Should I Update To iOS 7?

As the title says...should i update to iOS 7?

My 'main' device is an iPod Touch 5th Generation. By main i mean that its always in my pocket when im at home, i use it to browse the net (coz of the bigger screen), i have all my games on it. I have a jailbreak on my iPhone 4 iOS 6.1.2, and i know that iOS 7 would be buggy/laggy on it, so i wont even bother trying to update that to iOS 7 yet.

I've heard that quite a few apps/games crash on iOS 7, is that true?
Have you guys (the people who have iOS 7 installed) had any crashes just by browsing the net or playing games?

I'd really like some advice, i dont know what it is about iOS 7 but i just have an urge to have it installed

I havent tried iOS 7 but I'm not enamored to either so personally I would test it on the iP4 rather than the touch. The iP4 can be restored to 6.1.2 and JB again (with your saved blobs of course) but not the 5th gen touch.

Yeah, i hear what you're sayin....as my iPod Touch 5Th Gen is on iOS 6.1.3, it has no jailbreak.
So im thinking should I stick to a stock iOS 6.1.3 or a stock iOS 7 (Beta)?

Oh ok, nevermind then. I assumed the touch was jailbroken. Just try it on the touch then. Just be sure of the expiration date of the beta.

Well, apps don't work yet because developers aren't updating their apps to the iOS 7 library. I'm running iOS 7 with MANY code signed apps like skype for example and hadn't had a single crash yet, even when IMing. Haven't had an issue with youtube audio either.
If I've helped you in any way, and you don't hit the Thanks button, you're an ass because that's the least you can do for me.

Im on ios 7 now on my iphone 5, im hoping that it looks a little different by the time it gets a public remix, if not then hopefully a jailbreak will allow us to alter some of its appearance. It has some nice features but opinions vary. I did'nt discover any real problems restoring from my saved back up and if I wanted to at the minute I could restore to 6.1.4 but for now im happy to play with ios 7 to see if ot grows on me a little more...........
Before i do one, did I help, please hit the THANKS button

I installed both betas on my iPhone 4. I like it but it lags a bit to much so I downgraded back to iOS 6.1.2.

Once beta 3 get released, I will try out that one as well.

Updated and now gonna go back to iOS 6.1.3 after 24 hours. Its quite good but the only reason why im not sticking to iOS 7 is that some apps/games aren't yet compatible with iOS 7, I dont want to have to waste my apps/games by not getting the chance to play them. Other than this iOS 7 is actually really good!


Thanks to those that replied.....consider this topic solved.
I'll leave it up in case other people might have similar questions before updating to iOS 7

IMO, wait for beta 4 at least. I am using beta 2 on my iPhone 4S and I am enjoying it, i was jailbroken before it. But anyway, most of apps that uses the camera (instagram, the camera itself, vine) crashes most of time! And when it doesn't crash, it resprings. But sometimes it works fine... If you are really looking forward to it, wait for beta 3, and then update it

For TL;DR people: Ios 7 is beautiful but the beta 2 still very unstable yet.

if you have no idea what you doing maybe going to 7 may not be for you something to ponder.
