iOS7 – Screenshots Aren’t Real

by | Sep 28, 2013 | Essays

Here’s my short thought on iOS7: It sure looks funny (especially the icons and game center) when I see it on review site. However, it feels nice when I’m actually using it. I think, it’s caused by the sharpness of retina display. Those colourful colour scheme makes sense now. Furthermore, it becomes easier to access things I used a lot, thanks to the new spotlight, new app folders, control center, and the new notification center. I also love the how the translucent effect changes the experience of the OS when I simply change the home screen background.


Overall, (currently) I’m a happy iOS7 user. Moreover, this iOS7-related experience brought me to a new insight:

Screenshots aren’t real. You’ll never actually understand a thing until you have actually used it.
