    I like the new search, but for whatever reason I am always hitting the home button even when I am at the homepage already. I like to be at that screen when I unlock my phone, so I have a habit of hitting home before I put the phone in sleep mode. So now with 3.0, I am always getting the search screen when I don't want it.

    Anyway, my idea is to change it so you swipe either up or down to bring up the search screen, then you can do it from any screen, not just the home screen. So that is my suggestion of the day for Apple.

    well you might want to stop doing that...:p

    although i personally dont want to flick up or down to access search i prefer to actually press the home button either once or twice (twice if not on home screen) but apple are a bit restrictive on some options for not only iPhone but MacOS.

    you might actually be able to submit that idea to apple though, some where. dont know where though:rolleyes:

    Why not set the double home button to go to home instead of seach?

    It doesn't really matter if it takes you to search instead of your homescreen before you lock it considering that when you unlock it will be on the homescreen even if search was up before the lock

    Maybe just swipe right-left at the lock screen instead of left-right? An up-down slider on the lock screen would not look aesthetically pleasing.
