In my review for iOS 7 I said the new mobile OS is a worthy upgrade for all iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch users. But that doesn't mean every part of the new OS is spectacular. Some new features in iOS 7 stand out like Control Center, for giving you quick access to the most-used system tools. But other things stand out in a much different way, such as Game Center's new rainbow bubble theme. Seriously? Rainbow bubbles?

Over the past couple of days since my review, I've gathered my favorite new features along with the things that annoy me most about iOS 7.
