Dear AAPL Make Your Stuff More Functional, Before You Force Your Skeuomorphic Fetish On Us

Hey AAPL, you're on version 6 of your mobile OS already. 

And you still CANNOT create/edit Contact Groups natively on iOS. 

You need to log-on to (on a normal browser, mobile browser is just a landing page) to create / edit Contacts groups.

Meanwhile, Contacts on OSX has Smart Groups (similar to iTunes Smart Playlists) very useful but they don't sync to your iOS device via iCloud.

AAPL should STOP or LESSEN this skeumorphism bullshit and enable Contact groups creation and editing natively on iOS. Also they should enable Smart Contact Group sync to iOS.

In short make things more useful before you make them look like real world things (skeuomorphism)

Tips & Tricks|Orientation Aware Backgrounds

I just wanted to share some stuff I learned over at xda-dev's forum today.
Anyway as the title states this is about today themes and Orientation Aware Backgrounds. It's really quite simple
All you need is 2 images [3 if you want to change the Start Menu image as well] of the proper resolution.
tdywater_320_240.gif [Landscape Image] = 320 x 240 image
tdywater_240_320.gif [Portrait Image] = 240 x 320 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 190 x 290 image
tdywater_640_480.gif [Landscape Image] = 640 x 480 image
tdywater_480_640.gif [Portrait Image] = 480 x 640 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 399 x 586 image
What you do is copy the files to \Windows directory and viola! Orientation Aware Backgrounds!
Notes: The theme's default images will be used once you switch themes. So you would need to copy the files back again to \Windows dir for it to work again, what I do is I have placed Wallpaper sets in ZIP files on my Storage Card so I can change and change as desired.…
