While the iPhone 3GS has a number of improvements, the game-changer is video capture and distribution. While other handsets have some video capability, the iPhone version is already becoming the de facto standard for mobile video capture—and with good reason.
Albert Einstein was once asked how many feet are in a mile. He answered, “I don’t know. Why should I fill my head with things like that when I could look them up in any reference book in two minutes?” Like Einstein, I’d rather not keep everything in my head either. Unlike Einstein, I don’t have to look it up in a book—I’ve got an iPhone in my pocket!

Shape Writer Lite: This app adds an alternate text entry method to your device. You use Shape Writer’s keyboard to enter text, but instead of tapping on letters, you draw a line on the screen connecting the letters you want to enter. An algorithm inside the app interprets the shape of the line and its location on the screen, and turns it into a word. It is unfortunate that you can only use Shape Writer to enter text into its notepad. However, with OS 3.0 you can cut text from Shape Writer and paste it into other iPhone apps.
Enter the name of your favorite band and the app will create a “radio station” that plays music from the band you selected or from bands that play similar music. And the best part? You never have to listen to a yappy disc jockey again.
One of my favorites, Evernote is available for the iPhone as well as Mac and PC desktops. You can write and save notes on any computer, sync them, and access them anywhere. You can even integrate photos into the notes.
