iOS7 Upgrade remorse...apparently not just me!

Up daters beware! I unwittingly stumbled into iPhone iOS7! When my phone told me it was available I decided to update not thinking much about it (as in the implications). To my surprise and horror 7 is quite a bit different then 6! So much so, that I dislike it immensely! The screen is too light, the type font too skinny and overall it is not a pleasant experience to use! Additionally, I guess until they update, APPs don't seem to work very well either. I wonder if I can go back to 6? I will at the next opportunity! Apparently I'm not the only one who doesn't like it! Check out the youtube video link below! LOL

Hmmm what does this say about the generation coming up?

How to downgrade to iOS6...

Square works just fine for me and the 40 or 50 other people who use it.. and I have never had any problems...but I have never charged over $8400 in a weekend and only use it with my Samsung phone.

Square is, imho, horrible. They charge extra for keyed transactions, have limits on transaction amount, and if you do a lot of business they will hold your money for up to 30 days. Please, no replies telling me it's never happened to you, I have never been arrested for DUI but I still won't drink and drive. SalesVu is far better, as long as you least $500/month in credit cards.

Wow...! This cell phone technology Leap Frog race really flies over my head. I have a Samsung Galaxy phone that I bought because of the larger screen than my old phone had... plus the fact that it works with my Square. I am not really sure if it is a !OS7, OS6 or !OS5 or whatever,,,but it has been very dependable. Other than accepting credit cards, I only use it to talk and have no desire to text, send mails, watch the internet of any of the other things it does. I am also a person who still uses a camera to take pictures and not my phone.

I personally love the new interface. You can adjust the text size and brightness in the General Settings area.

square,ipad and the new !OS7.... important: the new system upgrade asks you at some point if you want to turn on the microphone...make sure you do!

if you don't square register will not process any sales, found out the hard way last saturday... and they even tell you in square troubleshooting section.

luckily i only lost a few pennies when i had to key one transaction in and incurred in the higher 3.50% and an extra $0.15. turn the microphone on under settings and you should be good to go.

i don't much like the new interface myself and apart from this little microphone detail, never had any problem with square so far...

Works great on iPad. I.don't use iPhone. As for Square, I fired them months ago, so no clue.

No problems with iPad.

I ran a test with my mobile device and I had no problem.

So how does it work with Square???  One of the Facebook groups I'm on indicates there are a few issues.  Beware!!
