As I posted several days ago, I am not at all pleased with iOS7. Since that posting there have been some serious additional problems that have come to light:
- a security problem which an update to iOS7 is scheduled to address.
- a nausea problem resulting from the zooming and motion on the screen [ht MA].
This second problem has not yet been addressed by Apple and seems to affect a substantial number of people.
Apple’s latest and greatest operating system is making people sick – literally.
The animations and transitions added to iOS 7 have unexpectedly been making people nauseous and giving them motion sickness.
The issue is so prevalent, in fact, that it has an entire message thread filled with complaints on Apple’s forums, first spotted by The Verge, and complaints have been building on Twitter as well.The main source of the problem appears to be the zooming animation added in the recent upgrade.
Examples abound at the Daily Mail site linked above.
More silliness and non-functional glitz from from a highly paid designer that actually makes the product worse. What was Apple thinking? That silly glitz would help them in the smartphone wars with Samsung?
And what is with all the beta testers of iOS7? Are they not critical enough? Are they insensitive to poor designs?
