Updated to iOS 7 just now…

Hmmm. Just updated to iOS 7. Of course it will take a bit to get used to the “flatter” graphics, moving away from the more object-like look of the iOS 6 design.
Otherwise, a little early to tell the advantages. I kind of wish it didn’t look so much like Windows 8 though….

Noticed: the app icons “float” above the background picture and respond to the tilt sensor.
The WordPress app is different.

You can double-click the Home button to get the recent apps. Swiping between apps leaves a view of the app window (screenshot) so you can see what was going on.


The Maps app might be different – the trees in 3D view are still blocky and weird, but maybe not quite as bad?

Safari looks very different, but haven’t checked its functionality enough to spot anything. I don’t like the change that put bookmarks to the right of the address box instead of to the left, though.

Oh-oh. It broke Overdrive, the app I use to take out e-books from the library. Fortunately all it takes is a reinstall of the app to re-authorize….from the Overdrive blog.
