iPhone OS 4.0: Big Productivity Benefits
May 26, 2010 by Phil Montero
I love my iPod Touch! I got it over a year and a half ago and it is still my favorite piece of technology (along with my Flip video camera).
In fact, it’s probably one of the main reasons for me planning to switch from a PC to a Mac soon. I don’t have to troubleshoot it, almost never reboot it, it doesn’t get hung up or give me dll errors – the damn thing just works – and it’s FUN!
When they released the 3.0 OS upgrade for it last year I was really stoked for a few of the features – but mostly for the copy and paste. That was a huge productivity booster. Well this summer I have OS 4.0 to look forward too and once again there will be some big time savers. Here is a look at some of the main new features:
This time around I think it’s the folders to group my apps into that will bring me the biggest boost. I download lots of apps to test (which I’ll be reviewing soon here on the blog) and tons of games for my son. The quick search they introduced in 3.0 made finding things a lot easier – but being able to group related apps together will be sweet! Also the new multitasking looks great but I will have to see how it’s implemented.
Are you an iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad user? What are you most looking forward to in the new OS or what features/functions do you wish Apple would add? Post a comment below and let me know.
