The Orange View (on hiatus) Because Apple is great but it isn't perfect


Nailed it

Daringfireball's John Gruber, in speculating about iOS 5 improvements, hits on my number one gripe about iOS 4. The basic set up on having screen after screen filled with identically-sized icons doesn't work very well if you use a lot of apps.

I don’t dislike iOS 4’s folder feature, per se. I create folders to stash away apps I seldom use but definitely want to keep. But folders haven’t solved the fundamental problem that it’s a frustrating fiddly painstaking process to organize even just a few dozen apps. I can’t help but wish for a homescreen revamp that’s designed from the ground up for a platform where users have dozens of apps installed, and are adding new ones all the time.

If Apple really changed this and offered something more like Android, it might be time to switch back.
