Apple has quietly released new firmware for the iPhone and iPhone 3G today. The new revision, 2.2 has minor bug fixes to improve stability and add new updated features to current built in applications. The official list of updates are:
According to a recent J.D. Powers study, the iPhone tops the smartphone list with the highest overall customer satisfaction among business users.
The Apple iPhone was scored at 778 on a 1,000 point scale and received high marks in the categories for physical design, ease of use and handset features. Following behind the iPhone by 25 points is BlackBerry, which has been the celebrated smartphone amongst business users for years now.
Google voice actuated search is out. Finally. Its pretty good. Works just like in the promo film. A few tips though, make sure you speak clearly and slowly. Do not blur your words together.
Another tip, say ‘Maps …. Berkeley’ to get maps up. When you click on the first return, it will give you the option to take that search to google maps. There is a search ‘maps’ option, but it does not take you to maps. Bummer.
Due to what I imagined must be the enormous computing power required, I didn't think I'd see the day very soon when one of my favorite Applications, Google Earth, would see the light of day on the iPhone.
How wrong I was. The wizards at Google have done it again and the results are nothing less than spectacular!
Bloomberg Mobile is a free app for the iPhone and iPod Touch bringing you financial information from the world's most trusted source for financial information. This is the only application that I use every day on my iPhone.
Since we carry our iPhones (and sometimes iPods) with us no matter where we go, why not carry a few documents as well? I choose three application that are useful for using your iPhone as a remote storage device. If there is one I missed that offers unique functionality, please let me know.
