    So I made a new video on how I see the future on mobile devices. Since the iPhone is arguably the most popular device with the most popular interface I wanted to know y'alls thoughts and reaction on this concept.

    It is really short so let me know what you think! Would love to hear from you guys! Thanks!

    It's a good idea, reminds me a bit of HTC's friend stream which aggregates all your social interfaces in one widget.

    Seems alright, but I would feel flooded with all that information at once. The concept is simple, and I feel that's the only way it would work well. Unfortunately, though, people do more than certain commands on their smartphones. I have several tabs open at once in my web browser, music playing, and text conversations going all the time. If you conceptualize everything as just personally relevant information, then can't you also conceptualize current interfaces with apps being filters for that information? For example, Rdio is my music filter, Facebook is my social news filter, Flipboard is my political/technology news filter, etc. Instead of deluging users with all their updated information, a la Blinkfeed, iOS and Android give them more control and with apps to manage all that content and perform other functions like editing PDFs, tuning a guitar, read a book, search or review a restaurant, etc. Apps are often utilities, and the way you suggest seems to forget that a little.

    Really not sure how this concept differs the iOS pull-done status bar except it can't be hidden. Also I don't understand how the filter is any different than a search, which again can be done in iOS. Presumably the same is true for Android.

    Could you optimise it so it came carved in stone instead ;)
