iOS 4 folders and the iPad

The iPad’s getting iOS 4 this fall.  That’s not news in any way, shape, or form, but how Apple plans on implementing it still hold some intrigue for those of us who are curious. Is it going to be a carbon copy of the iPhone version? Will there be things slightly different from the iPhone implementation? We have no idea, but we’d certainly like to see some extra attention given to the iPad release, and Patrick over at Just Another iPad Blog has a similar opinion after spending some time with iOS 4: twelve applications in a group just isn’t enough.

I’ll be the first to admit that this could be one of those journalist-only problems, but I can’t state enough how annoyed I am with having upwards of four gaming folders on my iPhone. The miniturized icons help a lot, but it would go a long way in keeping my phone tidy if only Apple would bump the application number in folders on both the iPhone and iPad. Patrick’s thought on the iPad: “Bigger device, bigger app icons, bigger screen–so bigger folders should work well I reckon.” We agree, and hopefully Apple’s going to do something about it between now and release.

So what do you think? Should Apple give us more applications in our folders on the iPad? What about on the iPhone? I personally wouldn’t mind seeing it increased for both devices.
