New Apple iPhone OS 4.0 Wishlist: New features please

Yesterday the iPhone OS 3.0 upgrade went live, and the guys over at pcworld spend some time playing with the new Apple OS, and have come up with a type of wish list for the next generation iPhone OS, iPhone OS 4.0.

Firstly there is photos and the ability to share via MobileMe and email, but what about other image sharing outlets such as Flickr. Then there is photo editing, in iPhone 4.0 there is a need for some basic photo editing tools with something like swipe to undo, hit a button to crop, and maybe pinch to select.

While iPhone OS 3.0 delivers notifications and is a step in the right direction how about true background notifications like the Palm Pre in iPhone 4.0?

Spotlight in iPhone OS 3.0 is great at locating contact and applications quickly, so how about iPhone 4.0 expanding that idea to the web. The Palm Pre already does this enabling a user to search via Twitter, Wikipedia, Google and Google Maps.

Next, iPhone OS 4.0 needs to deliver more Swipe gestures, gestures which could delete voice mails on the fly via the visual voicemail system or remove entries from the user’s recents list, a small thing but it would be an improvement.

And how about the addition of the Terrain View in Google Maps, there’s no support for this in iPhone OS 3.0 so how about placing it in iPhone 4.0.

Next, iPhone 4.0 needs to bring customised wallpaper to the iPhone home screen enabling that special image you’ve captured to stay on the home screen rather than having to constantly put up with black while your image is shown briefly on the slide to unlock screen.

iPhone OS 4.0 also needs to bring a unified file browser for browsing downloaded files and images and the like and then accessing those files on your iPhone. Then there is email, the ability to be able to check all your email in a unified inbox all at once would be an added bonus.

So there are just a few wishes for the next iPhone OS, what would you wish for?
