Review of iPhone3.0 Update: Apple Adds the Essentials, Nothing Exciting

text steve jobs Pardon my tardy review on the iPhone 3.0 update, but thanks to Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) and AT&T's slow 3G Network, I was unable to install the new software yesterday.

  • Copy and Paste: Adding this function greatly improves the browsing and emailing experience for each user. This is an essential function for any smartphone, and was long overdue.
  • Widescreen texting: Palm Pre slideout keyboards are the new rage, but now that the iPhone's touchscreen version is available in wide format, I'll avoid many of the frustrating typos and send messages much faster.itunes shake shuffle
  • Shake to Shuffle iTunes:With the time devoted for research and development of this feature, Apple could have utilized that time and energy on revolutionary tool.
  • Voice recorder: An app that's long overdue and was available in the store before it became a standard feature.

Overall, Apple doesn't appear to be breaking any new ground within its research department, but at least they're providing us a free upgrade to our existing products. What's your take on the iPhone update? Were you satisfied with the improvements, or were you expecting more?
