Why do people say iOS needs big update and better multitasking and file system?

After reading many posts here people keep saying iOS needs better multitasking and file system.

And people saying the android map and 3D map of buildings is way better than iOS .

Why all the hate of iOS here?

Why all the hate the iPad 3 does not have iOS 6 and does not support siri.

May be the iPad 4 will have iOS 6 and siri.

I like iOs since it just works and my original iPad functions like the day I got it, I love iOs :)

Why do you label it "Hate"?

How about "constructive criticism" where backed up by reason? Or some other appropriate label?

Maybe not in this case - but often Apple fan's take any sort of criticism as a personal attack.

The items you listed are valid BTW. If you've been used to them on other smartphone os's then why not want them on iOS too, quite possibly?

I think there are very few people who hate iOS here, but wish it have the features they want. Many of them being the more 'open' sort of features that we can assume that if they're not in iOS by now, they're never going to be in (filesystem/multitasking/themes/Siri for all iOS 5 devices).

Why? Because this forum is where fanatics hang out. The millions of typical customers could care less about what people here complain about.

Can you elaborate on what you mean by want filesystem /multitasking / themes/Siri .

They are pretty self explanatory if you ask me. Some (but not all) users would like to see iOS have the filesystem available to the user, real multitasking, to be able to theme or change the look of the GUI and have Siri on iOS5 capable devices (not just the 4S), without Jailbreaking.

What is so hard to understand about that? Because there isn't much to elaborate on.

By filesystem you mean a file manager or files of different type like doc , txt , wmv so on ?

I think most people just want to be able to share files between apps. So for example you could create a document in pages, then upload it through Safari. Or you could download/transfer a PDF and view it in any app you like.

Texas, unfortunately.
iOS, as an operating system, is sorta simple and boring and lame. That's my gripe with it.
This is my problem. It's hardly ever confusing to use as a benefit (which I suppose is why people like it) but there's no innovation. It's all dumbed down as much as possible, I feel so limited with what I can do with it. And that's something I think a lot of people would agree with. Yes, less bells and whistles means nothing will likely have a problem, but the user experience suffers because of it.

Be careful saying that here you get flamed here saying that kind of stuff.

Okay I think I understand what he is trying to say.

Well, you can only view one app at a time full screened on the iPad. Not exactly great multitasking is it? iCloud with its document sharing is bringing some sort of file system at least.

May be the iPad 4 will have iOS 6 and siri.
Well, I was really surprised Apple didn't put Siri on the new iPad.

I don't hate iOS, but doesn't mean I think it's perfect either.

You can only work on one app at time . Even with desktop or laptop I cannot be sending e-mail and in Microsoft word :( it is not physically possible. Like I cannot be on phone talking to some one and sending e-mail or reading a book.

With desktop or laptop you can have two apps or more open but one is in the background.You cannot have two open apps open at the same time .

The OS can multitask easy meaning I can be downloading things of the internet and well it is downloading I can be in Microsoft word doing my work.:eek::eek: Or I can be playing music and in Microsoft word or running a anti-virus scan and be in Microsoft word .

I could be downloading things of the internet and well it is downloading I can be playing a game !! Yes most OS are multitasking where the CPU the OS can do more than one thing at a time. But a human cannot do moe than one thing at a time !!! I can have desktop computing running windows 7 with IE open and Microsoft word open and again both open but you are switching between them if you are copying and pasting.

At my work computer we have windows 7 and I have Microsoft word running , 3 or 4 IE running , Microsoft excel running !! But only working on one at time . I will use the taskbar to switch the apps I have open.

Even if I minimize all the open windows it just make small little boxes hard to read and only one will be in front. I guess a 50 '' monitor this would not be a problem.

That is why windows have a taskbar do to most people like to run apps full screen and use the taskbar to switch apps they have open.But most OS today are multitasking well beyond human capabilities.

Um, how about having a Safari window open with a webpage of information while you type in a Word document?

My point is you can't display more than one application at once in iOS on the iPad.

Maybe you aren't a user who multitasks within applications on the Mac. You sound like you probably just use Word, Safari and iTunes. Those of us who do multitask will often be working with between 2-5 applications at once, and being able to see those applications all at once is very useful for workflow.

I think it may be a bit hard to have 2 or 3 windows open in iPhone or iPad do to the screen is small. May be that is why apple is not giving you that feature.
