The iOS home screen is pretty terrible. Very difficult to move apps around. Hasn’t been updated much since very early versions. I much prefer Android’s home screen options.

@cdevroe I agree. It’s been one of the harder things to get used to after switching back to an iPhone.

@cdevroe That’s what I’ve done as well. The “Misc” folder in the bottom right is getting pretty full.…

@mikehaynes @cdevroe There’s some low hanging fruit Apple could easily grab before they even approach the complex side of things with Android.

Even with my Pixel I hate that I’m forced to use the two Google widgets since the gesture navigation isn’t yet available for custom launchers on my model. It’s enough fragmentation ______ that I’m more than willing to go without widgets and whatever when I go back to iPhone. However, I’d be happiest if Apple could just introduce the app drawer and thus make it possible to keep whatever apps we want on the home screen.

@simonwoods I would love if they adopted the app drawer.
