This concept video showing possible ways Apple could improve iTunes when it comes to managing iPhone apps has been doing the rounds on the web for the past couple of days. Although, to our knowledge, the poster is in no way affiliated with Apple, the video provides some excellent, Apple-esque solutions to the currently poor app screen in iTunes.
While it’s still a hot topic, the iPhone Kung Fu team thought they’d throw their suggestions for app management into the mix. Feel free to let us know what you would like to see changed too.
1. Category sorting
Arrange applications like you do music and movies in iTunes by order of size and category, maybe even Cover Flow.
2. An end to upgrade mess
When you update an application or even sync new ones, your original Home Screen layout isn’t preserved. The result is an ugly mess and time wasted dragging apps to their proper place.
3. Home Screen folders
Drag and drop applications into folders you can name. One folder for games, one for social networking apps and so on.
4. Multiple direction Home Screens
At the moment you can swipe left and right but why not up and down too? That would provide the option to reach one of four screens in one swipe.
