This.The ability to view two apps side by side. I don't need a full multi-window desktop experience, I don't need true multitasking with a dozen apps running, I just want to be able to read things in one app and write notes about it in another without switching back and forth.
And this too.The biggest thing i would like to see is an easier way to share files between apps. Something like a central documents folder.
1) Id like to see my call log synced directly to iCloud, or ability to have missed call notifications sent to an email address
If I forget to take my phone with me/lose it on way to work at least I can then keep an eye on who's been calling me and return their calls from landline or other mobile phone.
There's apps to do that on android but non on iOS, if that's down to the security restrictions imposed on third party developers on iOS thats fair enough, but in that case maybe Apple could look at filling those sort of gaps themselves.
2) Location based reminders I'd like to see some sort of scheduling ability.
e.g. 'Remind me to pick up stamps if I'm near the post office on a saturday between 9am and 5pm'
'Remind me to book in at work if I arrive there between 7am and 9am and repeat that Mon to Fri'.
In above examples I don't need reminded to pick up stamps if I'm near the post office at 1am as its going to be closed (and I know I'm not going to be anywhere near it Mon to Fri), Likewise I don't need reminded to book in at work after 9am (if I'm not there by 9am I'm not going to be in the office that day)
Would cut down on need for reminders to constantly be firing up location services 24/7 (instead they can be scheduled to come on at 7am and off again at 9 etc) which might aid battery life.
Hallelujah.MySpace integration! I'm joking. Including Facebook integration next to Twitter while giving users the ability to turn it off in settings. I, personally, get sick of seeing "tweet" in every sharing option because I'm not really a Twitter user.
More widget options.
I'd love a "Sleep mode" for when I'm working nights where most calls will be ignored, but if certain numbers (ie, my parents) call they'll get a message asking if the phone call is important than being able to press one or something to ring through."Ringer only"/night mode (calls only) for iPhone would be nice.
Yes!A clock icon that shows the real time. A weather icon that shows the real weather.
The Calendar icon has shown the real date since iOS 1.0.0, so I know it's possible.
That's be awesome. Siri, post this picture to Facebook.I'd like to see Siri able to do stuff in third party apps. Like tweet in tweetbot without opening the app
Definitely.Call filtering.Why should I pay AT&T to have that luxury when the device itself can ignore the call?
App communication & turn-by-turn directions would be cool. So would Siri integration.I also like the side by side editing mentioned, and the app communication. I think turn by turn navigation is desperately needed. So many good ideas here I'm drooling over the possibilities in the future of iOS.
Maybe Apple could make the lock screen image the camera slider (though I like it the way it is) and put a button in the bottom-right that, when tapped, takes you to the list of apps you have allowed access to without entering your passcode or password. Or, Apple could change the camera slider so that instead of opening the Camera app it opens the said list of apps. In the meantime, someone could make a jailbreak tweak that does the job.I'll add mine now. Would love to see the ability to select apps that can override the lock. Let me use things like SoundHound without having to type in my password, but don't you dare reveal my e-mail without my password.
As I see it, this would be more useful if you didn't know in advance which songs you wanted to play at a party. If you did, you'd probably assemble a playlist before the party.I'd also like the ability to add songs to a "now playing" queue of sorts so I can specifically choose to play songs in an order without adding a new playlist. It'd be helpful for parties (much like iTunes' party shuffle) and handy just if you wanted to choose your next song while listening to previous song.
May I add that Android has a cool homescreen layout. That deserves to be on the iPhone.One thing I have never understood is why weather app always shows sunny and 23 degrees, likewise the clock showing 10:15. When will apple make these update automatically for the iphone? Especially the clock. They do it for the calender! Also the youtube app icon looks out of place and silly.
Can't see that so much with the iPhone, but definitely needed on the iPad.User accounts, with (optional) login screen!
My mom has a Touchpad and I love "throwing" things off the screen.The multitasking on the webOS was far superior to the iOS method. I wish Apple would copy it:
i.e. You push the home button, live cards of each app show up, you can swipe up (throw away) to close an app, or swipe left and right to see what else is running. It's almost like switching tabs in Safari, but better (no X button needed) It seems very clean and Apple-ish.
This is the main thing. If I have a dozen apps that take the place of websites Huff Po, NFL, Facebook-whatever, etc, etc, I want the system to be able to see the url and say, oh, the user has marked that domain or doc-type for app-Z, so we should open it in that by default, just the way the App Store or iTunes pops up on certain links, or the way the YouTube app does/used to do that. It would be like a simplified variation on the old "InternetConfig" application from the classic Mac OS days. Only apps that are aware of this feature would work with it (there would be switches somewhere in the Settings app). With so many apps available on the store, this is a no-brainer. Mainly, I want to use my preferred web browser to open links, instead of Safari.- App interoperability
Android does this pretty well, and so does Mac OSX. It's the ability for apps to talk to each other directly. An app should be able to exchange data with another app in a way that is seamless. When I open a webpage, I can share to Twitter since it's baked in, but if I had Facebook installed then it should also appear in a 'Services' type of menu panel when I share.
This pleaseI'd like to see more share to or share this options everywhere. For instance, to share a contact you have to go into contacts but it sends it as an iMessage anyway. Why cant I go into iMessage and hit the camera icon and choose contact instead of photo. Same for your current location. Same with mail. We need an attach file type function.
Alternatively I want share to options to be more prevalent. Why is the only sharing options on YouTube either email or tweet. I want to hit the share button in YouTube and get the same options everywhere, email, tweet, message, etc. Same with safari. I can tweet a webpage but I can't one click send it via iMessage to a friend. I know there is copy paste but meh. I don't want to have to generate a new email message just to copy the YouTube link form it, switch to messages, and send it. Yuck.
They really need a sharing UI that's consistent and then they could make it extensible. Imagine if just installing the Facebook app added sharing via Facebook. Right now apps have to go through this whole sign in and accept the app thing to get that functionality when it could be built in. You add a photo sharing app like instagram and boom, now when you click share on photos instagram is an option.
Also I'd like to see Messages turned into something more like iMessage for the mac is. Add aim, gtalk, etc and then I can uninstall at least 3 competing messaging apps.
