Apple’s iOS isn’t exactly a cutesy operating system. Steve Jobs and co set out to make the iPhone, iPod and iPad OS as usable as possible without adding unnecessary bells and whistles. In the main part they succeeded, but it’s hard to deny that there are a couple of areas where it could do with that personal touch – something to make the whole experience feel a little more like home.
