    I think the title says it all.
    What kind of fixes/tweaks/improvements/etc... would you like to see in the next OS update?

    First off, for us AT&T users, lets hope that they surprise us with enabling MMS.
    As far as improvements/fixes:
    - Theres some lag when initially switching over to "Spotlight", but after the first flip over, you can flip back and forth freely.
    - Don't know if theres just an overload on apples servers or what, but the app store has been super slow ever since I put 3.0 on. Takes forever for it to check for updates, and to search through the store.
    - Battery life seems to have gotten worse for me. I used to only have to charge it every night, but lately I've had to charge it once sometime through the day.
    - And of course, making it more snappier is always welcome.


    Perhaps even future releases:
    - I would like the ability to reply back to a text without having to leave the app that I am in. I often click close when I get a text because if I close what I am doing, I would lose stuff. And in return, since when you click close it acts like you read it, when I leave the app or get sidetracked, I forget someone had texted me.
    So I propose a modified version of the text app, with the ability to reply back and send without leaving what you were already doing.


    What are the bug fixes you need addressed...?
    Or minor tweaks you'd like to see...?

    I'd like to be able to charge the phone using the dock. I like to set it there and use the remote app while I'm doing stuff on my desktop, & it was something the 2G did without a hitch.

    MMS won't be released in an app update, just a carrier file update. The files for MMS are already included in 3.0, it just needs a valid carrier file.

    Personally, I would like to see stability increase, more text message alerts (custom even?), and better notification handling. If any of those actually happen, I will have died and gone to heaven.

    You can do this!
    Just go to your photo album, select that arrow button on the bottom left, then click multiple photos and "share".

    I'd like to see a custom springboard. Something like you can get on a jailbroken phone.

    The 3GS will not charge on a dock? Or 3.0 does not allow dock charging?

    I just returned a Palm Pre, had it for 3 weeks. Apple should really consider buying Palm. webOS integrated into the iPhone platform would be killer.

    What I would like to see and what I'm guessing we'll see are both different.

    What I want is notifications like the Pre.

    What I'm going to get is bug fixes (ie. 3rd party apps changing to other icons)

    I remember this happening back with the 2G.

    Apple likes to make money, Palm doubled it's losses last quater (pre pre though). I read somewhere someone suggesting Dell buy them, which makes sense.

    Deeeeaaaarrrr Santa.....

    1.) Wireless Sync with iTunes (via wifi or bluetooth)
    2.) Bluetooth Keyboard support for the iGo Stowaway keyboard.
    3.) VNC-like access of (to) the iPhone from the desktop.
    4.) iTunes management of iPhone icon layout.
    5.) Ability to Sync MobileMe to Outlook that's on an Exchange Server.
    6.) iDisk access from the iPhone
    7.) True Notes syncing
    8.) Ability to manage MobileMe pictures from the iPhone. (Windows users can't publish with iPhoto ya know...)
    9.) Instant SMS reply without having to leave your application.
    10.) Fast BT and Wifi toggling similar to the Jailbreak capability by swiping the status bar at the top of the screen.

    I think it's the 3G S that doesn't allow it, because my 2G (updated with 3.0) still charges fine on its dock.

    Here's what I'd honestly like to see:

    I synch my iPhone with my Macbook and my Dell using MobileMe. Works like a champ, but I wish I could synch Windows Live Contacts and Windows Live Mail on Windows instead of just Outlook and such. I wonder if that is a relevant to the thread... but I'd still like to see it.

    i'd be happy if we could choose our own email alert. even if it was only the options that they have for sms. something, i cant hardly hear the alert now. i would also like to have the email alert repeat like the sms do. and an email preview would be cool too.

    I know when my iPhone was jailbroken, the weather app displayed the current temp. That would be cool to see in the future.

    There are many reasons they don't do both of your requests.

    They don't have the email alert loud, because many iPhone users are business users. And most either have multiple email accounts on their phone, or receive 100s of emails a day. Having a loud tone go off everytime an email is pushed or fetched, would be very annoying. And that goes the same with an email repeat alert.
    Having said that though, it wouldn't hurt for them to give us the options to choose it. Seems Apple doesn't give us enough options for many things.

    I heard that in the earlier OS's when you clicked 'close' on a text, it would just close the window, and keep the 'unread' text badge. This is the way I'd prefer it, until they create a "quick text" mode that allows you to text back in an app, without closing what you were doing. They decided to get rid of that, and make it appear read if you click close. I wish they would give us the option, not just assume this is how everyone wants it.

    "Show message as read when closed is tapped - ON/OFF"

    Something like that.

    Actually, better yet, they should have a little "x" in the top right corner of the message. Click close to act like you've read it, hit the little "x" to ignore for now and view it later.

    Competely agree.
    The calendar shows the day and date, why not have the weather app display the current temp. They could ask you which city to make as default.

    Same thing with the Stocks app. Whatever stock you love could automatically update on the Springboard. Nifty idea. Just thought of that one.
