Personally I'm not fussed either way by the redesigned iOS 7, although I would prefer the fonts to be more legible, given what others have said. Unless it was hideous, I'd probably have been happy whatever they did.
On a related issue, another announcement made yesterday was iWork for iCloud. I hope this doesn't mean that they are going to discontinue the native Mac and iOS versions--although Apple seems to have been very neglectful in ongoing iWork development as it is.
I'd be interested to hear others' thoughts on iWork or iCloud. Is anyone looking forward to using this? What's the main advantage to it over native versions other than the the ability to edit iWork documents in Windows?
I think Apple will be maintaining iWork apps - they'd better! AFAIK the web version won't be nearly as functional as the apps, although it's apparently pretty darned good for a web service.
Was thinking about this today and realised it will be a boon for me. I do a lot of preparation for lecturing at home, and prefer using Pages. I then download the files from Dropbox on old College PPC Macs for printing. That means a lot of fluffing around with file formats. This makes iCloud make a whole lot of sense to me - now I'll keep everything in iCloud and don't have to worry what format it's in.
Looks like this issue of privacy has been flogged on the Apple forums and the answer is basically no. Apple's own ads for the iCloud indicate that they have the encryption keys and that they don't hand them out willy nilly - the salient point being they have the keys. If you want control over your keys you need something like Spideroak, it would appear.
So do you mean that Apple can access my passwords? (I know they wouldn't bother, but this whole NSA thing has me spooked, especially as a 'foreigner' using US companies for cloud services.) I know, I know, but it's the principle. And it seems pretty pointless having strong master password protection if someone else, under any circumstances, can circumvent them. If Apple can access my iCloud keychain I guess 1Password will keep my business. Might be handy for my wife though, her lack of password security drives me crazy.
But overall I'm pretty happy with both OS updates and wonder how they might affect Accordance, if at all.
