iOS 7 – initial impressions

June 15, 2013 Comments off


I have just re-built my apps against the iOS 7 SDK and tried them on the simulator. WOW! Apple have COMPLETELY changed the default look of the navigation bars, tables, section headers, popups … etc, pretty much everything!

For the most part my apps work, however to support iOS 7 natively there are a bunch of things that will definitely need fixing. For example table heights, the blue buttons, text alignment, colours … etc.

I haven’t tried running my existing (published) apps on iOS 7, so it will be interesting to see how they look and behave. More on that later no doubt(*) …
