harlekkin, 18 Sep 2013Yeah, that's why iPhone users are SO unhappy with the choice of apps and hardly ever use them.... morewell atleast the average cars out there deliver basics and great features likewise...
whereas our beloved iphone over here is delivering below par, sub-standard features.

i have the newest iPod touch i think its 6g...not sure. and i would like to warn poeple who want ios 7 on the ipod or iphone 4s and lower. it will slow down the device a lot. thee is noticeable lag and frame rate issues with the os. i am running the gold master and i dont think they will improve that with the final build.
- while multitasking if you tap on an open app the app opens but i takes a second or 3 befor you can use the app. doesnt seem significant but after a while it will get annoying.
"As we tested the iOS 7 on an iPhone 5, it's worth noting that the response is a tad slower compared to how the same thing behaved running iOS 6"
If the iphone 5 runs slower with ios 7 than ios 6, how bad is ios 7 going to run on iphone 4/4s ???
All my friends using iPhone are so happy with the news of iOS7, they are eagerly awaiting the rollout for they had almost got bored of the outdated interface and functionality. Android and Windows were marching ahead.
Tom-Helge, 18 Sep 2013Doesn't help when iOS is tiny small compared to Android in any ways.
That's what counts. Do... moreWhile I agree with some of what you say. It cannot be ignored that the appstore has more apps than play store & pretty much every developer brings apps to the appstore first & sometimes exclusively.
So yes develepers are indeed looking at the 19% before the 79%.
& I also saw another post where you talk about Android offering 64 bit support before ios 7.. That makes absolutely no difference as there are no handsets that offer this support. when apple created their 64 bit OS they immediately came up with the hardware to use it.
I just wish Android hardware manufacturers would do the same instead of just adding octo core processors that android doesn't actually support....
We don't need any of the features mentioned under the disadvantage column.

There's also the fact that you are forced to use standard apple apps like Safari and the ever trash Appple maps (Nokia and Goggle Maps are far better). I don't use iOS but I thinks that I can't sync my history from Safari to other devices. You also open Safari directly after clicking a link. I don't get what you mean by security though. In Android, you can add apps for security and you should really be careful in what you download.

iPhone enables people to do more than they could have ever thought possible on a phone. The reason Apple reviews apps is to ensure that there's no dodgy software and nothing illegal that enters the ecosystem. Apple have a lot to lose if they were found guilty of infringing DRM laws...
The only people that want to "tune up" their phones are geeks like you. How many crazy tuned up cars do you see driving around in your city? Oh, was that less than 1% of the population? Well there ya go.
Whoever designed iOS7 needs sacked big time i couldve came up with something better and it would be FREE wouldnt charge apple..lol
By the way Apple fighting against jailbreaking but they keep copying Jailbreak Developers ideas if u have ur iphone jailbroken b4 you no what im talking about..biggest scam in the world iPhones/iPads/iPods new one every 6/9 months no changes what so ever..smh

The average user doesn't need to change every icon on their homescreen, or play for hours customising.
Being "locked in" is more secure as well. That is why many IT professionals shun Android.
I find it funny when Tech Websites give conclusions like ,"it finally boils down to what ecosystem of apps you tied to".
This is a joke.....who wants to be tied to the apple ecosytem???.
iOS and apple devices are like a jail...you get what they think is right for you.
that is why apple fanbuuoys jump with joy everytime they get a new feature stolen from some other OS.
Its like prisoners will get bacon only on Sunday...Obviously they'll be overjoyed.
BuT with OS like android its like you can have bacon, chicken, wine..whatever the your choice.
Sorry but Apple failed to deliver anything exciting.
They have lost what they started.
Okey apple finally took the ideas from android and built them into IO7 - good thing because they will probably not sue google for these anymore.
i hope someone can help me
i have notice in the 4th section "phonebook" the background is all white, is there option to change the color?
Blowntoaster, 18 Sep 2013LMAO...lag on IOS...no!!! they say it would never happen...ever... hahahaha...now you see ... moreios 7 is fast in my ipod touch 4 with 256 mb ram unlike my Xperia with 1 gb Ram
