  • iOS Hacker Pod2g Says He is About to Switch to an Android Device Because of iOS 7

    Well-known for his efforts in the jailbreak community, especially for his help with the most recent evasi0n jailbreak tool for iOS 6.0-6.1.2, is iOS hacker pod2g.

    Pod2g said Monday morning via his Twitter that he is thinking of making the switch to an Android device after having spent a few days testing and having been dissatisfied with iOS 7 beta 1. Pod2g's comments rail Apple's design and features that Apple made available in iOS 7:

    In my honest opinion, this version of iOS is the worst move Apple did in a long time.

    iOS 7 design is awful, it's slow, battery life time is the worst ever, it's full of UI bugs and crashes. OK it's beta 1, but still.

    I am pretty disappointed by the features I've seen in iOS 7. No revolution here. No big news. Just kid painting.

    They (Apple) are good at convincing people their software is 'amazing'.
    iOS 7’s icons, along with much of its user interface changes, have been frowned upon since the initial unveiling at the WWDC 2013 keynote, but as usual, Apple managed to tempt people to update by making their software seem “amazing” as pod2g puts it. Rumors have indicated that the icons are likely to change before the final release this Fall. iOS 7 also added tons of new features to the mobile operating system, many of which were available for jailbreakers first.

    Apple’s Jonathan Ive took the challenge of overseeing iOS’ design and features after Scott Forstall was ousted from the company. This had a major impact on the design behind iOS 7, which for most is going to be like learning a new user interface.

    Although iOS hacker pod2g may leave the scene for Android, his intentions on sticking around for helping with iOS exploits and developing jailbreaks are unclear. iOS hacker Joshua Hill is pretty confident that the next jailbreak may come from him specifically.

    How do you feel about the changes in iOS 7?

      LOL! I switched several months ago but I still frequent the forums. I just don't get excited like I used to. I guess because all the "new" things the iPhone can do, Android has been doing for a while. Can you tell I'm a convert?

      Yup! Its nice not having to wait for a Jailbreak every time iOS is updated or a new iPhone is out. Android has come a long way in the last 18 months. ICS and JB are really, really good. I will never go back.

      The Only thing I'm really disappointed in is the icons!! They are god awful. Why wouldn't you want put more effort into them. IMO apple should buy the rights for the Jaku icons (exaggerating). Seriously though, iOS 7 icons are absolutely disgusting 😝
