So far there is no other customization of the double touching Home button. Had there been any other as well, it would be nice.

Of course, it may change in the future and Apple may bring some more customizations. However, as of now, you would have to live with this only.

Just like this, there are so many other features which have been introduced with the latest iOS 8. Despite being the great utility, they may not be convenient all the time. Take for example, Share My Location.

Although it is quite good as it keeps your loved ones or the people who matter to you informed regarding your whereabouts, it may turn out to be a privacy issue sometimes. So the thing is, no matter how useful something is, it may not be liked by everyone else.
