Thanks Apple, what was once really interactive and lovely to look at (and something I truly appreciated about having an iPad, ... I've had one since day day one and updated regularly including other devices) for me now evokes a CHEAP AND NASTY feeling.... The white background on so many Apps simply makes stuff next to impossible to read. Well done Apple in one foul swoop my NZD$1495 tablet is now a piece of junk to use. The worst would be Calendar that I once relied upon but now with all the white, the red and stupid layout it's just CRAP. The second most terrible mess is iBooks with all of my 500+ book collection presented as an uninteresting run of covers on non-interactive indistinguishable surface, juvenile and boring. The none-cover books represent as white boxes on a white background.... Really clever stuff.... Not. The only stupid thing about all of this is that I was effectively forced to update simply because so many of my other high cost Apps were now only iOS7 only.... Some will say that things are better and that these are the compromises for improvement and that all humans reject change but as someone who works in electronics and IT with an graphics art background, this current batch of changes has been very poor and I beg to wonder just where on God's Great Earth the belief that this Look was even near acceptable. The iPad and other Apple products are just computers. Surely the tools (the basic Operating System) needs to offer a much wider range of self selectable options so that the individual is able to set their machine up in a way that they can enjoy and therefore interact with the way it looks. Are you hearing me Apple?
