iOS design poll shows users strongly favor iOS 7

0. phoneArena 07 Aug 2013, 18:09 posted on

When Apple first announced iOS 7 and showed off the new design, there was a pretty big backlash amongst designers and average users alike. But, either people are getting used to the new look, or the initial response was simply a mixture of Apple-hate and change-hate, because a new design poll is showing that users strongly favor the look of iOS 7...

Yes, I'm pretty sure people forget Android was inspired by iOS because that is an absolute falsehood. Android was first designed in 2003, four years before Apple announced the iPhone and iOS. I'm pretty sure no one that is this involved in mobile industry to be on Phone Arena daily and commenting doesn't know Android is Linux based.I'm pretty sure some can even name the Linux kernel it's modeled after, Apache.

You're precious company didn't inspire Andy Rubin and his team to create the OS, nor did Google create it to rival Apple. Google didn't even purchase the company until two years into design process.Mind you, two full years still before Apple had announced anything.

What blind Apple followers seem to forget is that at its core, iOS is Unix based. A simple application launcher. Nothing more. Not a true operating system. A simple product for simple minded people.

Honestly, Jedi, I was going to. But for a guy who hates Apple and Steve Jobs for self boasting, he boasts about his video post after post after post..... To a level where it's annoying! I have blood coming outta my ears!

Just like Android 2.x apps don't fit in Android 4.x UI (Holo UI, on screen menu key...)

darkk... you cool with me man but this trying to be cool on both sides act is pretty lame...

i saw the video, what would make you think he's in film school? the video is already put together and used to mock all types of controversial events, all he did was add text to the voice like thousands of other people do... smh. Dude only has two video uploads and the second one is just a text copy of the first.

Don't see how people can wake up every morning get dressed just to hate on a thriving business all day. I can see if android/google is paying him to do it but he only has 10,000 views so that lets you know he's wasting his time.

the video is funny but you are overly crediting this guy.

It's not a "must see" you're just helping the flames rise in here.

"i loved it, once again you're very talented" lmfao... smh drop the buddy buddy act man.

G2G I don't choose sides bro, to me tech is tech. I have absolutely no reason to dislike that guy, cuz he dislikes apple. I don't know him, never met him, and probably never will. I also didn't know the source of his work, that's why I asked. PA is a tech site, but this is also social networking. I enjoy chatting with people from all over the globe, apple and google ate both big greedy companies. Let the fanboys choose sides, I choose to be cool with people, not make enemy's of them. What has he personally done to me, to where I shouldn't be cordial with him cuz he chooses android. Him and I argue all the time about tech. And what he did does take talent

I do see your point too, about attacking thriving businesses. That's why I'm a techie, not a fanboy. I understand that all this stuff is simply big business in motion. Apple google Sammy, and the rest simply want our consumer cash, but fanboys from both sides think they're loyalty makes the better than the other. Sh€€p from camp android, are no different than sh€€p from camp apple, moto, Nokia etc. that's one of many reason I don't choose sides and I use multiple OS's.

that's why i respect you so much here man...

there's more people here like you (nonfanboy) but most just keep quiet to avoid the arguments.

but to stay on topic :-) I'm looking forward to iOS 7 and pleased with the way apple runs its cell phone business. no matter what model iphone you have you are still able to enjoy what the OS brings... yes some bells and whistles aren't available due to lack of hardware in old models but i feel it doesn't force apple users to upgrade... at my job (ATT) there are people that still use the 3gs or iphone 4. I have the 5 but we all still share the same experience in iOS.

I'm no fanboy but i'm pleased with Samsungs progression as well and like android as a whole. Looking to purchase the Nexus 7... i use my iPad strictly for business/photoediting/email but android brings the top specs for use in other categories that i'm interested in. and its so much easier to get your hands on some software because its so open.

Do you have the beta version of iOS 7 currently on your device?

I dont get how you can say Project butter was iOS inspired...Because you want a smooth OS, means you want it to be like iOS....really? They just wanted to smooth some things out...You make it sound like nothing was smooth untill iOS. I stand by the only thing apple did was use a capacitive (spelling?) screen correctly. For that i respect them. But even the app store...is just linux software center remade, and same with googles. But google doesn't tout their crap around like their god for making it. Everything's (besides MS) made and based off Unix....EVERYONE respect and give Unix the appreciation is deserves.

The new nexus 7 has my interest too. It's that, the full size ipad5, or the new mini. I have an iPad 3 rite now, works great but its about two years old and pretty dinged up. Want something newer looking

the videos are just for fun. Nobody paid me, in fact, if you don't think Steve Jobs woke up every moment thinking how he could destroy Android, unjustly mind you, they are a competitor, deal with it Steve, maybe you can understand why I made a couple videos poking fun at the most ridiculous statement a head of a company could possible make!

"I will spend my last dying breath if I need to, and I will spend every penny of Apple's $40 billion in the bank, to right this wrong, I'm going to destroy Android, because it's a stolen product. I'm willing to go thermonuclear war on this." ~Steve Jobs

Who's the lame fanboy now? Steve that's who!

Truth be told I went to buy a iPad 1, with $550 in my pocket ready to spend... When I went to the apple store and saw the pitiful 1024x768 display it was a deal breaker for me... iPad Mini was also on my radar too, yet again, another rushed product with a terrible display resolution. Yes, both iPad 1 and Mini 1 are rushed products. The first was to start the market first and the mini was to stop the bleeding of all the 7" Androids. Neither iPad1 or Mini 1 are acceptable with those resolutions. And iPad 2 was even more insulting repeating the resolution and mediocre specs. iPad 3 is a nice tab and iPad 4 is another bilk against iFollowers.

See you guys see nothing but hate from me, nah, it is NOT random hate, every thing iHate about apple they earned with their highest of high margins, low to mediocre technology and to top that off, year after year incremental upgrades and S monikers designed to just rape their iFollowers into owning 5 iPads in less than 4 years costing nearly $2800 if you own all 5 eventually... and iFollowers do just that :(

This is kind of a "duh". Anything that is new, but not fully out people want just so that they can say that they have it and their device is unique.
Once it comes out to all devices this poll should be retaken.

most people voting probably didn't actually try iOS7 - aka having a dev. account or downloading it illegally. Just my opinion, but iOS7 looked awesome when I watched the conference and in apple demos & the webs BUT in reality it was terrible, I have the latest version on an iPhone and it is overhyped with "android-ish" features and in my opinion is not that great...

also, they don't let you easily go back to iOS6...
