For the better part of this day we’ve done nothing but mumble about all the oomph in iOS 7 and how it stands to draw in new crowds for Apple. But that’s just a mere assumption based on what we’ve seen.

For the better part of this day we’ve done nothing but mumble about all the oomph in iOS 7 and how it stands to draw in new crowds for Apple. But that’s just a mere assumption based on what we’ve seen.

The reality is not everyone is happy with the changes brought forth by Apple this week.

Some may not be all that taken with the minimalistic design, while others might be furious to learn that their iPhone 4 could be unable to handle iOS 7 properly.

Which is why we’d like to turn the spotlight over to you.

What features do you love and which ones do you hate in the new iOS 7? Use the comments to share your thoughts with us and the rest of the world (including Apple themselves).

It hasn’t even been a full day since iOS 7 was announced, so here's a rundown of the key features to act as a reference point for your comments.

iOS 7 brings a lot of new stuff to the table, including the handy Control Center, an updated Notification Center, AirDrop for easy file sharing, new Photos options and a much better Camera app with Filters and other cool stuff.

iTunes Radio comes built-in for US residents, and Siri now has improved male and female voices (also limited to certain territories).

Some minor tweaks and features include call blocking in the Contacts app, turn-by-turn walking directions, and a night mode for Maps, improved mail search, Wi-Fi HotSpot 2.0, FaceTime Audio (no video feed), App Store Volume Purchase, a very useful Inclinometer (built-in Stanley level tool), Enterprise single sign-on, and the ability to view PDF annotations.
