    why don;t you contact the newstap site..

    https://itunes.apple.com/app/newstap-lite-usenet-newsreader/id297063247?mt=8

    oh look yes newstap have updated it recently from OS5 to OS6.

    I assume yuor refering to newstap lite or do you have the paid version[/QUOTE]

    both newstap and newstap lite were last updated in december 2012, some
    *nine* months ago and well before ios 7 was even announced, let alone
    released.

    they are both the same app from an identical codebase, with the
    difference being than the lite version is feature limited to one
    newsgroup and free and the other has no limitations.

    when one is updated, the other is too (with a few exceptions).

    there is no ios 7 compatible upgrade to install (either version). the
    author has several apps, one of which was just updated a few days ago.

    he may be working on updating his other apps, and the only way to know
    is by emailing him and asking what the status is.

    ranting like a madman or lying about a nonexistent version isn't going
    to fix anything.

    it also has nothing to do with apple. it's a third party app, and a
    rather buggy one at that (not just ios 7 issues).

    Hell! If Tony can get it together to buy one, you shouldn't find it too
    much of a problem getting one into your hands. You already have an
    iPhone, so try it, you might be surprised, I was.

    On my iPad2 running iOS 6.1.3 I have a 5x4 folder grid, that emulates
    the screen layout.

    Are you saying that has changed under iOS 7?

    I have updated my iP4S and I know the folders are of the 3x3 multi-page
    type, and that works quite well for the iPhone.

    prove what? i never said there *is* an app with the feature.

    what i said was that it's a feature that can be easily implemented by
    any developer at any time, and out of the thousands of camera apps,
    there could very well be one or more that does what he wants.

    it also has absolutely *nothing* to do with apple exerting control over
    what features are allowed. if a developer thinks it's a useful feature
    to add and will increase sales, then they'll implement it. if not, they
    won't.

    I was getting frustrated with the slow speed of 3g. And the cost
    difference is negligible. I did have to give up unlimited internet, but
    so far that has not been an issue, as neither of us watch movies on our
    portable devices.

    yes. it's the same 3x3 grid on an ipad which is rather wasteful given
    the additional screen space.

    on an iphone in ios 6 and earlier, it was a 4x3 grid.

    however, in ios 7 you can now have multiple pages in a folder.
    it works fairly well, but they could have had the background home
    screen still slightly visible rather than completely blocked out, as it
    was before.

    It's a matter of proof.[/QUOTE]

    Proof of what claim. Quote the claim that lacks substantiation, please.
    Here is the only claim I can find:

    "there are zillions of camera apps. certainly one (or more) of those
    has the features you want."

    The "zillions" is a clear exaggeration (since it's a made up number),
    the rest of the sentence says that nospam is certain that there are apps
    that fits his need (in fact, "certainly" and "I'm certain" isn't
    analogous - "certainly" means he has a strong belief that it is true).

    So there has been no claim that there ARE such apps, so what proof is
    required?
    Implications doesn't require proof, Peter. Explicit claims does.
    Implications are suggestive references to something, not explicit claims.

    I looked into it. For my uses I prefer my choice of a new notebook. Yes
    it is heavier, but it works for me. I did not want a glossy screen to
    process images, and I wanted a quick way to download images from my card
    to a portable drive, while traveling. So far this is working well for my
    needs.

    the anal retentive nitpickers will focus on 'certainly'.

    so just to appease them, change that to 'there is an incredibly good
    chance that out of several thousand camera apps, one probably does
    exactly what you want.'

    however, as i said in another post, if developers don't think that
    particular feature is important, then there may very well not be an app
    with that feature. that also means that apple knows it's not important
    and didn't bother either.

    unless you write your own apps for your own personal use, you aren't
    going to get every feature you want and have it work exactly the way
    you want.

    email the developers and request the feature and tell them that it is
    important. maybe they'll listen. or maybe they won't. and that includes
    apple too.

    No, isn't that the point of it locking though. ?

    That is why I have my Colorspace UDMA in my bag for road trips. That
    gives me more than enough storage space for my triple redundant "on the
    road" back-up protocol.
    ....and it saved me in 2009 when my D300 was stolen in South Africa.

    Why would the opinion of iOS developers be how you would determine
    overall satisfaction with a new iOS? Satisfaction stats should be the
    opinions of the majority of users who have no connection at all to the
    industry. If you have to be a iOS developer to feel comfortable with
    the system, then the system has problems. I'm sure that some industry
    insiders had great things to say about Vista when it first came out.

    I don't maintain that the majority of users of iOS7 are *not* happy,
    but saying that they are at this point - and saying so based on the
    input of techie writers and iOS developers - doesn't convince me of
    anything.
    Well of course it is. How else do we determine satisfaction with
    anything new? You have the vocal minority who express their
    dissatisfaction, and the vocal minority who rave about the good
    things. The majority is unheard from at this point.

    Eventually, the stats will come out based on some legitimate surveys
    (not done in airplane aisle) where a statistically significant sample
    will be projected to represent the majority of users. There will also
    be some less-than-legitimate surveys that project biased - for and
    against - figures.

    Figures don't always mean what they are supposed to represent. Apple
    has announced the sale of 9 million iPhones over the past weekend. An
    analyst for Piper Jaffray claims that only 5.5 million were sold to
    consumers, and Apple is counting 3.5 million units sold to carriers
    and unsold to consumers. Apple didn't lie, but they "twisted" the
    numbers.
    Well, yes, but how does that indicate satisfaction or dissatisfaction?
    While "most" have it, your statement was that "most people like it".
    If merely having a system means you like it, then Vista is a
    wonderful, well-loved, system.

    I upgraded my iPad because I assumed the newer version has some sort
    of benefit. I can't say I like it or don't say I'm unhappy with it.
    I don't see Dudley as a troll.

    No argument there. The problem is without knowing what keyword to
    use, you have to scroll through the whole list. Eventually, I'll come
    across apps that might have interest.

    OK, but at least I know what to expect. Just tried it, and it works
    nicely. Thanks for the information.

    Just tried the HDR - worked reasonably well but would have been better
    with a tripod - there was some blurring on the mixed parts of the image.

    Wonder why they include HDR and yet not exposure compensation. Curate's
    egg?

    But they would be wrong. "certainly" and "certainty" are not the same
    thing. "certainly" is interchangeable with "surely" or "plainly",
    neither of which constitutes an explicit claim.

    Me saying "certainly they know what the word means" is not me claiming
    that they know what the word means, it's me explicitly stating an
    assumption of mine.
    No need, really.
    I know for a fact that there is at least one very very popular camera
    app out there that have exposure adjustments for the user when taking
    pictures.

    I even suspect that it¨'s the very same camera app you talked about
    earlier :)
