Alright! Another app I can use as a flashlight.
I wish developers would be just a touch more creative in matching the feel of iOS 7 without making their app look like all the other updated ones. Zzzzzz.

I personally don't hate iOS 7 at all. In fact like it a lot more than 6. I just don't think every developer has to drink the white Koolaid to make their apps tie into the look.

Everything is white!! God please end this stark white minimalism... Toooooo bright on the eyes. I hope iOS 8 fixes this. Jony Ives, please stick to hardware design, you suck at interface design!

Beautiful how? Looks cheap and outdated. ...by decades.

"Most popular iOS ever designed"

Show your work.

In case you haven't been paying attention, there's an unprecedented amount of controversy over the amount of people incredibly unhappy about getting stuck with the awful aesthetics of this OS.

I'm starting to get tired of all the iOS love. Wake up people! They removed the soul of the OS! It now has almost no color, and no character. I agree that the new features are great, but there is no way you'll ever convince me that you truly prefer the eyesore that is iOS 7 over its predecessor. Does it look more "modern"? Of course it does. Why? Because iOS 6's interface was old. Plain and simple. That is all modern means. It in no way makes anything better than anything else. I'll take the "old" but pleasant-on-the-eyes interface any day.

Turn your brightness down and enjoy both good contrast AND good battery life, something that iOS 7 designs make possible. Ive has designed the most popular iOS ever created, what have you designed?

(emphasis added)

"You're not allowed to complain about a movie unless you have directed a better one." is the sentiment I am getting from your post. Please stop that. iOS 7 is created for consumers. Please allow those consumers to have an opinion.


I got to admit, I'm really starting to enjoy the iOS 7 hate. The thought of people sitting at home in their basements pulling their hair out, hollering threats about switching to Android, or trying to find ways to reinstall iOS 6 because of a few cosmetic changes makes me laugh. Does that make me a bad person?

I got to admit, I'm really starting to enjoy hating iOS 7. You are a bad person, and I hate you too. :D

If you still knowingly run ios 6 then you are against change. Just face up to it. The brightness on your device can be adjusted. It really isn't hard thanks to iOS 7's new control centre.

Wow, this is a pathetic comment.
"You're against change" if you don't want to overwrite the system you love with a system you loathe…
Of course.
