anyone else hate this crap?! the iphone 4 looks nice and elegant and is definitely a step forward, but ios4's interface is a step backwards and made the iphone interface about 14 times more boring!

exhibit A



step it up apple! im sure the can make a simple user friendly ui that is at the same time creative and not boring!

You do realize that folders are an OPTION right?
If you don't like how they look and are gonna complain, don't use them.

CategoriesSB for jailbroken phones is a much better implementation of folders. Cool wallpaper btw.

+1, I disliked the folders from the beginning, 12 icon limit is wack. The free version of categories sucks, but categoriesSB is worth it.

i do realize its an option, i dont even use it. my iphone is jailbroken and i use categories, which is way better. but supposedly the paid version is even better? hmmm?

anyways im complaining about apple's implentation of folders, they couldve easily included folder icons like like in categories but instead they decided that smaller icons within icons would look the best.. wtf?! it bugs the crap outta me when i think about how they came up with that! was this the "revolutionary new user interface" that was rumored before the iphone 4 came out??

btw thats not my wallpaper or my phone, i just googled that image.

p.s. theres a thread somewhere here titled "show ur creative ios 4 user interface" or something.. then all u see are cool wallpapers with a bunch of little icons within regular sized icons on their screens, i just kept shaking my head. oh thank GOD for jailbraking! i wouldve switched over to andro... nAHHHH!

But the real question is why you need a folder for 4 Twitter apps.

:p

So pages upon pages of apps is a better way to organize your iPhone? I love folders.

i never said that, but they were supposed to make it better and by better i mean better functionality at the same time more creative.
they failed on the creative part.

Actually why does this person even need 4 twitter apps period.


These days people seem to whine about anything they can.
Take it back if it bugs you that much, move on.

Even better if you dont like the way Apple does things come up with something better yourself.
