What If iPhone OS Had: Cover Flow Multitasking and Springboard Expose

Share:

The beauty of the iPhone is that with each revision of the OS, the features and user experience gets better each time. At first we had firmware 1.x, 2.x and now up to 3.x (3.1.2 to be exact). What’s next for iPhone users when iPhone OS 4.0 drops? We can expect 4.0 firmware to drop possibly next Spring.

Until that point comes, the current 3.x firmware has a lot of places where it can grow. For starters, the lockscreen could be utilized more to show calendar events, missed calls, etc. Of course, if you have a jailbroken iPhone there are alternatives to make this dream a reality (think: SmartScreen and Intelliscreen).

What If iPhone OS Had The Following…

Anyways, the folks at Ocean Observations have come up with two concepts to answer the age old question of “What if iPhone OS Had…” To answer this question, they came up with features such as “Cover Flow Multitasking” and “Springboard Expose”. Watch the following YouTube videos to see these concepts in action:

Cover Flow Multitasking

Springboard Expose

Both concepts do seem like they could be usable features that would be widely appreciated by the iPhone community. However, until Apple announces what they have in store for iPhone OS 4.0, we’ll have to keep waiting and guessing.

What features would you like to see when OS 4.0 comes in the future?

  • I like the idea of coverflow multitasking but the expose seems flaky.

  • tazCorp

    Video calls! and maybe new iphone with front camera and bigger screen! Hehehehehe

  • Sylanel

    I do believe that the “coverflow based multitasking” is a great feature idea that should definitely be sent to Apple via their feedback email portal. I would definitely vouch for that!

  • Dusty

    New hardware, so basically new iPhone model LOL I agree! I too would like to see front camera and a OLED screen 🙂 Maybe well see the front camera in the 2012 model…

    As for bigger screen… Check out the rumored iTablet, the concept seems badass!

  • Dusty

    These concepts are wicked and I do recall some developers have already created a few springboard add-ons which are still not released for certain reasons…

    Coverflow multitasking looks incredible. I wonder if someone could create this for jailbroken iPhones, using Backgrounder, somehow?

  • ifokust

    How about the ability to delete call history ONE BY ONE? I've wanted this feature from the 1990's since the first iPhone.

    MobileExposé is real! I just reveiwed it over at Green Candy. It works from an icon, rather than the home button, it this video. It is very smooth.
