In my opinion, Apple rules the user interface (UI) world.
And for the most part, the UI changes they’ve made in the upcoming iPhone software, iOS4, are major improvements. And since I use a lot of apps, the ability to group applications by type is one of my favorite new features. However, what I think is missing is the ability to select an application icon or category icon to represent the grouping when viewing an unopened folder. While there is a tremendous overall improvement in the speed with which I can find any specific app, the ability to quickly glance and understand photo content without having to read the folder names would be a huge help.
I’ll take this iOS4 UI over the old UI any day. I’m very happy. The video below will help explain why I could be just a little happier. And don’t we all just want to be a little happier?
