iOS7 has picked/copied a lot of features from Android, Windows Phone, BlackBerry, webOS and even Meego. It looks like MIUI!
It is not that bad an idea though. Everybody steals from everybody else. And in the end, that means we as consumers get to benefit from a universal set of great features.
iOS 7 is such a blatant copy of Andriod and windows:
"Lots of design features lifted straight from competitors, where's the outrage? Control Center has been in Android for years. The App Switcher is basically lifted from WebOS/Ice Cream Sandwich. Omnibox search in Safari finally arrived, but Chrome had it way before. Speaking of Chrome, the tab switcher in mobile Safari looks exactly like the design in Chrome for iOS/Android except it is slightly angled. Sharing state across browsers? Invented by Chrome.
Imagine the outrage if someone had a patent on these features and sued Apple, but yet if someone even uses an icon that looks similar to an Apple design, cries go out of "THEFT!"
Apple needs to drop the obnoxious claims of ripoffs if they're going to engage in hypocrisy and patent trolling."
-Rightly pointed out by rjc999 on another forum..
Why doesn't anybody sue Apple for this act of copying.
iOS 7 is a BIG FLOP. Infact, whole WWDC 2013 is a BIG FLOP.. Nothing innovative, the Mac Pro looks like a trash dustbin.
Everything new in iOS 7 already exists in Android, WP8.. Gloomy picture for Apple in the near future IMO.
They were introducing these features as if it has landed 'first' on the planet,
The background looks sooo Windows Phoney!!! Apple had plenty of time for leapfrogging others but instead they come up with such copying. I hope Microsoft sues them for good.
We definitely know that they brought the touch-screen-mobile revolution with their iPhone.
They've developed a consumer mindset that their products are unique and stand apart from the crowd.
They've set the standard for themselves. So whatever they do out of their standards, will be not considered as their products/thoughts.
