As the iPhone continues to evolve, I find myself feeling underwhelmed by the implementations of new features, such as multitasking. When the iPhone was first released, the Home button only had one function: to bring you back to the home screen. The initial awe towards the iPhone was not only because of its industrial design or even the beauty of the user interface, but because of how simply everything worked. One tap on the Home button and you're back to the home screen. The iPhone was easy to use because navigating through it worked around the singular function of the Home button. In iOS 4, however, Apple finally added multitasking to the iPhone, which seemed like a godsend to us. But as I sit here trying it on my iPhone, it feels rather unnatural and hacked on to the software. Double-tapping the Home button to bring up the list of currently running apps doesn't make the Home button a "Home button" anymore. To me, the addition of multitasking breaks the entire paradigm of the simple-to-use singular function Home button that Apple introduced to us three years ago. And, it's not even real multitasking in the way that we consider it to be. Instead, as many others before me have pointed out, multitasking on the iPhone is more like a list of recently used apps. I think that the interface for it on the iPhone is greatly flawed and would probably be easier to use if currently running apps were presented to us in a list form that took up more of the screen, but that's another discussion. One of the reasons we wanted multitasking was because we wanted the convenience of not having to go back to the home screen to launch another app. But the implementation of multitasking presents another problem. What if you're currently running, let's say, 30 apps and you want to go back to another app that is all the way at the back of the list? You have to scroll all the way to the end and then launch it. That doesn't sound very convenient to me. Ok, maybe that wasn't a typical use case, but I think you know what I mean. While the iPhone is certainly a great device, I feel that some things, especially multitasking, could be done better.
