Hi! Everyone! I'm bored with the UI of iOS

Hi! Everyone!

I has been using iPhone since 2007, and now I am using iPhone 4. From 2007 to 2011, I could say the UI of iOS has never been changed so much. I'm very bored with iOS already. Anyone have the same feeling!?

Of course. It's the same UI that they designed to do nothing more than launch one of 13 original apps.

No, becasue I don't care about the UI or its look just concerned if it allows me to do what I want and it does.

The new notification system in iOS5 is one big thing to look forward to.

If you're really in need of something different, jailbreak and see what customisations are out there.

Yes I am pretty bored of the UI tbh, however Winterboard/Cydia solves that problem (to a degree anyway)

Not bored, I actually find it really handy that I'm familiar with the OS, I know where everything I need is etc. That said, I'd still happily take changes, as long as they were for the better of the user experience

Nope - iOS does not bore me.

Nor am I bored with the round tires on my cycle - like iOS, the tires are old but efficient, and I have yet to find a better alternative.

I'm used to this OS, so no not bored at all. Actually, I think many people would complain if apple completely changed their UI.

This is where the wonderful world of themes and jail breaking comes in. Unfortunately, it's the only way you can customize your GUI other than wallpapers (for crying out loud) that Apple finally, begrudgingly gave us.

I share your opinion, but most iphone fans here won't feel the same
Jailbreaking offers a couple of changes

I have said this before, you need to switch to an android device, then after a few months decide you want your iPhone back.

I don't see apple changing the UI of iOS, just look at Lion where its taking a lot of the UI cues from iOS.

As for tiring of it, no I'm content with how it works. Sure its less flexible then android and with android I have an option of using a launcher but for the most part iOS gets the job done.

If you're bored of iOS, you must be using the iPhone more as a toy than as a tool. A proper tool is familiar and doesn't get in the way of the work.

That's awful. I'm so sorry for your misery and the terrible state of affairs of your UI. That must be so disheartening for you. I surely hope you can overcome such a serious problem. The heartbreak of iOS strikes again.

No, I'm not bored with it because I don't spend my day staring at home screens. I do things with the phone.

iOS 5 gives everything a bit of a face lift. The shapes of switches and other UI elements have been tweaked, so if I were you I'd hold off on ditching my iPhone. iOS 5 may give you the 'refreshed UI' you're looking for.
