Just an update, all. I am getting there with the new IOS thanks mainly to the support and advice on here together with Apple service. Faith is gradually being restored!
And, I haven't really noticed the ads. Guess I am so used to hearing ads on a regular radio station that I don't hear them here, either. Also, and it may be just me, but they seem to be softer than the music. But shhhhh, don't tell Apple's advertisers I said that!
But, I do like the music offered. One of my favorite parts of this iOS 7 (and, having it work on my Windows PC and my AppleTV is a definite bonus!).
Always remember, we are here to lend a hand, or to just offer a sympathetic ear.
Anyone else notice how laggy iOS 7 is?
I did some speed tests with our 2nd iPad and the new iOS was slower in many of the tests, scrolling in safari was definately more jerky, and parts of the OS were really bad such as the change wallpaper option, or using the camera. Also the big no no for me was the fact the colours or should that be lack of colours made things harder to read, turning on bold text and enabling contrast seemed to help as did choosing a dark background, its always worth trying a reset too after a firmware install but TBH it was still poor compared to v6.1.3.
Sadly I wont be upgrading again until it's all been sorted out, infact I'm happy to leave it on 6.1.3 indefinately if need be, but hopefully Apple will sort out the issues, and sack the colour blind guy and get some colour back into the operating system again, or give us some options to set personal colours. Most people know that trying to see white text on a white background is not very readable, but someone needs to tell Apple.
I'm amazed that beta testers never voiced these concerns back to Apple during the testing stages, as they are so blatently obvious, my home screen looked absolutely rubbish, icons look far worse, with just a plain grey bar across the bottom, it may look okay on phones, but it's a step backwards on iPads IMO...looks wise anyway.

I am now adjusting to life post 6.1.3 and things have improved somewhat. I still feel that I have been a Beta tester as the new IOS was awkward to get to grips with initially, so many negatives. Your point re. Beta testers is valid indeed! Whoever they were they either did a very poor job or Apple tended to ignore their findings for whatever reason, I really don't know. What I do know is that some of the glitches are glaringly obvious and wonder how they could have been missed at all. Back to the testers for that one.
All in all, things are becoming better but after this experience, I ask myself what is the point of having Beta testers if we, on this forum, have to identify new IOS issues and present solutions?
If anyone on here was a Beta tester for this IOS please give us some idea what could have happened.

Apple did address some issues, like the bold text option in accessibility. But they mostly just stuck to their guns.
Beta testers also thought ios 7 wasn't ready for the iPad and we would not see it on the iPad until the new iPads are released.
