Apps That Make the Most of iOS 7

With the recent release Apples iOS7 operating system for the iPhone, users of the smartphone are determining which Apps run better with the new system.  This New York Times article provides the names of Apps that have greater functionality in the new operating system.

Rather than listing out the Apps, the article includes paragraph after paragraph of text that does not call any attention to the specific Apps (see photos below).


A list in this article would have allowed readers to simply scan text to see which Apps run better in iOS7. The large chunks of texts make it difficult for online readers that are trying to gather as much information as possible in a short amount of time.

The article should have listed each App by name and then provided its description and explanation why it functions better in the new operating system. In this case, it doesn’t matter whether the list is ordered or not.  Just employing a list would help readers to pull the most pertinent information from this article.
