What wimps... if you are getting sick from using your iDevice, go get yourself a samsung galaxy 4 or something, or better yet, just turn off your iPhone

Oh come on...

 

What utter toss!

 

I'm not going to completely discount it, If I use my phone or tablet in a car I get major car sickness, within 20 minutes I have a migraine and I want to vomit. My friends are all fine and thought I was faking it until the time I actually threw up. So i'm not going discount their claims.

I'm not discounting it - I am discounting that it's as strong an issue as they are making out.

 

And yes, I can see it happening in a moving vehicle.  Same way as I used to get it from the STATIC PAGES of a book when in a car!

Have apps animated on and off the screen in a similar manner in iOS for years now? Or not?

The Zooming affect is stronger and everywhere in iOS 7. There is also the parralax effect, but you can turn that off.

Mabye the pastel color scheme does it. My Gnex has a nice theme and I got animations turned on and it doesn't make me sick.

Some people are more sensitive to motion sickness than others. My best friend can't play a game like Portal for more than 15 minutes without feeling sick.

I admittedly get motion sick when I read books but not looking at screens. Magazines are hit and miss depending on the fonts/colors used. Segoe UI and fonts like that are fine. Times and fonts like that I have a tougher time with while reading on the go. I think it's amount of strain and the fact that certain fonts and colors take more processing to get the content and this is prolly why MS chose Segoe based fonts is you process it quick and thus, less strain making you not get as sick.

It seems odd to me that Apple doesn't allow you to cut them off. That seems like a basic function anything should have.

Turning off the effects only stops the parallax effect. Apparently its the abundance of the zooming in and out thats doing it to people, those cannot be disabled.
