* Emoji icons, which should be welcome over in Japan
* New language support
* Support for Google street view and Google transit information
* The ability to download podcasts wirelessly
* New App Store features such as easier navigation, and better previews of applications via screenshot

Turning off autocorrect is sweet but wireless podcasts is amazing despite the low maximum size

What a brilliant app... just discovered iFooty as well. Is not the iPhone the greatest piece of personal tech EVER!!?

Sure, the phone is good hardware but the way it integrates with the App store in iTunes is just genius. True end-to-end thinking from Apple.

Huzzah. I have finally acquired an iPhone.

I have been following comments on this thread over the last few months and recall seeing a number of lovely tips on how to make best use of it.

Rather than go all the way back through the thread, please can someone summarise the principlal points for me in one post?

Ta.

I didnt get to choose it. When I added the mail account it took it upon itself to add the password that I use with my work email. As soon as I take it off (the email account) it goes and I can choose a 4 digit code.

Two reasons.

First, they offer very little insulation from wind - so on windy days expect to hear lots of bloody wind.

Second, the multifuction (next track, previous track) is so unbearably slow and hit and miss as to be a nightmare

LOL

good review.

Quite expensive for what they are.

Might have a peak in the states for a decent pair.

They won't fit HTC mobile phones

My IPhone Application recommendations:

Essential

1. Airsharing

Allows you to connect your IPhone to your computer and view/modify contents of folders. Requires a WiFi connection.

2. Fring

Skype on the IPhone. Skype chat works anywhere (i.e. Edge or 3g), but Skype calls only work with WiFi. Nevertheless it's a must have application if you frequesntly use Skype (which I do with relatives abroad). Oh yes - it also enables msn chat etc.

3. WunderRadio

This turns your IPhone into a portable, fully functional, WiFi radio. OK, it doesn't work with 'Listen again' and it crashes occasionally, but this is one brilliant application. Most importantly, it works with all the BBC stations.

Would hate to be without ...

1. Labyrinth.

An absolutely amazing game - now featured on the IPhone adverts. Try the free 'lite' edition to see what I mean.

2. TV Plus.

If you have Sky, then you will appreciate this. You can look at the TV Listings for up to a week ahead - and send a remote record request to your Sky + box. Works perfectly.

3. iFooty

Set Crystal Palace as your Team, and you can receive live (and pretty immediate) text commentary on Palace games from the BBC - as well as latest news etc.

4. Facebook

If you have a Facebook account (and who doesn't these days) this is a very good application. You can do almost everything that you are able to do when logged in via your PC.

5. Trace

A free game (but for how much longer?) Very clever and highly challenging. Makes the best use of the 'touch' facility. Great fun.

6. Voice Notes

Use your IPhone as a voice recorder.

7. Hanoi

I love this application. It's the old game 'towers of Hanoi'. A free application that will keep you entertained for ages.

8. Stitcher

Personalised Audio - delivered. Choose from a long list of podcasts and listen to them when you are out and about.

Swanny32 14-11-2008 10:13 AM

Lads, hoping you can assist me with a slight problem i seem to be having at the moment.

Up until yesterday my phone was working as sweet as you like, little bit slow now and then but it worked. All of a sudden I am unable to access the store, facebook and the internet in general. I have full network coverage but the small circular dot that appears next to the service provider has disappeared.

Can anyone help as it's driving me nuts

Do a hard reset, Home and power button at the same time for about 20 seconds.
If not, then Im guessing local issue..try with your wifi

Swanny32 14-11-2008 11:04 AM

Just done a hard reset, hope it doesn't erase my data!

Swanny32 14-11-2008 11:19 AM

It appeared briefly when it turned itself back on but then disappeared again, any more ideas?

Works fine on Wifi as i was using it last night but problem is I don't have access to Wifi at the moment
