I've been waiting for NetNewsWire for iPhone since I first heard of it, and have already registered Twitterrific Premium, which is very slick (although I'm not sure how GPS or photos work). I am somewhat disappointed that NNW/iPhone doesn't proactively download updates; that's one of the nice things about NNW on the Mac -- it's always pretty current, and I never have to wait for an update. On the iPhone, where I may not even be able to get an update on the train, it's problematic. I was hoping NNW/iPhone would proactively sync feeds, so I could use it on the subway while out of coverage, but no joy.

Twice, all apps have failed to launch until I rebooted, and I've had a couple unexpected reboots.

Most apps are very slick, although AIM and iMaze both disappoint. Very much looking forward to using Remote for real, and wondering if I should have gotten an Apple TV for our living room stereo instead of an AirPort Express/n...

There's a trick to replacing the 4 persistent apps in the Dock at the bottom: you cannot drag into the Dock to bump them out of the way; instead you must drag something out of the Dock to make room first, and then you can drag an app into the free space.

It's annoying that deleting an app from the iPhone leaves it on the Mac; moreso that re-synching re-installs the app on the iPhone and forces a full (slow) backup of the iPhone. Adding insult to injury, I cannot control-click an app in iTunes to re-install it, or get rid of the confirmation on every deletion from iTunes.

The AIM client stinks. Not sure if it's push enabled, but it has serious flaws and bugs, both.

Moving apps around Springboard is a bit buggy. As I moved them from one screen to another, Springboard moved a bunch of extra apps to later screens -- many more than were actually necessary to make room. I always have 7 screens of apps, even when they all fit on 6. Under 1.1.4, there were no empty screens -- empty ones were automatically removed; I preferred that behavior.

I expect to get an iPhone 3G Monday -- can't do it this weekend.

Where's the OpenSSH port?!?! I do hope Apple didn't reject a submission...


Update 2008/07/12: The extra screen is correct. When in app rearrangement mode, the iPhone always provides an extra screen so I can move apps there; in normal mode the extra screen goes away.
