Do you think that the iPhone should have a secondary button next to the homebutton that would act as a menu for whatever app your using. Like the blackberry menu button

Personally, I like only having one button. I come from WinMo land where there were plenty of buttons abound, but I found that I really didn't use all of them.

I would like to have a secondary button on the side to launch a favorite application with a press of the button which could also double as the shutter button when taking pictures. I hate having to take pictures of myself with a friend while trying to guess where the on-screen shutter button is.

Hey! THAT'S IT! I was thinking about that the other day!

I'm good with one button. I like it that way.

Chances increase of a button messing up with more buttons. If I have 100 chances at making a half court shot, chances are I'm making at least one. If I have 1 chance, less like to make it.

Move the existing home button to the lower side and introduce a second button on the opposite lower side with options for intended use. Further I think it would be cool if the buttons were flush to the phone, like the sim holder.

If there was a second button I second this option otherwise I like just the home button. I had a BB Storm for a couple days and it was so confusing using that damn thing using the button for menu options. The only thing I worry about is since the home button is used to do so much it will wear out over time.

Great idea and with voice control that would be awesome.

I like the idea of more buttons because it really opens up the iPhone OS to more possibilities. A spaces button, a recent app button, a favourite app button, etc... but I don't know how to elegantly impliment those things. :(

Extra Button

My vote is for a "back" button.

When I am in an app such ad email or crossward and I wish to look something up on the browser I want to be able to do so without closing the app.

I would like a camera button especially one with two presses to help focus then take the picture. A second button could definitely free up more screen space. I would want two more buttons but its not gonna happen.
