I resisted the urge to get an iPhone for a while after they came out because I never thought that I would use any of the features. It took only days for me to become a serious addict and now I don’t know what I would do without it. Despite my addiction there are still a few iPhone apps that I think they should create.
Travel Apps that Don’t Need the Internet
So you’re overseas with your iPhone and you have it in airplane mode so that you have it in your pocket as a little guidebook and it works great, until you need the internet that is! So many overseas travel apps seem to require access to the internet to work properly its crazy! I refuse to pay the data charges for overseas travel since they are astronomically expensive. They make my 99 cent app more expensive than it ever should be.
Document Editor or Word Processor
I can’t believe that there is no way to edit documents on the iPhone. I don’t often find myself writing on it but when do have to it is usually because there’s a very good reason for it. I have to pay real money for “word processing” software even though the phone already has the functionality for typing and formatting emails is very frustrating. Please, even a simple one would suffice!
A Better Calendar
I know that Google is a major competitor of Apple at this point, but I would still like to see the Gmail calendar integrate with the iPhone calendar. These days I barely use either calendar because I always forget to put things on both, so I put them on neither and trust to luck. It doesn’t always work out and a proper calendar would help me keep a few extra appointments.
Basic Photo Editing Functions
I love the ability to take, text and email photos but sometimes I don’t take a great shot and need to crop a little out to make the subject look reasonable (or passable). A few little tweaks for photos including cropping and brightness and contrast adjustment would be nice to make those photos legible.
Increased WiFi Options
It would be great to have a few more options for controlling WiFi networks, like the ability to join once and then not automatically join every time a network of the same name pops up. I’d also like the wifi to know to join networks I have specified but stop popping up with a whole bunch of new networks when I’m out of the house. If I want to join one, I’ll look.
Lock Screen Photo Slide Show
This would be a nice idea – instead of having a background on your lock screen then you could have a slideshow of your photos, or maybe a selection of your photos. You can keep those embarrassing ones private.
