    Finally :rolleyes:

    It seems we will be able to disable the annoying new feature of having to look at ugly faces whenever double-tapping the home button. :apple:

    Good job....but did you just call all of your friends and family ugly?

    I think that Recents feature should be a 'Phone app widget' for notification centre... makes more sense.

    Hopefully it changes, it looks out of place and feels like a bad jailbreak tweak.

    That's not a bug.

    They closed like hundreds of my bug reports and marked them as a duplicate. But nothing did ever change. Don't get your hopes high.

    I use non-Apple software to talk to my friends and family. They are not the ugly ones. SMS and Email I mostly have from people I do not really keep in touch with. Since Apple has not opened the API to allow other software update contact relevance, for me this feature is useless.

    ----------

    Well, I wasn't clear. My bug report was closed as a duplicate of another. Now I see the other is closed. So yeah, hopefully, it is closed as "fixed", not as "by design".

    There's nothing to fix though, because it's an intended feature.

    You can submit enhancement and new feature requests with the bug reporter, they could well have added the ability to switch off or something

    Perfect, exactly what I (and many others) wanted.

    I too hope that they add the ability to disable the feature.

    It's a nice one that I'm sure a lot of people can use but almost all my communication with people is through texting or FaceTime/Skype on my computer. If I'm doing a voice call or emailing then chances are they probably aren't in my contacts unless they're my mom, making the "Recents" kind of pointless, and I don't do "Favorite" contacts, so I don't really need that in my multitasking view.

    Seems like it might not be that quite if the original "bug" was in fact resolved as "fixed" (meaning something was done to addess it).

    It's a bug reporter, not a feedback submission form...of course they labeled it as "fixed."

    Meaning what? If they do something to address it they would mark it as fixed. If they don't do anything there are other options to select, such as won't fix, by design, etc. Since fixed was the one chosen that means something was done to address/change the behavior that relates to what was reported.

    Hopefully this ugly pile of silliness doesn't make it to the final version without an off switch.

    No, you can submit feature requests and enhancements through bugreport.apple.com. There's a category for it.

    Yeah, but they're not really fixing it, they're merely amending the intended design based on one's suggestion.

    Yeah I know, but it's mainly a bug reporter. Why do they have a feedback site where you can suggest new features and such? Seems kind of redundant, eh?

    This is the first thing I'm going to look for when my iPhone and iPad finish installing beta 3.
