Applications designed for OS 6, will run on os 7?

What could be the problem?

they should run without problems, but it never hurts to test them anyhow.

The only pain for me has not been OS 7.0 but the change in screen resolution or OS 7 devices like the 9900, which means, for example, that a 2 pixel gap is hardly visible whereas it was fine on the older devices. 

 

Or do I just need my eyes checked?

The resolution change has been quite a dramatic change from a UI perspective. Another issue is that the simulator does not render screens quite the same as the actual device. I've found the need to code in a more device specific manner since OS7.
