    After a few days with 3.0 i've found that most of the apps work quite well.
    At first i tried the "restore from backup" option when setting up 3.0
    This was not a good choice. Consequently, i had issues with:
    - YouTube - would launch, then abruptly crash
    - Voice Memos - would launch and then freeze iPhone, requiring restart
    - Phone - UI would disappear mid-call, freeze iphone, or not let me dial
    - Palringo - would launch, then crash at login
    - Pandora - would not launch
    - EleMints - would not launch
    - iPod - would launch and crash before showing me my library, corrupted my music database
    - Search - results would not appear, would tremendously slow down iPhone
    - Audio - delayed, or none at all
    - Speaker Hiss - speakers would crackle and hiss even when volume was all the way down
    - Keyboard - laggy beyond usability

    After setting my iPhone up as a new device, all of the above problems were either fixed or ameliorated.
    App Compatability/Issues:
    - Photos - once zoomed in you cannot move your picture around
    - Tweetie - some UI lag, lots of lag when taking picture for direct post to twitter
    - Facebook - some UI issues, will not load any pictures
    - Remote - no issues
    - Voice Memos - lag
    - Pandora - no issues
    - Tetris - some lag, works fine
    - Rolando - longer loading time, works fine
    - DDR - some UI issues, does not play music along with arrows (voice commentary is still there which is odd)
    - Ambiance (2) - crashes at splash screen
    - Palringo - no issues
    - Bank of America - some UI issues, won't remember my device
    - EleMints - faster than on 2.2.1!
    - EN-RU Dictionary - crashes upon database initialization
    - WordBook - crashes while searching for word, (5-10s after launching)
    - Translator - no issues
    - Wikipanion - no issues
    - Dictionaire - very laggy
    - Pocket Guitar - no issues
    - Loopt - no issues
    - Urban Spoon - no issues

    overall I'm happy with 3.0, with all the beta-testers, hopefully the next release will be significantly better.
    Please Post Your findings!

    Thanks a lot for this very informative review. I've been wanting to buy one myself but something's just holding me back. After I've read this, it got me thinking again. However, I will try to be patient and wait for the final version of 3.0 to come out, before I make my decision. Thanks again!

    YouTube doesn't work on my 1st gen Touch either. Something in 3.0 broke it, although it doesn't crash. It just states it can't connect to YouTube.
