What’s still missing?  iPhone 2.2 update wish list

“PleaseFixTheiPhone.com” began soliciting suggestions 12 days ago and has already generated more than 270,000 responses,” Phillip Elmer-Dewitt reports or Fortune.

Comparing that list to Wired’s “8 Things to Expect in the Next iPhone Update,” Elmer-Dewitt writes.

Elmer-Dewitt writes, “Note that not one of the iPhone’s new features appears on the user-generated list. In fact, you have scroll down to No. 18 — “Walking directions,” a new Google Maps feature — to find anything that matches.”

  1. Look, you can’t please everybody. I’m sure Apple will implement some of those features at some point, but the list on that website is really really nitpicky. Apple will plod along and put in the features that will add the most value from a company perspective. I’m willing to bet they don’t give a rats ass about ANY of the things on that website at all.

  2. I use each page as a folder… One page for news, one for IT/Mac related, one for games, one for racing, etc…

    I would like to be able to sort and organize things in iTunes and not have it wiped out each time I update or add an app.

  3. your “wish list” is clearly aimed at consumer users and not enterprise clients. There are three major omissions and only one is on your wish list: cut/copy/paste, SEARCH, and ability to invite others to appointment. Everything on the Wired.com list and your wish-list are all “nice to have” and will be welcome features, but they should tackle the basics first.

  4. Am I really the only one who has MMS on the top of their list? Or how about custom text message alert sounds? I suppose the fact that no one wants this is a good sign that it will be in the next feature update. ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”wink” style=”border:0;” />

  5. I don’t think WiFi iTunes syncing should be on the list – about as useless as the same feature on the Zune.

    What should be there that others have mentioned in the past is:
    • Notes syncing to the Mac
    • File syncing to the Mac
    • Word/Excel/Pages/Numbers editing (edit text only)
    • PowerPoint/Keynote displaying with zoom

    I was just talking about that too. My idea is either have a folder you click on.. such as games.. apps…media..etc and it sends to a hidden page with those apps in it. This would reduce the amount of pages you have on the phone and possibly allow some setting to password lock the folders. Another was to make a folder on the dock just like a folder in the OS X dock. You hold down on the icon and a menu pops up of whats in it. Just some ideas someone probably already has one of these folder ideas on a jail broke phone.

    @John
    I agree the copy paste cut search would all be a good idea but I think MMS is also a major one that is needed. We have some users here in the shipping department with blackberrys that need to take pics of things especially if stuff gets damaged. Makes it easier to pull out the phone and send it off than to take a pic, upload it, then email. Its obvious apple can do it… why they dont is way beyond me.. plus it will get all those annoying people to shut up about saying the iphone is subpar because it cant copy paste and mms which the very basic phones can do…well mms anyways

  7. I agree with Steve516

    Apple fixed the issue with App updates rearranging the icons when they released 2.1. Before that it was really frustrating. It will be nice if they do that to all icon locations after a reset as well. When i restore my phone from backup, I have to spend time to re-arrange everything again. It can’t be difficult to store the icon location in the backup.
