    Here's a video that shows what the iPhone would be like with the Apple Watch home screen. Pretty cool what this developer did.

    I saw this earlier today. In my opinion, it would be ugly as hell on an iPhone.

    Absolutely no way I'd want that UI on an iPhone..

    it's cool from a technical/creative perspective, but the usability would be awful. I'm still not even convinced it's going to be that great on a watch.

    I agree. I just thought it was cool how a developer created that for an iPhone. How easy it would be to use and organize is another issue all together. I still think Apple needs to do a make over on the home screen. Not much has changed since the inception in 2007.

    I personally can't wait for the year 2025 when we could finally place the icons wherever we want on the screen.

    Well in 7 years we haven't seen much change in the home screen, so I'm guessing we won't for another 14

    It was a nice idea for a video, but I could not enjoy a home screen that chaotic. IMO, Might be best in theory but not in practice.

    I'd rather see nested folders where we could nest more than one nested folder per folder. There's a JB tweak that does that.

    I used a jailbreak tweak to have the apple watch UI on my 6+. It was difficult to get on with at first but after using it for a week or two I learnt where everything was and I really enjoyed the layout.
