    first impressions:

    good:
    -new swipe features to access music player, flashlight, calculator, camera, and some commonly used features (e.g., do not disturb, blue tooth, etc);
    -itunes radio seems promising;
    -3d/perspective thing under icons on the homescreen picture is kind of cool;
    -new sms interface (minus keyboard buttons) looks nice;
    -new siri interface is better than that shitty old one;
    -new siri voice is ok, but maybe she seems a little too eager. chill out bitch.

    not so sure:
    -interface looks faded and bleached out;
    -not used to new icons and new icons aren't very intuitive (at least many of them, to me);
    -bleached out keyboard buttons make typing less certain;
    -runs slow on my iphone 4s;


    i'm sure there are some other things i haven't yet noticed considering i just downloaded it like 20 minutes ago. it's ok, i think.

    I already had 1/2 the new features using jailbreak apps. kinda blows for me. not thrilled. even the airdrop or whatever it is won't work on the 4s

    you're on a 4s, too? there's some noticeable lag-time with certain functions on my 4s. the only thing i'm finding i don't like at all is the faded keyboard with buttons that aren't very clearly outlined. seems stupid to make them blend so much with the background.

    i'm actually digging itunes radio quite a bit. it won't replace pandora, but i like it as much or more than spotify.

    it took a while to d/l, prepare, and install on my 4s, too. the "preparing installation" part took a loooooong time.

    the built-in weather app is better than the old one, but it needs more info (wind, humidity, etc). i'll stick with the weather channel app (twc max).

    basically, and the 3d thing. I forget what that was called. I've had it for years.

    the icon for settings looks like a bathroom ceiling fan (when viewed in normal size like below the big pic below) or like a bicycle chainring when viewed biggie sized.

    I added artists to a station on iTunes Radio but doesn't seem to do a good job with the variety. Like pandora which also does a bad job of shuffling variety added to a station.

    Does iTunes Radio go to ads like pandora


    When I was jailbroken I had a pandora hack that would skip ads and let me download songs.

    that pandora hack sounds killer. i stopped jailbreaking several ios updates ago because it was annoying after a while.

    i just heard one commercial after listening for like 45 minutes. not exactly sure how long, though. commercial was short and it was just one, so kind of like pandora in that way.
