By a similar token, I'd like the option to rotate the homescreen without having to dock it. Basically, I should be able to use every preinstalled app in either landscape or portrait, just like a tablet. 90% of the OS does this, which is why it's jarring when you come across the 10% that's fixed.
I came to Android from webOS after HP shot themselves in the foot several times and one of the things I miss most is the gesture bar you had at the bottom of the screen. With the advent of the soft button area in ICS I see a real option to enable the area to work in a similar fashion.
Improving the multitasking button by allowing nesting could be pretty sweet. For instance, if you have a bunch of gtalk conversations going on, a bunch of browser tabs open, etc. it would be nice to have the option (maybe by tapping a specific part of the card that comes up when pressing the multitasking button) for all the different open conversations or tabs to come up in a card view of their own to make it easier to go right to the one the user wants to go to.
And while I'm thinking of multitasking, I'd like to see one behavior changed. I start on the home screen, use multitasking to switch to App A, then use multitasking to switch to App B, then hit the back button. I'd expect to see App A show up again after hitting the back button, but instead I go straight to the home screen.
- I'd love to have swiping away a text or email mark it as read. And while we're on notifications I don't get why contact pics don't display in the drop-down bar for texts, only for emails.
- Swiping away a recent app actually kills it
- Option to easily switch between the phone & people apps
- Option to mute shutter sound right in camera menu
- Notification bar toggles like in CyanogenMod or AOKP
RED is prohibited by laws of most countries!
Just need quick toggles in notifications bar and a feature that is found in TouchWiz 4 (and CyanogenMod) where you slide your finger across the Notification bar horizontally to control brightness (Better than toggles as when you're under the sun and visibility is ZERO, you don't have to be accurate to adjust brightness by Notification bar sliding as it's always there.. unlike toggles where you have to see which toggle is which)
I'd like to be able to set up folders in the app drawer - or at the very least specify a list of apps to hide from the drawer. You know, when developers of widgets or live wallpapers insist on creating a shortcut in the app drawer; or simply because I don't want to have to navigate past Adobe Flash Settings every time I open the drawer.
Just throwing this out there. You know you can make folders with the home screen icons? If you already know, disregard. I just figured it out earlier this week. Still getting used to my new setup, but it is awesome now. Rarely have to go into app drawer now.
