    I like that they've expanded the back swipe gesture from Mail to other apps as well.
    I don't like that it's inconsistent in some apps though.
    Not necessarily an iOS7 problem per se, but I wish they would have tighter guidelines for developers using the new gesture.

    The way it should work (and the way it does in most Apple apps) is that you swipe from left to right, and the page "sticks" to your finger, so you can flick it, pull it slowly, etc.
    However, I find that many apps that implement this merely have the page flick itself automatically as soon as you perform the gesture. You don't have a chance to pull back, view both screens at the same time, etc.

    I noticed that as well. But I use third party apps because of syncing issues. I would rather use the stock Safari web browser.
    But none of my bookmarks sync to my PC. So I use Chrome, but I have noticed that It defaults back to Safari.
    I have also noticed that IOS is more strict towards using 3rd party apps. But to an extent they are all like that.

    My biggest issue is with the landscape view in the music player. I have to turn auto screen rotation off and see the artist and album cover sideways. I would really like them to provide a usable landscape view.

    I like to give credit where credit is due.
    I uninstalled and reinstalled the iCloud control panel.
    Once I did that, my bookmarks from my PC merged with Safari.
    I will add one dislike though. The stock calendar, all the more reason why I use Fantastical.

    Lag recently.

    Reboots.

    Battery life.

    In all honesty it seem more like my blackberry days when things locked up and I had to reboot or it rebooted it self.

    I remember on iOS 6 it would run solid for months with out issues.

    You can't turn off vibrate on the alarm and have it on somewhere else.
    You can't turn off the dial tone (to dial a Number) unless the phone is on vibrate.
    The keyboard needs to be developed like the swift key app for Android.

    I hate notification center. I didn't like it in iOS 6 either but I think it has become worse in iOS 7. Three screens that are somewhat confusing in purpose. One of them being almost worthless(missed). At least in iOS 6, the weather widget was useful and glanceable. Now it's text with inconsistent info. Sometimes you see the temperature, sometimes you don't. I'm scared they are doubling down on the clumsy execution(non collapsible, small x, non actionable) instead of making into something truly great and functionable.

    Notifications also continue to be a problem on iOS. It's always been bad but it's time for them to seriously evaluate the logic behind making them them the most intrusive and ineffective on any platform.

    Hate how the volume screen pops up in the middle of your screen when watching a video or playing a game effectively blocking what you are seeing.

    Constant reboots especially in safari.

    The inability to choose app options in control center.

    Music player album view has ruined playing music for me. Hate having to scroll through all my songs to get what I want. Huge screw up on Apple's part. It makes absolutely no sense from the company that created the iPod. I have been forced to use a third party app that comes with its own issues but at least I can easily find the album and song I want.

    Sorry for the long post.

    The inability to go to "settings" directly from control center.

    The inability to choose what you want to see in control center. I'm really glad it's there, but I'd like to be able to customize it.

    I don't think that ios 7 is ugly per se, but it's incongruous. Here we have a finely crafted, minimalist metal and glass object d'art that is the iPhone 5s, furnished in monotone colors, but when you turn it on, BAM! You get hit with the full spectrum of neon colors and flashy effects. Its like buying a elegant bvlgari (or substitute your fancy watch here) timepiece, then you look at the face and the background is neon pink, the hour hand is lime green, and the minute hand is bright orange. Oh and it uses flashing lights that pulse every second.

    Ios 7 = perfectly matched for iPhone 5c. Not so much for the 5s.

    I dislike the way iOS 7 looks, but I can get used to that. It will be harder for me to get used to all the added friction to the interface. Can't use the Home button to get to Spotlight search more quickly from the first Home screen. Home gesture brings you back to an open folder instead of back to the Home screen. Folders display fewer apps so it's harder to find the one you're looking for, often requiring more swipes and scrolling. It's not clear to me what impact iOS 7 has on battery life but this was not exactly a strong point on my iPhone to begin with.

    As far as I can tell, pretty much all the changes were made for the sake of change, rather than for improvements in usability.

    The appearance if it is ugly. The icons look dull and plain. The slide to power off and such look so cheap! These I can get used to but still don't like it.
    The wifi thing is driving me crazy! It doesn't always stay connected. I have to go into setting and refresh it till it finds the signal. Grrrrr!!
    It'd be nice to have darker colors. I love white but it's just too damn bright and my brightness is at 0.
    The lag is becoming irritating.
    Crashing is as bad as lagging.
    I still have a few second delay on the phone app to dial a number. Hopefully I never have to call 9-1-1 cause a few second delay and I could be dead...
    And the battery life. I use kik a lot and it KILLLLLS my battery but still just doesn't seem to last...

    I love everything about iOS 7 I just wish they could add a few more features into the software. A way to use the touch iD more than just a fingerprint sensor, a darker theme with the phone. Or actually an option to choose many different themes. Maybe some camera options like the way the S4 has. It's a great software and way better than the iOS 6 but adding just a few things would make it better.

    Parallax motion. The new app switcher; if you don't swipe up at pretty much a 90 degree angle it doesn't flick away the app. Also most of the time if you try to flick away more than one at a time only one of them goes away; the preview goes but the icon remains and you have to flick up again. Finally, where is this full multitasking? Every app but tweetbot still appears to multi-task the same as iOS 6 and prior.

    I also think it's too bright and white. The new dark theme for tweetbot3 is epic. I have just about every app that has the option in dark theme mode.

    That's what I did. I have been using it for the last couple weeks and I love it. It is.......fantastic.
    I just wish it had a live date like the stock app instead of a badge.

    I agree, the date badge is the only thing I don't like about it. Other than that, it is a great app. 😊

    Yep, that's the only reason I keep the stock calendar app in the top right corner. I get the feeling that Fantastical would have done it if it were possible. I've only ever seen 3rd party apps use the badge, so I'm assuming it's something that is limited to stock apps. If that's true, then that's another thing that bothers me about iOS 7.

    Too much white! It gets kind of annoying and straining to the eye after some use.
    Another thing that bothers me is that I can't get to choose the color(s) of my folders. Some of the wallpapers that I like, I can't use since the resulting folder color isn't to my liking.
    Last, is the inability to customize the Control Center. Don't really use Calculator & Timer that much.
