In this episode, we begin making a wish list for iOS 8. First up: Problems that we experience as users. We share tales of woe connected to the keyboard, autocorrect, music player, and Siri. Then we take a broad look at some rough edges that were never rounded over in iOS 7 on the iPad, and a few changes that were new to iOS 7: Control Center, Notification Center, and borderless buttons. Next, we change gears and consider what we’d like to see changed in iOS 8 from the perspective of a business owner. We talk about the changes that we’d like to see in the App Store, the possibility of opening up Touch ID to third party developers, and inter-app communication.
