iOS is a great mobile OS. But for all the plaudits it receives, it has some shortcomings in certain areas. Sweden based design agency Color Monkey produced the below video that outlines 4 enhancements they would like to introduce in iOS.
1. Widgets On Home Screen – This dashboard like feature would add weather, iTunes control, and calandear widgets to your home screens.
2. Settings Shortcuts – One of my own personal frustrations is the annoyance in accessing common settings. Some settings are 4 level deeps and being able to add a shortcut to those settings on my home screen would be a very welcome addition to iOS.
3. Notifications – iOS doesn’t do notifications very well. Color Monkey would like to see the introduction of discrete notifications that is accessible by double clicking the home button.
4. Favorite Friends – Favorite Friends would let you add shortcuts to your favorite contacts directly on your home screen. Clicking their avatar would bring up their contact details and put you within one click of contacting them.
What do you think of Color Monkey’s suggestions?
