OK, we did this in this forum before iOS 5 was released, now that it has been, and we've had a chance to play around awhile, what could be made better?
Please don't use this thread for venting on what you don't like about iOS 5, unless of course you have a suggestion for improving it. Think of this as a place to generate ideas to share with the iPad OS Development team in the hopes they listen and then act on them. Thanks!
Here's something I found in using iCal;
1. In generating an appointment in iCal for say going to the Apple Store on Saturday to meet with a Genius member to help with iOS 5 install on an iPod. I set the appointment time and date and noticed there was a place for "Location". So, I go online and find the address of the store and type it in the field. Wouldn't it be cool if there was an option to A. pull locations from the Contacts app for those locations I had stored there already or B. Push the typed location to the Contacts App for future reference? After all, who doesn't need the address to their nearest Apple Retail Store once in awhile?
2. Then, what if, at the time of the Alarm going off at the time you were to leave the house, the location was something "clickable" that would then open Maps and highlight the location, or even better, the route from your GPS location to that location? That would be slick IMO. And finally,
3. What if, when making that appointment, there was an option to Set A Reminder For This Appointment? This is not an Alarm, but a Reminder. Thinking back to that Genius appointment on Saturday, my plan is to Friday night to install iOS 5 on my iPod. I only need the appointment if it fails to load (as it always has for me), but if it doesn't fail, I can cancel Saturday's appointment Friday night from their website. If this was an option carried out by a check in the box, once you saved the appointment, it would then open Reminders, set it for 24 hours in advance or something, but make it so it can be modified, and you then fill in the rest of the fields. Or, you don't check the box and iCal just goes back to its main screen when finished.
Anyone else see and value here?
