    Watching it live ATM Dennis, its a lot cleaner than the OLD iOS look, and i like it and love the new Multitasking.

    I am sure multitasking is great, but the look to me looks drab, dead. Like I said many especially Android people will love it.

    I am liking the features and the fact that it will work on my iPhone 4. Not sure I like the inter ace. I like the idea of an app looking like the thing it represents (notes looks like a notepad etc).

    I'm not going to pass judgement on it just yet. At least not until I can actually get to play with it. So far it looks very streamlined and the color palette is brighter. They got rid of the felt and wood stuff in game center. Thank god.

    Not sure about the transparency overlays. >_>"

    I am now itching to have this on my devices.

    And this is really beautiful. I wonder what folders look like in iOS 7...

    Looks stunning to me. Exactly the direction I hoped it would go but better. Can't wait to grab the beta but the dev site seems overloaded at the moment
    Not been around these parts for a while. Trying to change that . .

    Looks a bit like Window 7 with the translucent. Modern design in the overall fonts and the almost 'vector' like graphics without losing the original design of iOS 6, which people that use the devices have gotten used to. Like they said, to blend the familiarity with the new without getting people totally lost.

    I'm staring at Win7 right now...when you have a pinned program open, or even the SM open...still a glossy look.

    With that being said, the new look of iOS reminds me of a cross between Metro and Google Chrome OS (the latest version). It looks better than the best of the two though IMO.

    Watch the Android fan boys say that Google should sue Apple for ripping off their UI. >_>"

    Anyways finally got home and started updating my iPhone.

    Anyone else get to play with it yet? XD

    I'm no fanboy on either side, but if you want people to be honest.. that's what you're going to hear. Remember Web OS that got bought out by stupid HP and went belly up? Yeah, back in 2009, they created web cards.. guess what that looks exactly like in iOS 7?


    iOS 7 does look beautiful though *IMO and aside from folders/icons* from every other aspect. And to their credit, for a derivative OS, it's very slick and intuitive.

    Every single feature in iOS 7, I've had forever with my Android phone. The least they could have done is to integrate widgets on the home screens. At least then we could start getting away from icons/folders. Kind of over those.

    I don't have an Android device to compare it to but looking from afar they definitely look a lot more similar now. Linky.

    I'm a lot more happy with Notification center now. It's not some dinky little drop down menu with tiny text anymore. I wish it was a little more customizable. >_<"
