    I like the new look and welcome the improvements, but still find many of the icons ugly.
    What is disturbing is their tonal balance.

    Particular ugly ones are Safari, Camera and Settings....
    Let's hope they tweak them before release, but I'm not too optimistic.

    I welcome the new look, features, and functionality Apple has implemented.

    Well needed and about time IMO. I actually like the new icons. I usually jailbroke my iPhone and iPad, just so I could change the theme to something "flat" like this.

    I can honestly say, with the call blocking features (for iPhone), control center, better multitasking, panorama effects, plus those damn icons ;), ill no longer jailbreak my iDevices. Unless the jailbreak community spits out something that is just a must have *cough*. :rolleyes:

    There is a battery drain issue that should be addressed in the next beta release.

    Yep.

    It'll keep getting increasingly better as the betas roll out. :)

    I like this look too, it reminds me of the MIUI rom that I always flashed on my android devices. This was the only reason I rooted my android devices.

    This is what you see when you swipe up from any screen you're on.

    image-1199525692.jpg here are the media player controls as well as some if the more important features from settings, like Airplane mode, do not disturb, etc. If you notice, there's now a built in flashlight app, no need to download a separate app.

    So, does double-clicking the home button do anything on iOS 7? If they moved the volume slider and multitasking, then there is no longer a reason to have anything under the home button double-click.

    i'm not sure yet about the "flat" look of the icons,i think though that after a while you just forget what things looked like before and it becomes familiar.

    Yes, it still brings up the Multi tasking bar, with the screen associated with the icon directly above it when the icon is at centre screen. Swipe the screens from right or left and tap on the one you want. The screen opens up the app, just where you left off. image-3949331875.jpg
