I use an iPhone and when Ubuntu One syncs my photos it creates a directory on my computer called 'Pictures - muffin' in the home directory (muffin being the name of my iPhone). My home directory looks something like this

Desktop Documents Downloads Pictures 'Pictures - muffin' Music Audiobooks

It's weird and annoying that Pictures appears twice in my home directory. I would rather 'Pictures - muffin' directory just be called 'Muffin', but it does not let me, it just removes the photo syncing option I would preferably like it inside the directory 'Pictures' as well if that's possible.

What's the question? Do you want to rename you iPhone name? – jaorizabal Feb 4 '12 at 2:44
So in short, you want to redefine where Ubuntu One syncs your data to? that is to say, so that your iphone pictures show up in Pictures/Muffin or wherever on your system? – Thomas Ward Feb 4 '12 at 2:54
Thomas Ward: that is exactly what I want. – Dillon Gilmore Feb 4 '12 at 3:20

We have implemented changing upload directory on Android. To my knowledge, this hasn't been explicitly planned for iOS (nor it was for Android ;)), but should be fairly easy for our devs to squeeze in. I will let them know about this feature request.
