    Any iOS7 Testers can confirm if you can download apps in the App Store? Or downloaded apps in the appstore will work fine in iOS7? Like Facebook, Twitter, Linked In, Google Apps? I hope you can tell us. Thank you so much.
    Yes you can download apps from the App Store. Some of the apps work fine, others don’t. The issue is whether or not iOS 7 has modified any API calls or changed things up internally that affects the way the apps do things/access internals/interact with the OS. Since Apple is currently rejecting apps that use the new APIs or address iOS 7 - specific access, the app woes will be with us for a while. But so far, none of my "go to" apps appear to be affected. YMMV.

    I use Tweetbot for twitter... not tried the official twitter app. I have used the Facebook app without incident.

    I consider Tweetbot, Tapatalk, Instagram, my bank app, ESPN ScoreCenter, PocketBible, Screens, BestBuy, Fidelity, 1Password, Yahoo Weather and Fantastical my "go to" apps... no issues with any of them... though some seem to be having issues with Instagram.

    I tried Skype this morning. The IM feature crashes the app. I didn't try video calling because of this.

    200 apps including all the basics (Facebook, twitter, vine, Instagram, CNN, YouTube, Starbucks, 1password, google search, amazon, groupon, yelp, google maps, audible, Dropbox, docs2go, quicken, runkeeper, everytrail, map my hike, etc.) everything works fine.

    Only problem apps so far have been with messaging Skype, loading eBay, loading videosafe2, picstich loading pics and Netflix searching.

    Instagram acts weird. If you scroll up the pictures that you already seen turn to gray squares. You have to scroll completely past them then scroll back down to see them again. Not anything major though.

    Im not having any problems with any of those.

    The emoticons are missing from text messaging. Its not really a big deal, but just one of the things i noticed. iMessage works great. They added an option where the people your texting with can see if youve read their message. It can be toggled on or off

    I have several apps that aren't working. That is a bit frustrating. This is the first time i have used an iPhone beta so I wasn't sure what to expect.

    The important functions are working great. I'm noticing the battery drains a lot faster!. I've gone through all the settings and nothing is set differently then I had with 6.1.2. Hopefully that's a beta issue and it will be resolved. The battery also takes longer to charge. A lot longer.

    Emoji (emoticons) need to be enabled in keyboard settings as in iOS 6.

    Read receipts has been there since iMessage was introduced.

    I tried searching for this with no avail and I apologize if this has already been covered and I missed it, but has anyone else noticed double notifications from 3rd party apps? Also when trying to clear said notifications from the notifications center it appears again and won't go away until you've cleared it a second time.

    I am also getting the double notifications bug in mailbox. This happened after I downgraded to 6.1.3 from the beta. Sometimes, when emails come in, the notification appears twice on the lock screen or home screen, and my phone keeps dinging like crazy (it can go on like 8 times for 3-4 incoming mail). Resetting my phone seems to decrease the frequency of the bug occurring.

    I have contacted the mailbox team, but as it is likely a IOS7 bug, there isn't really anything they can do until IOS7 is officially released. Only then can they start troubleshooting to see where the issue is and start preparing a patch.

    Well I downgraded back to ios 6. While I am very impressed with ios 7 look and features it's just very unstable right now. I mean it was stuck at the lock screen and wouldn't turn off just froze. I don't even see how this would even benefit developers between the disappearing keyboard frozen screens I would say this is closer to alpha and that was a fresh install. Ill try again when beta 2 is released.

    So weird how this beta is differing so much for each person cause I have had very little issues. Only thing is my phone resprings after I update apps.

    I agree, you would think that the problems would be universal but no dice. I guess I am one of the lucky ones as I get fantastic battery life and all my daily driver apps works fine, I will be excited to see what beta 2 fixes as I think this beta is relatively stable compared to beta 1s of the past.

    I think Apple would have liked the problems to be universal as well.

    Anyway, I'm like you in that I can get a solid 5-6 hours of heavy usage on cellular and plenty more when connected to WiFi. Only real issue I'm having is my pics not uploading to Photo Stream and an inability to get to collections in the Photos app. It crashes when I attempt to go back.

    Other than that I'm enjoying the crap out of iOS 7.

    Not going to look back at all these posts to see if this was mentioned but has anybody noticed that the touchscreen sensitivity is not the greatest? Especially when swiping through you pages of apps.

    I have noticed that I get a few touches that aren't touches, almost like the hover feature on the S4. Not all the time, but sometimes it seems TOO sensitive.

    I haven't really had any issues with the screen sensitivity, but I noticed the way the interface behaves ( opening and closing apps and folders) is kind of weird and it feels nice but when doing stuff very quickly It kind of slows me down, it just doesn't feel as responsive and fluid as ios6.
    I hope I'm wrong but this doesn't seem to be a bug or a beta issue but the way Apple designed the user interface.
