    The ability to put an icon anywhere. I wish I could just put my icons in any pattern that I want on the desktop. Gridlock was a great jailbreak tweak. I don't know why Apple didn't pick it up.

    Why? you don't like the choice? You prefer the fill every row one by one option that's forced on to you?

    I guess I like my ducks in a row. Overlapping icons would look like a dogs breakfast.

    Overlapping? This is what gridlock lets you do. Put icons anywhere in the predefined apple grid

    Meh, pretty but seems wasteful. I'm guessing you're a Windows user.

    I'm tired of the auto arranging icons myself. Man that gets old when moving them.

    I wish there was no "Grid" and that apps were hidden, in a style kind of like LaunchPad on OS X. That way in the Dock there could be 4 apps, But with a gesture you can pull up the other apps, in a fashion like OS X...

    You know what's a waste? When a beautiful wallpaper is blocked by a page full of icons. (and no, I dont want to put every icon I have in a folder to open up the view more)

    ----------

    Better yet allowing users the ability to hide icons to apps they never use:

    I dunno,

    newsstand
    stocks
    videos
    compass
    voice memos

    that's my list of useless native apps

    Nahh, with android it isn't a smooth gesture, I believe it's more complicated is it not?

    Kind of, but like LaunchPad, that looks like OS X "Stacks" feature...

    I say yes to that, sometimes a wallpaper needs some space and to look good, sometimes maybe only the middle two, I would be nice just drag it where ever you want with a predefine grid, just like in "Finder" you can put folders or icons the order you want.

    they should invest in new ways of keyboard input

    their keyboard tech is ancient
