Owl City's Adam Young Behind iOS 7 Sounds?

Posted by - 02:24 PM on 10/22/13
9to5Mac is reporting that Owl City was behind many of the new iOS 7 ringtones. Kinda feel like they should have gone for Ben Gibbard and left Owl City to Samsung ... but what can you do?
According to his discography page, Owl City founder and singer Adam Young is the creator of iOS 7′s sounds. While the visual design changes are most evident in the new operating system, another noticeable change is how most of the regular sounds are revamped and a slew of new ring and text tones are included.

That makes tons of sense. "By the Seaside" and "Night Owl" are both awfully Owl City-ish titles

This site always seems to have a lot of unwarranted Adam Young hate.

I agree, it's annoying. Adam is a super talented guy and deserves all the success he's had.

Surprised that valentines day photo hasn't been posted yet.
Edit:


Also, Ben Gibbard joke would have been more entertaining if it wasn't Tamborelo who did the programming on give up....
