    Default What don't you like about iOS 7?

    Now that iOS 7 has been out for a while, and we've read many threads about what you like and dislike about it, I wanted to focus SOLELY on what you dislike about iOS 7. I'll start:

    1. I don't like the fact that it still does not allow me to quickly scroll to the bottom of the screen in the manner it allows me to quickly go to the top.
    2. I don't like the fact that it still does not have a select-all and delete-all in all areas.
    3. I don't like the fact that it took away the tap to tweet function.

    Alright, what about you?

    I don't like that they took away "tap to tweet" and "tap to post" from notification center plus how they changed how weather is shown in notification center and the location services requirement for weather in notification center to even be shown.

    I agree with you two I actually found the "tap to post" in notification center rather useful. The Facebook app it's self is beyond slow trying to launch the app much less posting anything. I also miss the way weather was displayed in Notification Center. I've always found it frustrating how there was never a way to scroll to the bottom of the page the same as it is to get to the top.

    To be honest. I am not a fan of the look of the icons.
    The layout. And the fact you cannot hide apps you're not using unless you drag them into a folder. To me, it looks cluttered.

    1. The wallpaper zoom BS. I understand why it is the way it is, but I don't like it.

    2. How the keyboard is white in some apps and not others.

    3. That I can't turn off parallax without turning off zoom.

    That's all I can think of for now. Will post if I think of more.

    I also miss those buttons. So convenient. Have you tried the drafts app? It's the best replacement for that feature with a bunch of other options. I love it.

    I don't like more than a few of the new icons, but I have gotten used to them. I also don't like the way the calendar app is now. I liked the old one much better.

    Also that the home button takes you to an open folder and not home. Hate that. It's a home button. Not a back button.

    Default Re: What don't you like about iOS 7?

    Although I have only used 7 on my iPad Mini (I refuse to update my 4s), I extremely dislike that 7 has slowed it down tremendously. App switching is slower then ever, and some apps even crash or take about 3 minutes before they are usable. I have a lot of games on there for my 4 year old, but teaching him to have patience is impossible while using the Mini.

    No Weather images, icons, colors, and attempt at simplicity bother me as well.

    I still dig 6 and will use it until some mentioned changes are made.

    Ugh yeah I don't like the new calendar app either. Wish they would learn something from Fantastical.

    Couldn't agree more. I use Cal by Any.do and haven't looked back. And the icons, ugh, they're so inconsistent with one another. Some are just plain ugly. I honestly don't understand the design language -- if there even is one -- with the icons.

    Another thing about iOS 7 is not being able to use third party apps as default apps. If I could, I'd love for anything that would normally open up Mail, would open up Gmail. Heck, maybe if I hold down the home button, it could open up the Google Search app over Siri. Or maybe getting a choice to use Google over Bing. Little things like this could make things so much better for me.

    I had the same issue with my 4s after upgrading to iOS 7. Finally I did an erase all content and settings and now it runs much much smoother. I say give it a try. It is definitely worth it.

    To use google over bing through Siri say "Google..." rather than "Search..."

    I don't like that we live in the "post" PC era, yet I still need a PC to manage my Nano. Let iPads manage iPods. Please.

    While I am not a big user of Google, it would be nice to change default apps.

    I understand the lack of a user access able file system, but let third party apps like SkyDrive, Dropbox, Goodreader, ect BT files from other devices.

    I'm not too happy about all of Apples applications that have been updated to iOS 7 no longer being compatible with older versions on devices that cannot update. By that I mean Pages, Numbers, etc. I can no longer use those apps because both my iPad and MacBook are too old to get the most recent versions.
