    I am amazed that the following 2 key simple features are not possible on ios:

    1) to highlight a portion of an imessage. Sometimes I only want to copy one line from a long message. I know the work-around to paste in Notes etc.. but this should be possible!

    2) I cannot copy a calendar entry to another date without moving the original entry. (I mean a once-off repeat - not a regular occurring event


    I submitted feedback to apple in 2010 re this!!

    How about the simple ability to put icons where you want (say the bottom of the screen), even if the screen has open space? :confused:

    iOS still has a lot of work to go. That's why there's jailbreak ;)

    Can't believe that's not in iOS already since the screen has small width.

    Dynamic text reflow would make for a much better user experience.

    Not being able to arrange the icons wherever you want on the screen is mind blowing to me...really Apple?

    Not being able to view the phone as mass storage and only the pics ? Lol wtf

    And worst of all, the iPad doesn't have an LPT-Port. I mean WTF??!:eek:

    No Aero, no Trashcan, no Defrag, no Minesweeper preinstalled, no Kernel-Compiling possible, no Manpages (how am I supposed to know the parameters of all those apps?) :confused:

    Minesweeper would be awesome. I'm sure MS Paint would be included as well,right?

    My biggest pet peeve with iOS is the broken search messages feature.

    Whenever I'm looking for a specific text/iMessage containing a key word, all it does is point me to the whole conversation, I end up endlessly scrolling to find it. It's a pretty useless search feature.

    I was hoping they'd finally fix it in iOS7. :cool:

    No SMS quick reply.
    No system wide access to work files rather than crappy open in.

    I'd settle for the first option, I know there's more chance of me winning the lottery than Apple caving in on the second option (I don't even do the lottery).

    hold the message and copy, paste it into the text box at the bottom and select what you want to copy. i know its not ideal but its a really simple workaround without leaving the messages app

    The ability to remove yourself or remove someone from group messages. So many times someone adds me to a random group chat and my phone goes off for hours.

    That is actually the main reason I am still using ios and not android. I simply could not get used to the text reflow, I tried and it just drove me crazy. Did you by chance start on android and then move to ios?

    One thing that drives me nuts is that when I create a new photo album and move a photo there, I cant then delete it from my camera roll or it deletes the one in the new album too :rolleyes:

    The iPhone 5/5S/5C screen is 16:9. Same as most Android phones. While it may be oddly tall compared to a 3G/3GS/4/4S/Original iPhone, it's the same as most other current smartphones, so not odd at all.
