    I've only been using an ipad for a month now and the UI is getting to me. I'm jailbroken and have infinidock, board, folders and and it's always a search for apps. Second the fact that I have to double click choose an app and then do that again if I go back there should just be a way to peak or something. Apple nees to seperate ios for phone and tablets, it's a waste of all that screen area just to have spaced out icons.

    After seeing the honeycomb demo I was somewhat impressed I prefer that style of UI or better yet the playbook from rim was to the best. Apple has to know this year is the year of tablets so lets hope they get in front again with new design. Another thing important to me is that my tablet be made out of aluminum or some other really strong brushed feeling. Apple seems to be the only one to do that these days.

    I would like to see Apple stray away from the Itouch UI for ipad 2 or future updates. However, its extremely unlikely.

    I think that the iPad iOS & UI is shackled by it's iPod/iPhone heritage.

    The iPad needs an OS with a lower "footprint" than the Mac OS and a touch UI there's no doubt about that, but whether the iPod/iPhone OS a good place to start is open to debate.

    I assume that iOS aware of which platform it is being hosted on and already adjusts certain aspects of it's behaviour accordingly.

    I think that iPad needs more differentiation in the iOS behavior compared to the iPad and iPhone than is the case at the moment.

    The most obvious example that I can think of is the need for a common file system and file manager. The concept of closed file storage for each app doesn't work for the iPad. Most of us have to use a mixture of utility apps to fill the gaps but still don't achieve 100% success.

    Basically the iOS interface is a launcher for installed programs....i would like to be able to install widgets on the springnoard....ex. A weather, stock, and wifi widget....so i dont have to launch each one individually.

    The concept of "closed file storage" works extremely well for the iPad, it just doesn't work well for you! The iPad is a consumer-oriented consumption device made for consuming "stuff" (music, movies, apps, etc.) from iTunes. Its when you start working outside of this is when you run into these "weaknesses".
