Apple's iOS 7.1 brings animation updates, UI tweaks for Phone, calendar, and more - Page 3

Great article thanks!

They went sort of crazy on the circle theme in iOS 7.1. Now it even extends to Spotlight. I really don't care for it. I used to think rounded corners were ok but now I just prefer rectangles like the new Apple home page. They used to have rounded rectangles on the bottom row but now just straight rectangles which looks great. The circles in iOS seems inconsistent with the new Apple design language. Off topic but, whatever are they going to do with that web menu bar?

Haughty comments about who are the arbiters of design and functionality are laughable. Your ilk will be the death of Apple if you get your way, same as those who still want a headless Mac.

 

This man should get "extra points" for the Spiro Agnew quote.  What a classic. :)

I'm not seeing that on my iPhone.  It looks like the text is centered in the rectangular part of the "button" and then the arrow is tacked onto the left side.  Looks like the correct choice to me.

I don't like floating dainty buttons.

I feel it adds a better sense to the menu buttons. Especially when you're in a moving environment or if your outside. Your eye can quickly gravitate to the buttons.

Also there's a nice little transparent look to them.

I agree that it is much better to have buttons, but this is a shoddy implementation. Using the same gray background for all the buttons ignoring its context makes them impossible to read on applications that use dark text. They could've easily used an outline in the same color as the text in the button so it fits its context, but they actively decided not to do so. Why? I do not understand, it looks careless, lazy and unprofessional. Whoever is the design director for iOS 7 is not doing a great job, or is not a good UI designer.

Security vs convenience, a quandary, your choice.

At least it stopped the whiners going on endlessly about how "stale" iOS was and that, my friend was the best effect of all.

I like all the changes so far. I'd add an optional 'to burst or not to burst' mode for the camera.

She feels that her affection is being challenged. It’s a subconscious way of asserting her dominance. Don’t hold it against her.

Try switching to a male Siri voice...
...that won't make her feel like you're talking to another woman 1wink.gif

Go back to all the "stale" shit again?

Where did you get that picture on your lock screen where you were showing the "slide to unlock" tweak? I really like it

This update really disappointed me. I'm a huge fan of iOS but the irreversible changes made in 7.1 really let me down. The now bold keyboard is an eyesore. I wish there was an accessibility option to where you can edit the don't and/or boldness and color of the keyboard. The changes to the call screens are very drastic. I was used to hitting anywhere on the bottom portion of the screen to end a call. But now I have to place my finger on the center of that same bottom portion. Very annoying. Plus the super tiny contact photo is a downgrade. Apple really did wrong in this update. I hope changes come in the updates to come.

I agree with you on the contact pics thing, though I don't really care too much about it.

 

But do people really look that closely at the keyboard?  Honestly, I didn't even notice the bold OR the all-caps (which have been there for HOW MANY versions?) until they were pointed out on message boards.
