iOS 7 has just been released to the public and a slew of apps are being updated with redesigns, new features, and support for Apple's revamped operating system. We've detailed some of the most notable iOS 7 app updates below and will continue to add new app updates throughout the day.

Pocket (Free) [Direct Link]

Pocket, the popular read-it-later app, has been updated with a feature that allows the app to automatically sync saved articles in the background, meaning the app will always be up-to-date when it is opened. It also includes a new reading view with edge-to-edge images.

OmniFocus 2 for iPhone ($19.99) [Direct Link]

OmniFocus 2 replaces the original OmniFocus app for the iPhone. The app has an entirely refreshed user interface that takes many stylistic cues from iOS 7, featuring a clean white design and bright accent colors. Navigation has been re-imagined to make it easier to save ideas and track goals. OmniFocus 2 syncs with OmniFocus for iPad and OmniFocus for Mac.

Foursquare (Free) [Direct Link]

The best thing about the iOS 7 redesign is that developers use the occasion to redesign their own apps. Sounds trivial, but I never really thought about it. This might be exciting.

Do we really want every app to be redesigned so they all look the same? Really devs, its ok to create an original look and feel for your your apps/brands.

I totally agree with you. Certainly you need to try and create your own niche.

Having said that I was initially unsure about the look and feel of iOS 7 and having now used it consistently for the past couple of weeks, it's incredible how something can look so dated, so quickly i.e. iOS 6.

I really like the new design and I think that developers to some extent like the new look as well and so are trying to give their customers the same familiarity throughout their iPhone experience.
