re: Apple iOS 7's Best Features
I am more interested in iRadio, because I am already iTunes Match subscriber. Mission Control is a good add but overall I am not sure if I like the flat concept. I like the current icons but I must agree excess use of skeuomorphic concept is little cheesy. Multitasking is much much better. The integration of Bing with Siri is interesting. Looks like Apple and MS are forming an alliance against Google, which is not bad at all for the competition. It would be interesting to see the final product.

iTunes radio, a more modern look, and the in-car connections (and the fact they already have automobile manufacturers signed on) especially makes this new operating system very attractive, even to those of us (me, included) who use Android (though, for everything else, I prefer Apple).

If they allowed changing the font size for all OS related text (e.g. settings, text under icons, message box, etc.) I think they could stem some of the user base loss due to older people having difficulty reading the relatively smaller text compared with other smartphone devices (e.g. Android, Windows). I know a quite a few individuals that switched from iPhone with that as a major complaint.
