    i like iTunes Radio!
    I'm glad to hear this. I didn't want to pay for something extra like spotify or pandora when i already had match, so knowing the iradio is awesome makes me happy.

    I'm enjoying it so far. Not sure yet on it creating stations and suggesting music like Pandora does. But I'm definitely thinking of dropping my paid Pandora One subscription. I do pay for iTunes Match so I don't get the ads (same reason k pay for Pandora now).

    This is good news (plus the seeming lack of limits on the skips). Thanks.

    The limit is supposed to be 6 skips per hour per station even for Match users. I haven't been denied a skip yet but I also haven't counted them. I don't want to skip too much since I'm trying to "train" my stations.

    One thing I did notice is that it's not always picking up a song that I last easy have in my library and instead is showing me the purchase button. But for those that it does recognize, it shows a button to download the song to your device.

    Why jealous? Yes we get to play with the new OS, but there are lots of annoying bugs to deal with as well there's a reason it's called a beta.

    I've used a beta product before, it was called a PlayBook lol.

    I'm just a tech geek at heart. More curious about how these changes to the OS affect or change the iOS experience we've been use to all these years. I like playing with shiny new things

    I do like it.

    But I hope they tone down the colors a little or make the icons a little less cartoony. The app icons also seem kind of random some look strange together IMO. Can't put my finger on it. Just doesn't look as sharp, slick, or high class to me. The only description I keep arriving at is it looks a little bit too much like a toy just looking at the home screen alone.

    For those of you wondering about black iphones, there is a pic on the CB site where Bla1ze put ios7 on his black iphone with a dark wallpaper, and somehow the home screen icons don't look quite as bad; unless I'm just starting to get used to seeing them.

    I'm not sure how much of it is on the homescreen, but with some of the transparency elements, changing your wallpaper from light to dark to multi coloured should make a noticeable difference in appearance.

    I have a plain black background. Here is a portion of my home screen (chopped down to make sure I only included icons already shown by Apple in their website, I don't want to run afoul of the NDA).

    You mean you have icons for things that others don't? That's cool!

    When BB10 was coming out there was all this secrecy about showing screen icons because there was so much uncertainty about what would/would not be on it . . but I can't imagine what isn't already on ios to be secretive about . . guess we'll find out later ;-)

    BTW - thanks for the screenshot, I think it's starting to grow on me . . maybe . . kinda . . sorta . . .

    No I don't think I have extra icons or anything. Just being extra careful mainly.

    Does anybody have a guess why there were no pics/demos with a black iphone either in the keynote or on the website? I mean, I'm not trying to sound kooky or suggest some kind of conspiracy or anything, I guess I just noticed and wondered why . . .

    Because someone decided that the aesthetics of the presentation and website looked better with the white one. Doesn't mean a thing about how the black one looks with the new OS.

    The folks who make the black helicopters use up all the black?

    I have no idea why the demos all were done with white phones... just one of those things that make you go "huh?"

    well, I suppose since they ran out of green felt and leather I suppose that makes sense ;-)

    That does look significantly better on the black background. Maybe only showing it with white iPhones with the animated backgrounds isn't the best. I hope the icons get some revisions and tightening up. Will they really ship it with a photos icon that looks like the NBC peacock?

    I think I feel about the same as Rene in respect to iOS 7 at this point. I will reserve final judgement until it is on my iPhone.

    I'm guessing the 5S will have themes for it and perhaps more than two colors. The same guy who designs the hardware is behind the iOS design so I'm sure he's pretty aware of all this as well as hearing feedback. Part of previewing iOS is being careful not to give away anything regarding the upcoming hardware.

    I think iOS 7 is a step in the right direction as far as functionality is concerned. The addition of the Control Center is cool, and I applaud Apple for taking a chance on what seems to be a divisive issue concerning some visual elements of the updated UI. That being said, I also think Apple has enough time before release to massage the interface and listen to some suggestions for potential improvement. Please keep things in perspective. It is only the first beta release. I am looking forward to seeing the final release on my iPad this fall.

    As I've stated in another thread, iOS 7 is a winner - period, and I can't wait for it to be released this coming fall...
    Watched soldier knows best's video on YouTube and I'm super amped for iOS 7. It's definitely got a lot of Android'esque features that I think will be welcomed by those who love the stability of Apple and iOS but want it to have a few more bells and whistles.
