New in iOS 5: Twitter integration + Reminders


Apple today demonstrated the new Twitter integration features and Reminders app of iOS 5 as part of its WWDC keynote address. The software’s Twitter integration will allow users to sign in once and then tweet directly from all Twitter-enabled apps, which include Photos, Camera, Safari, YouTube, and Maps; new APIs will allow third-party developers to take advantage of the feature, as well. Reminders is a new app that helps users manage tasks, offering features that include creating and grouping related tasks together and setting time or location-based reminder alerts, letting the device remind the user when a certain deadline approaches or when the arrive at or depart a location. iOS 5 will be available this fall.

Twitter: DO. NOT. WANT.

Reminders: So, it only took Apple 5 iterations of iOS to offer sync’ing of To-Do’s (at all) and Notes (properly). Sheesh. And after so many App developers developed their own 3rd-party solutions, too. Nice knowin’ ya, ToodleDo and MyLists.

Is that top picture the app’s “Logo”?  That is soooooo Clip-Art awful.  What is wrong with the people designing Apple’s icons later?  It’s starting to look like pixel-art made in ResEdit.

And when the iClouds is down, will there be a thunderbolt or rain coming from it?  It’d be a nice way to let people know the system is down…..  If it’s anything like MobileMe, that cloud will be raining a lot.

iOS 5 Reminders is a simple todo list with missing basic features, no search field to narrow down the list, no filters, …. Anyway, this is a good news and will clean a crowded marketplace. But for todo list with advanced and powerful features we will have to wait for Apple some major updates. Take a look at an app like todogenius (on iphone) and you will see the creativity of developers is far ahead what propose apple.
