With the iPhone without JB, I can only do what Apple allows me to do. With JB, I get restless and I keep trying tweaks ... until the device fails. Always happened to me with the Ipad. When that happens and I have to restore, there is already a new ios has no JB. And in those periods without JB the device never fails. Of all the tweaks, there were only two who really interested me: Zephyr and Annyatach. But never worked in ios 6 JB (at least until more than a year ago, my time having definitively left the JB.'s Annyatach I sold, but I do not like putting my credit card credit anywhere. Databases that contuenen payment information are the most popular.
So I decided that I preferred a device with two less stable tweaks but invariably one should restore after trying some tweak incompatible.
When I arrived by chance ios7. I do not see big improvements, but I think there is one that is not in ios 6 (not remember exactly, but you can check it as it is the ios you have): slide from the bottom up and have a direct conacceso menu Lantern , wifi, airplane mode, bluetooth, music player and some other things. I think that's why I stayed in ios7, which could have ruled since installed it on their beta versions, so he could still return to ios6. The new interface ended up liking me. And both the phone and the ipad work very well. When I bought the Iphone, the Ipad and Iphone ios7 had had ios6. By taste (7 interface looks ugly at first, but then you get caught) it went up to ios7. I had a technical reason, just my personal taste. And it works brilliantly.
And finally, I will say that my two devices are to be old gadgets. Is the ipad 2 and iPhone 4s. And still work excellently with ios7. Android or Windows is impossible to advance two steps in the versions of the operating system without the devices or PCs from becoming slow and unstable. Therefore, my experience in ios7 has been, and is, very good. And I'm very happy to have an Ipad running at full 2011 and updated in 2014.
My opinion is that an iPhone costs the two Sansung. But do what you usually hard to last three Samsung.
That's my experience and my reasons for ios7 without JB. A greeting and I hope I've helped.
As for applications, I understand that we are no longer at the time that the Office cost U $ S 200. Apps now cost the same as a pack of cigarettes. Therefore, I do not need to hack. What I bought it and in my Apple account, and have not spent fifty dollars. Another reason for not having JB. If the apps will cost the price of a Windows or an official playstation game would not hesitate to have the JB to not drain my wallet. But if the software is available now, I do not mind spending it. I'm not compulsive, I must have one ten paid apps and I think I'm exaggerating.
The other thing I've found over time is that there are infinite versions of native applications. Lots of mailers, calendars, agendas, etc.. Try, and always returned to native apps.
The truth is that I'm very comfortable and happy with both devices. And I give them many hours of use every day and not only work very well: it gives pleasure to use.
I bought my Ipad when Jobs died. I said "something must have designed this man." And actually, years later, is that I do not use computers. When I pay a tablet of another brand, well below the notice.
I am one of those who regarded Apple snob thing. And now I understand that the "user experience". Because it's not a Mercedes Benz and Fiat, where immediately notes the differences. In the're noticing idevices with use. With ios7 me the same thing happened.
I hope you serve! Greetings. I've been too long and repetitive, ha ha
