Apple

Since my contract renewal was up, I had the option to renew it and buy a new phone alongside with it. Since I have an unofficial policy of never buying into the same platform twice in a row, and because it has been a long time since I bought something from Cupertino, I decided to go with the newest iPhone, the 5S. I'm planning on a more thorough review sometime later this year after more thorough use, but here are a few short first impressions.

This seems like the simplest thing for apple to fix too. It has to be easier than the multitasking ability they've added. I'm trying to find the logic behind leaving this out. Maybe they think that their apps are the best and letting a user choose their own would ruin the "experience"?

Bingo. Lest we forget, at one time Apple banned any app that duplicated an Apple provided feature. Its quite archaic now,but I'm sure a lot of the underpinnings of the os are based on that assumption.
