Shocking

I’ve worked in the mobile space in some capacity for the last 15 years. This blows me away.

According to an earlier report on TechCrunch, a 2013 study said that two-thirds of the Fortune 100 were not ready for mobile search. And after running some tests this year, it appears that progress has been slow – as noted above, just over half (52 percent) of the Fortune 500 operated mobile-friendly websites ahead of Google’s update.

It’s Here – iOS 7

It’s here and the most noticeable affect is the instant aging of any apps that have not been updated.

On the whole I’m very happy with the update, though I have only had it for a few hours. I have two complaints worth noting.

1. I find myself accidentally activating Spotlight search a fair bit. This may be the result of lazy swiping on my part.

2. Folders are designed to take on the background color which almost causes them to blend into the background (especially on the iPad.) While not a functional issue, it’s an aesthetic I’ll just have to get used to in iOS 7.

So far I haven’t experienced any issue with the update on my iPhone 5 or my iPad 4. This looks like another win for Apple.
