    I'd like superscript and subscript added to keyboard as I teach science and need this a lot.

    The return of the "multipage tab" in Safari, or at least the option to use multipage. I bought the iPad 2 for my wife who is very visually oriented. The loss of of the multipage tab has really rocked her world.

    Ditto regarding the desired keyboard additions. The multi-direction Delete key would be the best one to add. Heres a few Id like to see:

    - Better native Photo app that actually lets you delete/move images around without iTunes or whatever
    - Easier way to kill running apps or apps that are suspended for us "anal retentive" memory managment nerds
    - Better printing support for existing printers. There is NO reason why the iPad is picky about printer support.

    I agree and want to see this. There are some app you just don't want kids messing around in like emails and notes.

    As I'm not a member of Facebook I wouldn't want to see iOS integrate with it.

    I do however want more customisation. Should be able to move multiple icons at once opposed to just the one. A better camera. Widgets on the lock screen. Perhaps some work on the theme itself. I want folders to look less - ugly..I want to put unlimited items in a folder not restricted to 16. Should have an app store Download manager. It really annoys me when I search for ages on the store and find an app. I then download it and it takes me out of the store. It then takes 10 minutes to get back where I was. I want to be able to be at work and drag and drop files on to it. So I can use it as some sort of external hdd. Bluetooth to be able to see Devices other than just apple. Oh and quite an important one...FLASH!!!

    There's loads more I want just don't have enough time ATM.

    You can actually get 20 apps in a folder and there will never be flash on the iPad as Adobe has now stopped development of it for all mobile devices.

    Agh my mistake. Yeah I did read somewhere that Adobe was going to stop developing flash for mobile devices. Still it is a shame as there is a he'll of a lot of sites out there that work with it.

    My mistake about having 20 apps in a folder instead of16. I still think they should sort that out. Seems strange why they do that. I have 4 games folders on my pad. Would be much more logical for them to be in one place.

    Oh well I'm sure will do this one dat.

    Well, these may actually be more iterative than really worth a new OS version (maybe like an iOS5.2), and app developers/tinkerers should lurk in threads like these for ideas, but ...

    1) Quicker way to turn Bluetooth on or off than going to the Settings. I use a Belkin keyboard folio for my iPad 2 (love it), but don't want the keyboard OR Bluetooth on all the time (to save battery), so I find myself going through the rigamarole more often than I'd like.

    2) For the times I'm not willing to turn the keyboard/Bluetooth on (just a quick text input like a search, for example), a 'Select All' button on the front page of the software keyboard. I've already tapped on the text input field; now I have to tap it again, and wait for the 'Select All' button to pop up, then hit it, then begin typing? Yuck.

    3) As someone else suggested, a quicker way to close apps.

    I would like some more "basic" customization options, such as:
    1. Ability to use different keyboards. Someone already mentioned Swype, but any choice beyond their "one keyboard for all" mentality would be welcome.
    2. Ability to change your default browser. Pretty sure you could do this way back in Windows 3.1 (and possibly before). Why I can't do it in 2012 is beyond me.
    3. Make the email signature option part of the email ACCOUNT, vs the device. This would allow different email signatures for different email accounts. As it is, the email in iOS is basically useless to me as I have a dozen different email accounts all requiring different signatures. This is just basic email functionality that should be added.
    4. Some more screen customization options. I love my Android phone (and customize the living bejeezus out of it), but I'm not suggesting it needs to be that customizable. Just the ability to have the same app show up on multiple screens or move the icons around so maybe some are on the left and some are on the right would be welcome. Quit forcing uniform rows of icons on me!
    5. Being able to have access to the file system from my PC via USB, similar to my phone. Makes copying files around so much easier. I assume that's too "dangerous" for Apple to allow us "dumb" users access to though.
    6. As others mention, ability to password protect apps or set up different profiles for other family members.
