iOS 8 Wishlist
I'd love to see Facebook and Twitter back in Notification Centre.
It made it super easy to update your status without opening the app

Re: iOS 8 Wishlist
Just two simple little items on my iOS 8 wishlist:
1. Password framework
I want Apple to kill off all those godawful password apps once and for all. How? By combining TouchID and its A7+ "secure enclave" with iCloud Keychain to store and distribute passwords, and by allowing certain apps to access a new framework for creating, storing, and retrieving those passwords. I'm sick and tired of the login-to-password-app / copy-paste-username / copy-paste-password ritual.
I want TouchID login to password-protected sites in Safari, TouchID password creation for all email accounts in Mail, and TouchID login to all apps that require passwords. Zero typing to create passwords and zero migration time from one password app to another (because yes, password apps are the kings of user lock-in). The end user would never be aware of the passwords, they'd be very long and unguessable, and they could be generated and stored with just two touches: one tap on the "Yes" button of a "Create password?" action sheet, and a second tap on the TouchID sensor. Accessing secure sites, etc. would be done with a single tap on the "Yes" button of a "Log in to this site?" (or "... app?") action sheet.
Boom. Done. No more password apps. Game changer. Killer feature.
2. EasyPay for general retail
I've used EasyPay at my local Apple Store and I love it. So I think it's time Apple rolled out an EasyPay turnkey system for other retailers. There are what, 500 million iTunes accounts with credit cards? Time to direct all that purchasing power to one or two major retailers as a first step toward disrupting retail as we know it. The proof-of-concept has already been thoroughly tested at Apple Stores. It's ready to be deployed on a wide scale.
Security (shopper): TouchID + "secure enclave" are unhackable.
Security (retailer): Server-side sensor tag deactivation, not on the retail item itself.
Convenience (shopper): No need to flag down a sales clerk or wait in a point-of-sale line.
Convenience (retailer): Instant inventory database updates, clerks not tied down with check-out duty.
Revenue (retailer): Potential higher sales rates without clerk or point-of-sale bottlenecks.
Revenue (Apple): Potential revenue from each sale, a small portion of the retailers' EasyPay sales boost.
That's it. Just two little items on my iOS 8 wishlist.
(Well, OK, maybe not so little.)

Re: iOS 8 Wishlist
1) Notification LED - this is more hardware I guess but I love it and no the flash on the phone doesn't do anything close to a RGB nLED.
2) Better control over NC - simple things like swipe to delete notification instead of double tapping a tiny cross.
3) Better background tasks - iOS7 promised a world where it would magically learn habits and automatically have things read for you when you need it, in truth it needs developer work, its not magically and doesn't really work as it was sold too me.
4) Better Camera app - iOS camera is really nice, but it surely lacking in settings. Phone cameras are getting much more powerful and I really enjoy missing around with settings and think it would be an awesome feature. Maybe hide it behind a setting so it doesn't overwhelm normal users but gives people that actual understand more about camera some of the extra features they might want.
5) Never going to happen but some sort of Swiftkey integration.
6) Again won't happen but I would like to replace the default apps, I use a lot of google services for personal and professional life so it would make my life much easier.

This iOS 8 Concept Shows off Amazing Widget UI and More | TechnoBuffalo
And also, the ability to choose which apps I want as default. Because believe it or not, there are apps out there better than what apple offers and I would much rather be able to choose to use them as default then have to jump through hoops and not have as good of integration as if it was the default app.

Re: iOS 8 Wishlist
Rene's blog post at iOS 8 wish-list: What we'd love to see at WWDC 2014! | iMore has really whetted my appetite for iOS8. I would dearly love if the push notifications, battery shaming, privacy sheets and better inter-app communications were present in the next iteration of the OS.
This one blog post has me more fired up for the new OS that anything else that has come before. I will be glued to my screen at 6pm BST (10am PST) when the Keynote starts on Monday.
