Or is it removable, changeable somehow? This OS7 is so bland looking.
That strip is the dock where you can park your most important apps. It can't be removed, but it does change colour based on the colouring of your wallpaper.
Thanks, that's what I thought. I'd prefer to park my apps without a background. Even cell phones have that option. Oh well.
Must admit, I have never noticed this. Only to say that I have the green aurora bolearis background. This seems to make my apps stand out better and softer on the eye. Probably a little bit of experimentation with the wallpaper and backgrounds would be beneficial. Besides, it is fun.
It stays pretty much a flat gray bar no matter what wallpaper I use. Geez, how hard would it have been to have an invisible option? Just another thing on my lists of dislikes for OS7. The list that continues to grow by the day.
But grey's not a bad colour is it? Here's my wallpaper, with a somewhat scungy green bar, but it's not too bad, I think
The reason it's got that green tint is because the colour of the bar is an averaging mix of the wallpaper colours. Why don't you try out a predominantly blue or pink, whatever wallpaper? Just to see if you like that bar now? You may even remove that from your list of dislikes, d'you think?
I suppose that bar, of whatever colour, is to differentiate the permanent system apps from your downloaded apps.

That's really sad if you cannot get the colour changed. This is puzzling as my 'aurora bolearis' wallpaper is excellent. Soft on the eye with a light green bar. BTW I am using iPad 3, Wi-Fi only, 32gb with IOS 7.0.2
I disliked the changes at first, principally because it was hard to find instructions which worked for me. It was difficult to understand some of the stuff but asking questions on here as always gave me good explanations and detailed instructions. I know this has not helped you re. the grey bar but I am sure someone on here will direct you. Have faith, I'm glad I have!
I tried the included grassy rolling hills wallpaper and it does change the bar to a light green. I guess the wp's I had been experimenting with were not brightly colored enough to cause a change. Now to get the rid of the bar entirely would be even better. I prefer to have some of my own artwork or other outdoorsy wildlife shots I've taken as my wallpaper. Having that wide bar at he bottom is just plain annoying. Another annoyance to get used to but not that big a deal I suppose. Now if I could get my KB to register my key presses correctly I'd be in hog heaven.
I appreciate your responses.
I get much better keyboard response with auto-correction turned off. Yes, I have to type a little more (capitalize that "I" for example) but that small inconvenience more than offsets the missed characters from a sluggish keyboard.

Thanks for the KB tip. I just tried a nice long email and it seems much more responsive.
