New iOS 7 Motion features are pretty sweet, but some are getting sick or just don't plain want use that motion...

You can reduce screen motion in iOS 7. iOS 7 uses a parallax effect to create the perception of depth on your Home screen and elsewhere.

To reduce the effect, you can turn on Reduce Motion in Settings > General > Accessibility.

When you turn on Reduce Motion, Home screen transitions will fade instead of zoom.
