If you observe from the home screen, you just see a circle during the download and the circle fills while the app is being installed.

But if you observe in the App Store, there's a circle and dot animation illustrating the download progress.



...If you aren't aware of how much capacity remains on your iOS device, it will display a message when storage is nearly full.

That seems to be sufficient for most purposes.

I've seen it. The app gets darker and "pie chart" fills up on the icon.

But where is the app among all the other apps? I’d have to go hunt it down. I find it easier to search for apps I use infrequently

Matt,

Not sure why you're asking "where is the app among all the other apps?" as if this is an Apple issue. By default, if it's an app that is new, it'll be placed in the next available space on a screen. If it's an update, it'll display in the same location. Despite that, it's on you to know where an app has been placed on the screens of the phone, not on Apple.

It's in Settings. Scroll down to General. Then scroll down to First World Problems. About half way down.

Yeah, I think thats an oversight on Apple's part. Desktops don't have this problem.

Matt,

Nope. No oversight or issue on the part of Apple. It’s an issue because you’re making it one.

It's an issue that looks to be addressed in iOS 14.

One of the things that Apple has been lazy about, possibly harkening back to Jobs not wanting native apps or an App Store, is the organization of apps.

The methods provided so far are (DANCE, icons! and iTunes) are poor half measures.

And in further Apple fashion, I don't know haw much control we'll have in Apples next step in organization.






I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.
