Tumblr hosted site focuses on flaws in iOS 7
A website hosted on Tumblr called UX Critique is basically made up of images showing flaws with iOS 7. Most of these are minor details like the use of a font that is too small or a shading that doesn't produce enough contrast. In other words, these aren't problems that prevent something from working correctly, just some problems that make the iPhone just a little harder to use.

Don't expect a software update specifically to fix these problems. But you might expect Apple to quietly make some changes over time to correct these minor faults. Even if they do eventually make these corrections, for a company known for paying attention to detail, you have to wonder who fell asleep at the wheel.

Yeah, but coming from a company that basically implies themselves to be almighty and perfect, iOS 7 is one flawed and imperfect mess...

"Even if they do eventually make these corrections, for a company known for paying attention to detail, you have to wonder who feel asleep at the wheel."

Thank you, Alan, my point and observation exactly. I do hope Apple will fix these issues quickly.

Looks like the results of being rushed, nothing more. A couple weeks delay could have fixed a wealth of this.

I doubt it since closed testing almost never shows as many bugs as open testing. There is no such thing as perfect code. They just haven't made such a major change in a very long time.

True, but many of these are glaringly obvious. Obvious to the point it makes you wonder how they were missed.

I love iOS 7 and bugs don't bother me, but I'd prefer not to have them. iOS 7 is great, so I think that Apple is going have great future.

Seems to be that people don't complain about too many Apple articles unless they are positive articles.

Just an observation lol.

Ahhhh...yeah? This article shows Apple makes mistakes too. Why would anyone (except ios7 fans) complain about this article?

What ever, man. Your bias brain is missing the point.

Nope, I get it. But it seems you've missed mine. Apple nor any of the idevices are perfect and is about time someone pointed that out.

The irony here is that no one claims them to be perfect except the iHaters themselves lol

Well because half of the positive news is rehashes of older articles twisted in a new way. Even this is a meh article that really doesn't point anything useful out that we didn't already know.

Man are they going to have enough server space to list all that? ;)

And I thought Android was the only buggy laggy mobile OS. Boy was I wrong.

Please, please tell me you are joking. Android 4.4 Kit Kat needs only 0.5 ghz to operate, while iOS 7 requires about 1 ghz to run smoothly. If you know anything about phones, you would know that UIs make Android laggy, not Android itself. For example, Touchwiz by Samsung layers over Android, which slows it down greatly. I have a Stock Android 4.4 Kit Kat Galaxy S4 and I have no issues or bugs whatsoever. When there are bugs on Cyanogenmod, they are updated each day, yes each day, known as Nightlies.

Try that with stock Android, i.e Cyanogenmod, which have nearly zero flaws.

I also flashed a 4.4 rom on my S4 but had to flash back to 4.3 because of the exchange bug/calendar bug.

That is what happens when you flash an unofficial ROM.. wait for the stable nightlies or even better, M Snapshots or RC ones..

These flaws don't seem to be all that bad. I sure they're easily fixed.
