Apple John Gruber illustrates the dangers of not having a clue about history: "The utter simplicity of the iOS home screen is Apple's innovation. It's the simplest, most obvious 'system' ever designed." Thanks for playing.

Kind of defeats the claim of simplicity.

I agree with you completely. I've never heard anyone refer to the iOS homescreen as anything other than simple & easy to understand. I know someone with a 3 year old who navigates the screens to find her Zoodles game, the camera, and the photo library no problem. Additionally I know a few elderly people who are just about the opposite of tech-savvy that seem to manage just fine as well. I would expect otherwise if the UI was anything but simple.
