It’s all in the detail

I updated my iPhone to the latest software version (v2.2) the other week. Others have been impressed by the Google Street View, directions for walking routes and public transport, location actions (share, add to contact and bookmark) and one button return to your favourite apps but the best thing about this update for me are the podcast related updates.

Yes, that was “updates” – plural. Not only can you download podcasts over wifi but there has also been a subtle change to the listing order: newer ones are at the bottom of the list instead of the list being ordered by date descending. Now this might not make a lot of sense straight away but if you have missed several episodes then you can play them all in order, one after the other.

Unlike others, I am not clamouring for cut and paste. MMS and a fully functional SMS are at the top of my list of missing features.
