iOS 7 Squandered a Year of Third-Party Development on Superficial Changes

I'm frustrated with the current state of affairs on iOS. It's beenalmost a year since version 7.0 was announced, yet as a developer Ifeel like a year's worth of work has brought about only superficialchanges to the apps I work on and the apps I use…

It's been a frustrating year for iOS devs and Jared Sinclair sums up perfectly my own feelings on the matter. I disagree, however, that the aesthetic changes were "unnecessary"— there's never a good time to perform a UI overhaul. At least with that now out of the way, Apple can focus on making the OS even better. I have high hopes for iOS 8.
