Editorial : Apple’s iOS 7 Needs Exclusive, Distinctive Features

It’s as if Apple entered a beauty pageant during the talent competition and all the other contestants freaked out and responded by layering on gaudy makeup the way Paula Deen uses Crisco

That’s a unique analogy…

Rather than it being critically important for Apple to remake iOS into something that impresses the reviewers of products, it’s really only necessary for the company to clean things up a bit, a continuation of the efforts it has made on both iOS and Mac OS X over the past decade.

I agree: (housecleaning && !overhaul)

Another core feature Apple is (more) likely to add to iOS is support for ad-hoc sharing, similar to AirDrop on the Mac desktop

This would be a great addition. If you don’t use AirDrop, you are missing out.
