatched unequivocal superiority of Apple, iOS, and their users.

I want to like the new look but simply don't.  I've never had co-worked ping me on previous updates with comments like "give me my phone back" after updating like I've gotten today.  I'm not a fan boy, I didn't like the leather binding and felt crap from before either.  I like clean, darker themes, bolder text, modern keypads, and accessories that really work for the application.

I'd love to see themes like the old smartphone roms we used to burn, really wish IOS had selectable themes for those of us who don't like white could switch on the fly.  I'm loving the new features but just don't like this look.  Feedback is a good thing, you think that IOS maps, boldly white, were great at night?  When virtually all other nav programs had a night mode years before.  Dark themes are so much easier on the eyes when messaging at night.  The new control panel and other sliding functions are killer! I've missed multi-function control panels that WinMobile had years ago, it took IOS to rev 7 to have one.

BTW, Siri, I've been using her a lot lately and she has been almost flawless.  After the upgrade, she is cool, absolutely love the graphic, but she is "temporarily un-available, please try later" about half of the time now, odd.

In my 20 years at HP we engineers tended to pass over the 90% great stuff, and focus on the 10% that we could improve, never settle, unless you like mediocrity.  So no, I'm not angry, I sit on development panels and live my life loving technology, but PUSHING for better stuff like lightning connectors vs 30pin clunky stuff.  You think our dear Mr Jobs used to suck up his opinions?
After starting to read this, I got bored. Scrolled down and find out you worked for HP. That's the problem. Just like Microsoft, you have no taste. Any designer can see the meticulous amount if work that's been put into the new UI and all you can say is that it's too 'bright.' You clearly have no idea about design. Shame.

Kinda frustrating how we have to keep repeating this on here. The OS version number is a lot less important than it used to be.
Kinda frustrating when people tell only half the story and leave out the important details.

Google is moving most things into Google Play Services. This will reduce fragmentation. It also allows Google to manage updates since any changes to Google Play Services can be done via Google regardless of any custom changes carriers and/or OEMs might have made to Android.

It all sounds so rosy.

Until you see the other side. Android users love to talk about how Android is open source (it's not nearly as open as they claim, but that's a topic for another time). Google Play Services is 100% closed and under Google control. Nobody gets the source code and nobody gets to modify it. So as Google moves more and more of Android into Services it becomes less and less open. If they continue this to its logical conclusion then Android is nothing more than the kernel and bare minimum it needs to function as an OS. "Real" Android will become Google Play Services.

This will also make it pointless to Amazon it others to "fork " Android since they now have a bare bones, stripped down OS to work with.

Bottom line, in order for Google to stop fragmentation and improve updates they are becoming a walked garden, just like iOS. It's going to be fun watching the fandroids wake up one day and discover their open source OS is no longer open.

Ha, I agree about HP, we used to joke that if HP marketed sushi, they would call it "cold dead fish", but if you read about Apple and Jobs, you might just see that HP inspired so many to create, even supplied the parts for us to do our own thing, like Woz.  Jobs had tons of respect for the old HP that I lived, and I would argue that "the HP way" of collaboration lives on in Apple.  I have pretty good taste actually, just don't care for glaring white screens in dark environments.  HP has produced some very technically elegant equipment and very forward thinking technologies.  Three years ago I decided that HP was dead to me, dumped my stock and threw in for Apple and do think they have the environment needed to survive.  We do agree on MS, they never had taste, pretty sad overall really.  IOS7 is getting mixed reviews on the looks, it's not just me, but hopefully before I die, I'll aspire to be as enlightened as you seem to be...    na, THAT would be a Shame.

 

Oh, and don't think for a second that I am not marveling at the meticulous attention to detail that is evident all over IOS, it's just not drop dead gorgeous in many areas.

Everything looks so flat in iOS7, reminds me of Windows 8, ewww.

post #95 of 168

I updated my iPad mini to OS7 so I guess I get counted in the adoption rate.  However, I find the new OS difficult to read and view, and the "buttons" have gotten so small, especially in Safari, that it  is difficult to use.  Overall it is too bright and the font is too thin.  I cannot even look at the clock and especially the timer.

 

I will not be updating my iPad nor my iPhone and will try to return to OS6 on my mini.  Hope I can, or I will have to sell it.

 

 

I have fairly good eyes.  Many people do not, and I think the new OS will be very difficult for them.  A friend of ours is one; she honestly felt ill after using the demo iPhone at a shop today for just a few seconds.

 

I had waited for the new OS before buying an iPad for my wife's father, who is in his 80's; she and I both have tried it the new OS on the iPads at a shop and have concluded that it will be impossible for him to use, so for the first time ever we will go look at other tablets tomorrow.  We also had considered getting an iPhone for him, but that is also out of the question now.  DoCoMo has a smart phone aimed at older people, so we are going to check it out this afternoon.

 

You know something is wrong when a major Apple fan site (not AI) runs an article on improving the visibility of text with your new OS just days after it came available, as opposed to raving about how much better it is than the last one.

 

Your = the possessive of you, as in, "Your name is Tom, right?" or "What is your name?"

 

You're = a contraction of YOU + ARE as in, "You are right" --> "You're right."

The iPhone 5s integrated hardware and software design vastly increases the performance gap between iOS and Android to such a level that Google will be forced to abandon Android within the next few years.

I suspect that Android KitKat may be an October surprise, unexpectedly addressing "fragmentation" in a new way. Google threw out a bone a month or so ago with this line:
"It's our goal with Android KitKat to make an amazing Android experience available for everybody."

/Settings/General/Accessibility:
- zoom (3 finger tap zooms screen in/out
- Large Type
- Bolt Text

are 3 that might help. Try it out before reverting back to 6 - while you still can. Otherwise you'll need to take the DFU route, doable, but not easy for some (that doesn't automatically mean you)

Of course it's Googles' goal to get the latest version of Android on everyones' phone.
Of course it's none of the telco's goal to get the latest version of Android on everyones' phone.

Sorry, bit of a 'duh' moment here.

Berg will be pleased that he's still able to downgrade his then.

Mini owners will need to take the other route then. Hopefully they're ex-Android users: shouldn't have any trouble with rooting

As for Yahoo passing Google in web visitors that should be enough answer for regulators who listen too much to MS FUD about a Google monopoly. Seems Yahoo competes just fine.

if scott is like Steve jobs when he was ousted... he got rid of all apple stock (in this case his apple products) except for one... and because that last stock has a. sentimental value he did not upgrade it... if my wild assumptions are correct, is he rocking a gaxy s4 LOL...

all kidding aside i would assume that he upgraded his devices...

Nope, as an engineer who's used handheld devices since their inception, I make and use many types of custom cables.  So far, in 20 years from HP LX till today, none of my devices have been damaged by a cable.  If it did happen, I'd suck it up and simply get it fixed.  I'm not saying it's impossible and there are some cables that I look over and just toss before even trying.

But when apple takes a year to make a long cable, then rapes for it, sheese.  Or how about the stupid 30pin adapters?  The short one won't work with any type of case, the 11" one is just long enough to give you a very clunky adapted cable, say in you car setup.  Why not a 1 or 1.5M cable? so the clunky 30 pin parts can be hidden away?

I'm a stock holder and only want Apple to do well, but they have tons of cash and expertise and still leave these glaring loose ends.  it's not cool at all.

monoprice!!!... and their cables are "made for iPad/iPod" and they are half price!.

There was an interesting article in the Washington Post about the hysterics around iOS 7. The basic theme was people just need to clam down. And they interviewed the guy who is responsible for the Washington Post app and website and he said anytime they update their app/site they get lots of complaints from people mostly because its new/different/confusing and then eventually it dies down as people become more familiar with the changes.
post #107 of 168

Completely agree.  Near white type on a white background is.... well... an interesting approach....  unreadable in most bright lighting situation....  While I have found new features that I like, the ability to actually see, reconize, and read the stuff I would think is important.  But maybe not... we do live in an imagination vitual reality ... make-believe is the new reality .... so perhaps "image what this text says" is the latest thing.......  The well hidden data wheel, the peek-a-boo slides, and the "Guess where I am" hot links are a bit much to deal with.  Mr. Ive and Applie need to back off a notch or two with the white on white theme.

 

I consider the flat, dimentionless, neon crayola stick figure kindergarden icons a separate matter which I could live with if the white on white problem were addressed.

 

Fixing the security flaws of iOS 6....  a good thing... keep that.... 

 

Everything else with iOS 7 might be ok ... if apple and Mr Ive would just ratched down the white on white a couple of notches....

I agree. Another issue I have is the fonts are too thin for me. My 50+ year old eyes can not read these thin fonts as well. Why not give us the ability to make them bold.........

You can change it in settings. Under general > accessibility you can make the font larger or smaller and turn on/off bold text.

Go into 'Accessibility' settings. You can increase default text size, and bold the font, for starters.

I'm not hinting anything. That would presume I knew something factual about the next version to drop hints about. I don't. I am guessing that Google is about to reveal a new way of dealing with fragmentation tho.

Phil, if you take a look there's no longer (as of yesterday) any version for his device except 7.x approved by Apple. I don't think he'll be able to go back to 6.x and restore his mini.

Saw that, thanks, but one can still put it in DFU mode and circumvent the signing issue. In this case, 'Google can be your friend'.

True, it's not impossible to install 6.x, but it sure ain't gonna be easy to "get back to where you once belonged".
