Apple "Sources have described iOS 7 as 'black, white, and flat all over'. This refers to the dropping of heavy textures and the addition of several new black and white user interface elements." I couldn't be happier.

...Example: this home screen-based launcher system has to go. It's far too cluttered now, and the home screen should be only where *you* put *your* most favored apps for quick access...


People put most favoured apps onto home screen for quick access and other apps throughout other pages. No one has been forced not to put most favoured apps on the first page! I find harder to use Android because I have to enter into another page by clicking an icon and swipe through to get to the desired app otherwise I just need to swipe through pages to find one. See? One more click makes me feel it is really annoying. So ..You sound like you have never played with any iOS device.

Some people just don't get it. It's not my *favorite* apps that I have to look for. It's those that I don't use all that often that are hiding when I need to find them, and that's just me. It's tedious but not hard, as I know how *my* device is laid out. I also have to support others' iDevices however, and you'd not believe some of the screwed up layouts I've seen. Try finding settings when it's on page 5 of 9 in a folder called "unused." I shit you not, I've seen this. It's quicker when dealing with this just to go to spotlight and find the damn thing... except that the idiot user had turned all spotlight searches off. Having a straight up "all apps" list would've made my life a lot easier. It's not as though the two can't coexist.

You do realize you can put all your apps on your home screen on android too, right? No extra clicks required. And yes I believe the early versions of Ios did not let you organize your icons.

You can even configure the Play Store to automatically create shortcuts for newly installed apps on the home screen(s). In fact, that's the default (which is annoying as hell when I forget to disable it upon re-flashing a ROM/gapps).
