Someone Clocked the iOS7 Icon Animaton Speeds
Can you believe that someone actually took the time to figure this out?
All of those sad and poor unfortunate souls who had been experiencing the effects of parallax sickness or motion sickness might want to take note.
Still with me? Good.
The people at Buzzfeed figured out that opening an icon via a folder in iOS7 it is about 19.29 feet away on your phone (made up distances based on size and relative how far away it seems) and as you open the icon it goes from far away to open in 0.8 seconds with a measurable speed of 16.4 miles per hour if you averaged it…the only problem is that it’s not right to average the speeds as there’s a point as its loading that is faster, over 20 miles per hour.
Almost puts my Tron: Legacy math post to shame, almost.

I sit upon my throne as the owner/shogun of this site, WatchPlayRead. But it wasn't always so. I too have had blogspots, I've done other community blogs, I've even written professionally for other sites out there...yet none of them provided the content I had a real passion for. It is then that I became tired of being a small cog in a big machine, and of writing about nothing but game news after game news article and the periphery that comes from such schlock, like knowing who Michael Pachter and Bobby Kotick are. I decided to start MediaWhoreNetwork.com and ran up my post count there for about 2 years, commenting about any and everything that I wanted to. I even started a weekly podcast that I feel has come into its own. It wasn't until earlier this year that I realized that having the word "whore" in your URL might be a bit limiting to my potential audience. I then made the website and its branding move over to WatchPlayRead.com.
