    Regarding drag and drop, depending on the project or what I'm doing, I use it. A lot.

    Yes. And it drives me nuts when an app doesn't support it, like Photos.

    The point is to let people know there are great product ideas and to inspire Apple or sometimes kick its ass when it thinks they are still innovator in the industry.

    It's sad that some random designer can come up with better solutions than a huge company like Apple that has $250 billion in cash. This isn't perfect but it's way better than what we've got. I really hope they have a new iPad Pro with an overhauled iPad Pro version of iOS at WWDC. It needs to be able to do a lot of the same things a Mac can do, but in a different, touch-optimized way.

    What would you rather that space be used for? Quick access to my apps makes sense to me, do we really want to be spending much time on the springboard?

    That drag and drop functionality concept is pretty cool but the graphic designer in me wants some gridded layouts to choose from for greater variety. Otherwise this is all about functionality, missing a designer's touch.

    Let is boot OS X and Windows 10. Add a keyboard/trackpad accessory. Problems solved.

    I have been an Apple fan for a long time but I am very cynical these days !

    If Apple doesn't deliver something like this (or better), I'm just gonna have to sell this thing.

    Apple's iOS looks so stale and boring that even changing the toggles from rounded to square will seem courageous.

    Everyone is over Apple. Well, at least the people on Apple-centric forums.

    Everyone is frustrated, upset, mad etc.

    I miss the old days when there wasn't much competition so Apple was truly the top dog. Now everything they do is scrutinized on this forum.

    People's passion turned from positivity into negativity.

    You keep using that word, I do not think it means what you think it means.

    Those who have owned Apple products for decades may be more inclined to be negative.

    Yes, the competition has also raised their game. There was a time when many companies could care less about design, aesthetics and user experience.

    Smartphone OSs are mature and they will not change that much going forward. Tablets, on the other hand, have a long way to go towards a multi-user and multi-window environment since they are starting to approach the performance of laptops.

    Oh how my poor Air 2 would struggle with this. The 9.7 Pro wouldn't fare so well either. Anyone who says 2gb is sufficient is full of it.

    The iPad urgently needs one thing: A Finder app.

    No they don't. I was working with a game developer and you would be surprised what does NOT make its way into the final product from the drawing board. Features are getting axed many times, and rarely it's the designers fault. I am pretty sure Apple software designers are one of the best ones out there, so this is not the problem. It's more about "Does this feature make money potentially, as in "We need more AI stuff" because that's where the money's at for investors right now.

    I love the idea of the iPad but I will sadly not buy another after my iPad Air unless Apple really do something about its usability. Make it productive! It's got the potential to be more than a media consumption device.

    Guys keep dreaming, it's been 6-7 years and Apple still can't optimize icon grid spacing to take advantage of the huge iPad screen. Apple is asleep.
