Random Monday morning thought here. I was re-arranging a few apps / home screens on my iPad a little while ago, and it occurred to me that I really miss the ability to consolidate screens through the use of folders – which of course I can do on my iPhone 4 because it runs iOS 4.
iOS 4 is not due to hit the iPad until ‘this Fall’ and I am already feeling impatient to have it. While thinking about folders though, I did think that I’d like to see bigger folders on the iPad, that can hold more than the measly 12 apps allowed on the iPhone.
Bigger device, bigger app icons, bigger screen – so bigger folders should work well I reckon. Allowing us something like 24 apps per folder would work much better I think – as most of us have at least a couple of folder categories (Games, News, Books are just 3 quick examples for me) that just don’t fit within a single folder if 12 is the limit.
What do you all think? Would you be in favor of bigger folders if Steve asked us all to phone in our votes on this? What other modifications would you like to see in iOS 4 when it comes to the iPad?
