But once again, iOS has stopped me. For instance, I want to copy a FLAC file to my phone and play it. On my Android phone that's a drag and drop operation. On the iPhone, however, the native iTunes can't handle FLAC, and so I can't use iTunes to transfer the file to my iPhone. I could use a third-party app, but I'd still have to use iTunes. It's too much of a pain.
So I want to arrange the locations of my app icons on my Home screens. On Android, I can do this. But using iOS, I can do no better than to limit the amount of icons on each screen in order to show some free space. And I can choose which icons are on which screen, but I can only change their order, not where they are actually displayed. And the big icons still look awfully Windows 3.1 to me.
I want to buy a new Kindle book. On Android, I can do that from within the Kindle app. On the iPhone, I have to open up a web browser session at Amazon, buy the book there, then load it on to my iPhone using the app. What a non-elegant operation. Pisses me off.
Apple, it's time to join the 21st century. Oh, I'll probably keep using my iPad; Android just doesn't have what I need there yet. But phone-wise, do the following, and I'll consider returning:
1. Let me drag and drop music and video files onto the phone from my computer, and not just from a Mac.
2. Reduce the size of the damn app icons and let me arrange them how I want. It's a beautiful phone, let me keep it beautiful-looking!
3. Let me buy stuff in the apps I want to use. Preventing it makes you guys look like idiots.
