What features do you like? Hate?

Personally I really like the control center, multitasking, and iTunes Radio is awesome!

I don't like that the folders got smaller

that the dock is not transparent or that you cant change the color (it chooses for you based off the color of your background)

the colorful new app icons aren't my favorite

What are your thoughts?

I think they should have toned down the fluorescents just a bit with the icons. I love the typeface and abundance of white space throughout. I don't mind the blue links that replace buttons. In fact, I love the removal of the old blue menu bars. I agree with you on Control Center, that's one of my most used of the new features.

The parallax (3-d) look of the home screen still completely rocks. Subtle and awesome.

Overall, I really enjoy iOS 7.

I really like the 3-D home screen look as well! still getting used to the "look" of everything else since I'm not used to it yet lol but it's definitely growing on me.

After using the beta for a month or so and then winding up going back to iOS 6.1.3 I found that while I enjoyed iOS 7, I found the design change from iOS 7 to iOS 6.1.3 to feel backwards. Meaning, I felt like 6.1.3 was built on iOS 7 from a design standpoint and not the other way around. So while I love iOS 7's new features, I actually think in it's current form, it feels a bit inferior to me when compared to iOS 6.1.3. Maybe I just need more time on it.

I've been using the betas since they were released, and although it has gotten better, I still feel like there's too much white. but that's really my only complaint. I've gotten used to it.

Just downloaded and playing with it for an hr or so. So far I like it, it's really clean. If I had to use one word to describe it I'd say (Clean). Now using the Everythingicafe app I'm like what happened. It feels weird already and this format isn't even old at all. Yet it feels foreign. I'll be glad when this app gets a new update. *wink* *wink*

So far I am impressed and happy to say that since I dropped my jailbreak for it. So far my favorite features are Air Drop, notifications center, the parallax effect, and iRadio. I like the overall changes and feel like we need a fresh coat of paint to keep things interesting. Apple can't please everyone, but if they don't make changes they get knocked for being stagnant.

I think it is great. I can't say enough good things about it. If I wasn't so tired I'd list numerous features, but since I am, I'll just mention that the control center and notifications are awesome.

I don't like the dock either, but in order to use CC it needs to be this big.

Edit: or maybe not.

I am really enjoying it and I would not even think of going back to 6.x. I like the fact that the folder limitation seems to be lifted. I can now have limitless APPs in one folder even though they page over after 9 APPS. One thing I am annoyed about is that AIRDROP will not work with my iPad 3. I have no idea why its not included.

Has anyone worked out how to close unused apps? I double click and they appear as they Always have but touching them doesn't make them wiggle to allow you to close them

Thank you! I've yet to find an iOS 7 guide that's good. The one I downloaded is full of old info not relevant to ios7

Love the Control center. The folders and fonts are way too small. Can't resize a photo to use as wallpaper on my home screen. Any help with resizing (squeezing it with two fingers doesn't work like before upgrading to 7)?
