I have spent an evening with the updated operating system for my first generation iPhone. I must say that I really like it and I wonder why they couldn’t have done some of these things from the get go.
I can’t tell you how many times in the last year and a half I have turned the phone sideways on email trying to get slightly larger font to read and the bigger key board. Now that it is here, what can you say except: ahhhhhhh! finally.
cut and paste seems to work pretty well. that ought to help with the mobile blogging, but not much of that going on anyway, so not that big a thing. I hear that the twitterers among us are very excited about it though. Maybe now that it is possible, I will find it more useful than I think, but there have been very few times that I have wanted to be able to copy text on my phone.
I love stock charts and I am glad there is more information available on the built in stocks application. again, though, this is something that should have been available a long time ago.
I still want to upgrade to the 3G S for the better camera, increased storage, and video. But that will have to wait for funds to aggregate. In the meantime, this OS upgrade is very much appreciated.
