A Visual Overview of iOS 7 and Failed Attempt at Mavericks

I captured a few screenshots of the visual experience of the new iOS 7. People are saying “this” and “that” about the design but it doesn’t bug me one bit.

My wife asked me how I felt about it and this was my gut response:

I don’t care about it either way – this is what it’s going to be and I’m fine with that.

This is one of the nice things about “closed” decision-making and a closed-source experience: the end-user doesn’t get a spot at the table. Sometimes (rarely) I just want to be told what to like. I have my freedoms elsewhere.

It’s an Apple-world my friends and I’m feel ok with that. Bring it. It is what it is.

If you want some more specific thoughts on how iOS 7 is impacting my project, Pressgram, read that here.

Oh, and before we get to your visual distraction for the day, I did try to install the Developer Preview (Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks) and that completely failed.

I took a video of what was happening as well:

Sigh. I’ll have to dedicate a full weekend to debug and figure out what the heck went wrong.

Ok. Here’s your visual stimulant for the day:

Have a good one folks.

    After bailing out water for two hours during a storm last night I got it installed 1st try around midnight. I love it, finding new functions not documented all morning so far.

    I am a fan of it to be honest. Less is more!

    I don’t have a developers account to be able and try it but I’m having lots of fun seeing the screenshots and reading what is new! Hope all the little bugs get worked out before the release…
