iPad Springboard Breaks Spatiality

Latest post from Lukas Mathis:

“Let’s say you want to open the App Store on your iPad, and you know that you’ve put this icon at the bottom right of your apps. Turning the iPad shuffles the positions of your icons. The App Store now suddenly jumps to the middle of the second row.

While rewrapping is fine for text, it’s not okay for things the user has intentionally arranged in a specific way. Instead, Apple should make sure that the arrangement is preserved. Since there is so much space between individual applications, this could possibly be achieved without shrinking the actual icons, simply by moving them closer to each other.”


An interesting point.
