    Your thread title dictates you're not intelligent enough to make worthwhile use of a beta. Please don't install any other beta software in the future.
    Was that really necessary?
    Perhaps not, but then, honestly, neither was the original post that started this thread. By definition, a beta release is NOT ready for general consumption by the masses. It’s one of those things that need not be said, but all to often, is said anyway.

    I agree with you that a lot of these threads don't need to exist, but at no point did the guy get all huffy on it not working, or indicate that he didn't grasp the concept of beta software. I tried it, liked it, and rapidly removed it myself. I don't think it warranted use of the flame deployment button. Just my two cents though. Looks like one of the mods caught it to and issued warning, so I consider it handled .

    " Treat members with respect", I haven't lately seen that in the forum and it's very unfortunate, I'd like this rule to apply to EVERY single member here, I repeat, EVERY single member.

    Agree, perhaps not, regardless of the original post, replies like that one are uncalled for..

    In simple terms... And let's move on.

    Play Nice, Be Helpful, and have Respect!

    This means keep the language clean, keep your posts polite, and don’t get into arguments over dumb things. If somebody responds to a thread you posted in poor fashion, ignore it, and the moderation team will quickly clean it up (you can always message or email a moderator at any time if you observe anything that is in poor taste/against the rules). Think back to what your parentals and teachers used to lecture - if you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything at all.

    Always remember that we are all unique and at different levels here - some of us are experienced Apple users and forum junkies, while others are just starting out. If you’re on the experienced side, have patience for those just joining in on the fun and be helpful. With a little patience and a little help they won’t be newbies for long. Also remember that it is our differences that keeps this place interesting. If everyone was from the same place and at the same experience level it would be boring. This is a worldwide community united by a common interests..

    I don't understand why some of you have a problem with this thread.

    It's beta software. He understood that.
    He tried it, he liked it, but its not yet sufficient to be used as his daily driver.

    At the end, he asks what others think of iOS 7.
    He's initiating a discussion on a discussion forum.

    It's not as if he's one of those clueless people who post:
    "Duuuuuuhhhh, iOS 7 don't work. Apple is stoopid".
    I have a problem with it because they have been showing up numerous times. Multiple threads about how iOS 7 beta is buggy pop up all day. I think there should just be a dedicated thread for it.

    It's very subtle too, I didn't notice it right away.

    It being a beta, I'm not surprised things don't work. Seeing as for me, because I'm not a dev, it'd be fun to install and mess around with, but not necessary and I honestly have no reason to install it and, while it's a small risk, risk breaking something and bricking my device. I'll wait until it's officially released.

    I would like to go back to iPhone, so I started reading reviews and comments about iOS 7. One issue that has repeatedly been brought up is about the readability of the text. Any views on this from testers on here?

    This is a copy and paste of one site's comments:

    "The last thing I want my phone reminding me of every day is that I am growing older. It's a horrible font choice exacerbated by the color schemes. Let's show the font in white on a light blue background. How about in yellow on a white background.

    Seriously, they took all this stuff that was easy to read, stuff you didn't have to think about, and put in hard-to-read text on a feature-less white screen. Even the navigation icons look like bad text from an early eighties OS. But at least you could read those."

    I'm 54 years old, wear bifocals, and am color confused (not color blind, but close). I'm having no problems with the new combination of font and color. It's very easy on my old eyes.
