    IOS 7.0.2

    Ah so the IOS 7.0.0 that was recently launched has been replaced by IOS 7.0.2 already. Maybe that would account for why my iPad suddenly burst into song this morning

    It's one of those things I wish they hadn't updated in the first place.

    I haven't seen anything that's an improvement on IOS6 yet.

    Has it fixed the Find my Friends App?
    IOS 7 has broken it badly and there are a lot of unhappy parents out there unable to keep track of their kids and partners now!

    Another serious glitch on the scale of google maps it seems. It now only works if running in the foreground which of course is really useful

    So far my experience of iOS 7

    1) I like how you flick up or down to either search ya iPhone or get control centre

    2) Maybe just me but I have disabled push on my email accounts etc but seems to be very battery hungry and I'm lucky if I've got power at the end of the day. I always have my wifi and Bluetooth off when I don't use them

    3) Getting prompted with message boxes whilst in the middle of typing is annoying. Don't recall that happening on iOS 6 but not totally sure on this point. Think it did but it was a bar along the top but it didn't stop you from typing

    iOS 7 seems like an amalgamation of windows phones and android taking into consideration the look of some aspects of the GUI ie the back space or delete button on at least a Nokia lumia and iOS 7 for the phone is exactly the same pretty much. I also say android now as you do swipe actions to search ya phone or get control centre. Androids had this before iOS as far as quickly being able to turn ya wifi devices on or off and making or having shortcuts to do this without having to go into settings etc

    4) on a few occasions just with the Facebook app and literally a couple of other things opened its frozen for about 10 seconds before coming back and being responsive again and I was connected to 5ghz WiFi at the time so not related to a slow connection

    I have noticed another thing but it's only happened once so not sure ref that being an issue or not

    From my experience it's not really created equal. On some devices it runs fairly well (iPhone 5, newer iPods and iPads), on older devices ... not so much. On my iPad2 it looks terrible, is missing quite a lot of the visual bits and pieces and there are some serious chugs where nothing responds for small gaps (which is super annoying and somehow more annoying on a touch based device than with a mouse and keyboard). I know they want to make things "better" but they have to at least keep in mind that not everyone drinks their kool-aid and replaces their iOS devices every year. On the iPad2 and iPhone4 it feels like it is still a beta to me, like someone just walked away part way through the re-design and said screw it and never came back to it. 7.0.2 didn't help to relieve any of the chugs for my setup.

    Have you tried any of the suggestions in the article below?

    If you think iOS 7 feels slow here’s how to speed it up « OS X Daily

    I updated an iPad2 to iOS 7 at work using the .IPSW file and it doesn't seem particularly slow after being restored.
