Asking Apple to offer an option to reduce animations in iOS 7

iOS 7 is a very flat mobile operating system, but for those of us with vestibular conditions that can cause dizziness and sickness the animations when changing apps and in general OS usage can bring on attacks and cause the symptoms to occur. We have the option to reduce the parallax effects, but not to further reduce animations and thus iPhones and iPads running iOS 7 can be difficult, if not impossible, to use. iOS 7 is great for 99.9% of the population, but some of us are really suffering. Apple- please give us the option to turn these animations off...

All going if I can not use ios6 or this problem does not get substantially better. So disappointed in Apple. I was such a fan. Now just another in a growing number of unhappy customers. Or should I say X customers! Shame on you Apple!

The constant zooming is causing not only headaches but Migraines and dizzyness. Please either fix the problems, or lets us go back to IOS 6.1.3. The color schemes on this new IOS 7 is nothing but kiddish. Its just horrible!!! Give us APPLE CUSTOMERS a voice. We spend good money on our iPhones, Ipads and so forth. Bring it back to the way it was. This wasnt what Steve Jobs wanted. God rest his soul!

    1 year ago Comments: Not only the animations but the entire iOS 7 doesn't let the eye rest! The overuse of white everywhere, the eye straining fonts and the piercing icons don't improve my phone. They have destroyed the phone I've loved for years now. what a waste! Whoever made these design choices and approved them are not making adult elegant choices for Apple. it's ruined the experience for me entirely and causes me eye strain, motion sickness and unhappiness with the ghetto immature look of my phone now. what a WASTE!!
