I think it's safe to say that people don't want to drag their finger around their screen and then look around their fat finger to select an app to use. They simply just want to tap it like they would any other button in the real world. How would you then select it? Is it selected when you release your finger, do you have to hold your finger over it longer to get to open, or do you have to release and then quickly re-tap it as retains its magnification? How would you then un-choose something so it doesn't launch the app; move your finger to the empty "desktop"? I don't get this at all. The way Apple design their UI actions is the reason it's a success, the reason why it's vaulted above all others, the reason everyone else has copied it, and the reason why the anti-Apple trolls scour Apple forums, not in spite of. They didn't use Mac OS X because they couldn't
, they didn't use it because they shouldn't
Once again, making assumptions out of a comment regarding changing a UI that has been unchanged for 6 years. You don't make any mention to my comment about using the iPads screen real-estate to improve any aspect of the UI. For someone who can sit behind a computer and be a cynical wise ass with your over 6,000 random forum posts is really an achievement all on its on. But back to the debate. You seem like a semi intelligent individual, rather then attacking a simple comment, why not think outside the box. Lets argue you run your finger along the bottom where your current dock is located (not all your apps, which I never stated). They magnify, hence resolving the problem your "fat fingers". Again, probably from polishing off bags of Cheetos and typing so many posts. Then doing a simple gesture of flicking the app up, opening the app. Lets then take it another step and do a double tap of your home button, rather then bring up your nifty Fast App Switching feature, it will impose the app in a suspended state, almost as if it is floating on the "desktop" (think Palm WebOS), where at that point you can flick the opened app up again, closing the app. Swiping left or right shows you more apps or a widget screen.
What I'm doing here is thinking, brainstorming and envisioning of other ways iOS can be ran. What you do is act all tough behind your Cheetos crumb colored keyboard and make generalized statements because you aren't keen enough to think outside the box of Apple. And again, you don't have to get anything. Because in all honesty, you probably never will. Apple didn't "vault" over anyone or anything. They were the first on the block and have held the gold medal since day one. There lies the problem, no competition. Which brings us to this argument. They didn't use Mac OS X, very good little one, but at what point did I say they should have or asked why they didn't?
Finally, if you're throwing an "anti-Apple troll" comment my way, I'll repeat myself from earlier, calm yourself. While standing next to my iPod Hi-Fi (which you weren't even a member of this site when it was introduced) along with all my other gear, you have nothing to stand on with that argument.
I've been a member longer then you, this being myyyy 43 post? Maybe. If you get off at trolling these sites to make yourself feel important and try to attack the seemingly weak (TheKid2020 with only 40 something posts over 5 years), then you sir are a loser.
