Apple is not going to throw out their entire ecosystem to make a few geeks happy.
And, btw, it's not lagging in features when Apple chooses not to include a feature. That's like saying a Corvette is lagging a Ford F-150 because the Corvette doesn't have a trailer hitch that will tow 4,000 pounds. That's not what the Corvette is for. Similarly, the Ford F-150 isn't going to win many races.
Every feature I listed is from a normal OS for normal people, not geeks. It seems like that is the go to response every time I mention that I want a filemanager. Every feature I listed is also available for OSX so why can't I have them on iOS. Oh and I belong here to, I paid my dues, I have a Macbook, a couple of Minis, a iMac and a iPad. You can't be that obtuse. Can you seriously tell me that you wouldn't like these features to, it's only a dream list. I know Apple want's to lock people into the world of iTunes, I get it. Just dreaming here.
Please, stop with the car analogy's too, save it for the person who doesn't have over 1600 posts. I know how things works here. I mention things I would like to have and then I get shot down for being the minority, people don't need things like a filemanger or MiniSD, or being able to mount the device as a normal drive. Those are pro features are something like that. I don't know about you but I've been on a lot of tech calls and it is a lot easier trying to explain to someone how to transfer files to a Android tablet then it is to a iPad.
It's, yea just plug it in and copy over files after the system mounts it vs. okay yea, first what you need to do is install iTunes, okay great, now we need to setup your user. Oh you already have iTunes and a user setup on your computer but the iPad has you're husbands user in it and you want to copy your files from your computer over to your husbands iPad. F*ck where's the gun.
Yes I fully realize there are lots of solutions for every scenario but you know what Android is still the most user friendly every time because it's open and doesn't care if you bought your music from their store or copied it off a CD. Sorry, that is just the way it is.
I still love my iPad though for music creation and I wouldn't give it up for the world but please don't tell me what I need and don't need or the things I want is for pro users. It's just the basics that I had on my MAC SE, well except for the whole codec thing.
