    Go to Music app (more) and you see that Ping, Podcasts, Audiobooks, and iTunes U are all there.

    It really doesn't make sense. Podcast and iTunes U have their own apps right now, it just makes sense for Music to just be for music. Hopefully this is already addressed in iOS 6.

    Another thing is iBooks. Right now its organized into Books and PDFs. Wouldn't it be better to organize with Books, Textbooks, Audiobooks, and PDFs? There all pretty different and it makes sense for audiobooks to belong in your book collection.

    Also nitpicking here, but anyone else want video recordings to be in the video app instead of the photos app? So now its Movies, TV Shows, and Video Recordings.

    One more thing, the App Store. The top charts are basically every app or game and it would be nice if you could toggle one off so you can just see apps, just games, or both. Especially in the free section, half of the top free chart are free-to-play games.

    If that isn't viable, just add a Game Store in Game Center to view just games. This could replace the Recommendations in it.

    Just like a little better organization in iOS.

    Agreed with all of the above. Hope to see all if not just some of the improvements in the final release.

    With the books issue, can't you make your own collections? I swear I was able to do this on the previous iOS version. I made a separate collection for a series that had multiple books, certain PDF's that dealt with the same topic, etc.

    Oh and make sure you submit a feedback to Apple for your request.

    From what I've read, Ping will be dropped soon.

    You'll probably see Audiobooks fused with the Podcast app in a near future. Eventually music will be just that, music :)

    Yea you can, Books and PDFs are the default collections but I'm not even sure you have to use those (you might though). You can definitely create new ones though.

    I also agree entirely about the AppStore. In fact I wish they would finally make an AppStore App but it looks like since they refreshed it and did it the same as before that we won't be getting that.
