What kind of twattery is this??!

BrokenSunglasses Thu 19-Sep-13 17:59:28

From what I've seen so far, YANBU!

I let DH download it before I did, and I don't think I'll bother!

Hate it - installed it this morning because I woke up to a FB feed of people raving about how great it was. That'll learn me... So glad it's not just me that's growling about it smile

I love it but then I like a change every now and then wink

I'm not a techy type but I'm still getting over Windows 8. angry

ElleMcFearsome Thu 19-Sep-13 18:02:10

Windows 8 = many times worse than iOs7. Muriel has just provided me with the necessary perspective!

I quite like it.

It's drained the battery on my iPhone within such a short space of time. Fucking hell, why did I bother!?

I'm definitely not downloading it to my iPad. It looks so cheap and nasty. Siri sounds like a Cyberman and the new text tones are complete shit! And why the fuck would I want a "torch"?

FUCK YOU APPLE. FUCK. YOU.

I rather like it too.
grin

It does seemed to have drained my battery quickly I must admit.

IAmADonkeyOnTheEdge Thu 19-Sep-13 18:09:07

I wish I had seen this before the eternal long lasting download began ...... TIme remaining 6 minutes .... Is a lie !

McNewPants2013 Thu 19-Sep-13 18:10:06

i like it.

The calendar is also horrible sad.

Tee2072 Thu 19-Sep-13 18:10:50

I can't decide how I feel about it...

Dobbiesmum Thu 19-Sep-13 18:11:17

I've just downloaded it but so far I'm not that impressed..

I quite like. I can get to my music quickly and skip between apps.

I never use the inbuilt ringtones. I have a folder of weird and wonderful ones like Eddie Izzard, Loki, Tony Stark, Dr Who, minions etc.

I haven't noticed my battery draining quick but I do switch off anything I don't need.
I'm a little pissed that my iMessage and Facetime won't activate but I barely use them so I can live with that little bug!
I love the new passcode lock screen. No more hitting the wrong button in a rush for me!!

I definitely prefer the old calendar and the icons don't seem as 'swish' somehow. I like the new options when you swipe up though.

GobbySadcase Thu 19-Sep-13 18:18:44

YANBU.
Graphics dreadful. Really 'dumbed down '

OberonTheHopeful Thu 19-Sep-13 18:20:53

I haven't yet upgraded but have read that one way to reduce battery drain is to turn off background app syncing (a new feature in iOS 7).

reggiebean Thu 19-Sep-13 18:21:16

YABU. I love, love, love it!

It looks like a Fisherprice My First Mobile. Functionally, I couldn't care less one way or another, but I would prefer my phone to look like it belongs to an adult.

Tee2072 Thu 19-Sep-13 18:29:00

It looks like Android, actually. Apple's going to hate that!

Remotecontrolduck Thu 19-Sep-13 18:29:34

Hate it. I really liked the sound of limitless folders and some of the other features too.

The calendar is particularly awful, photos are also a bit weird. Just everything in general looks awful.

I'm so disappointed!

I like it. It's taken me a week to get used to it but it's really grown on me. Battery did seem to drain really quickly for the first couple of days but it's settled down now and lasts as long as it did before.

And the torch was my most used app ever. I'm delighted they've finally added one in!

Oh, and the app synching is bloody marvellous. I hate updating apps.
