RUMOR: Apple prepping new iOS app called ‘Organize’

“iOS 6 will likely feature everything we’ve reported thus far (Siri on iPad, a 3D Apple-based Maps application, and features from OS X Mountain Lion), but there has been one possible feature that we’ve been hearing whispers about, but not full, concrete details like we heard for other features,” Mark Gurman reports for 9to5Mac.

“Apple is working on a new in-house application for iOS called ‘Organize,’ but we’re not sure if Organize will be announced with iOS 6 at WWDC, or if it is a future App Store app from Apple, a future iOS enhancement, or something scrapped all together,” Gurman reports. “The application is said to be a virtual pocket, and the app’s purpose is to be able to replicate a person’s pocket and store things such as coupons, travel information, credit card info and more.”

Gurman reports, “We speculate that Apple will be using the neat camera-based scanning software that we reported to be in development for the scanning in of business cards, receipts, and using that to provide virtual items that get used when shopping and travelling. We can’t help but think that this application will eventually tie into the rumored Apple wallet/NFC service at some point in the future.”

  1. You are such a tease! I read that title and got all excited, thinking that “organize” would be for files strewn willy-nilly all over my MBP hard drive. Sigh . . . . .

  2. What iOS really needs is a native application like Dropbox that all applications can use to store and manipulate documents.

    No more of this storing docs with the applications BS.

  3. Silly me… For a second there I thought they were going to develop a full featured PIM and bring IOS functionality up to par with late 90’s Palm Pilot tech.

    There’s no reason except a lack of desire on Apple’s part to turn iCal and contacts into a competitor to any other PIM or full featured scheduling product like MS Exchange.

    1. Item app like this would use local storage. I’m sure any use of the cloud would be completely optional.

      However, I trust Apple to keep my data safe.

  4. When apple software engineers can figure out that I could add more than one alert to a calendar with out having to leave the ‘set alert’ screen I will get jazzed about an app called organize. Seriously cuppa tea now, sort out the usability on your basic apps – its not rocket science.
