Ten improvements we'd like to see in OS X

Macworld Staff | April 26, 2013
As part of last year's surprise release of Mountain Lion, Apple promised that it would begin delivering yearly updates to Mac OS X, much as it has to iOS in recent years.

Contact our calendars

It's hardly a stretch to describe many of the recent "improvements" to Apple's Contacts and Calendar apps as cosmetic. After all, Lion gave us rich Corinthian leather and the equally skeuomorphic book design of Contacts. But neither of these additions did much to change the underlying functionality of the apps. I want smarter contacts, like the ability to manage contact information from multiple sources more easily, not just a prettier wrapping. As for calendars, why can't our computers be more intelligent about managing our time, instead of barraging us with boxes, labels, and the same calendar input pane we've had since time immemorial? Third-party apps like Fantastical have shown us the way; now it's up to Apple to push things forward again.--Dan Moren
