iOS 7

Today at Apple’s World Wide Developer Conference iOS 7 was presented among other updates. There is so much that could be discussed but rather than a deep review I’ll give my first impression.

I’ve heard all sorts of reactions to the announcements today, but I’m encouraged. Primarily because iOS was getting long in the tooth and really needed to get an overhaul. However, I will also agree with many that point out how much of the new OS resembles Android. The interesting thing will be how apps will adjust their look/feel to reflect the new updates. It’s a good time to build applications that are focused on user centric interactions.

In the end people are going to be grumpy because it’s different and eventually will move on.
