Getting closer and closer. Even though its still a none-update feature wise i hope they fix majority or all of the bugs and do something about battery life.

EDIT: In before "Installing..." and "Downloading..."

Lol, no. That's in the spring/summer. They probably are beta testing, but not for developers yet.

AKA 'Default Apps'

I highly doubt Apple deem it necessary or useful.

Werd. Generally around WWDC is when they announce the new features and give it to developers.

Why bother. It doesn't benefit them in any way.

You can send your request here: http://apple.com/feedback/.

Cursing on an internet forum won't have any effect.

How is Safari handling AJAX applications now? Are there any improvements?

I could certainly see Apple adding a "Default Apps" feature. They've already added the ability to select which app to open a document in when you tap on one. Default apps would be the next logical step.

Probably wouldn't be until a major update, like iOS 7, though.

* Features I am now looking for are:


1) Default apps e.g. google maps for maps


2) More sharing option. I do not want to share using facebook/twitter only. How about flipboard/google+/dropbox/skydrive ...

I really wish they would put all the default iOS apps in the App Store, and make it so that you can remove them (or at least hide from home screen, but keep accessible via Spotlight Search). Just like they already have it for iBooks, Find Friends, etc.

I would remove Stocks app, Compass app, etc., that I never use.

Another benefit would be the ability to download iPhone-only apps on iPad. Cuz right now, for example, you can't get the default iPhone Calculator and also Passbook on the iPad.

Yes, please! And make Safari more consistent with the OS X Version (gray, combined search/address bar)

While they are at it, they could make some of the icons cleaner looking.

Seems like this theme of "My 'insert device name' doesn't work with my iPhone, when will a Apple fix it!?" has been going around since these devices were made, its sad people just don't learn to buy a $50 piece of hardware to replace the one that doesn't work rather than waiting for months (or ever) for Apple to not fix them because .... let me tell you which one is the issue hint: not your iPhone.
