    Awesome new app switching animation when using the switcher. At least twice as quick as zoom out-zoom in.

    I need a phone that works so I put it on my 2nd gen iPod and I can report that it connected to my exchange 2003 server without a problem. Slingplayer works, albiet with purple bars on either side of the video, MLB At Bat works including live streaming game video, Pocket Tunes works and Missle Command works. Bluetooth audio works although the volume can be controlled from the headset OR the iPod....it was only via headset before. No problems with wifi that I've noticed. It doesn't seem to hit the battery harder than with 3.1.3, also. From what I read that fairly abysmal first beta, this one appears to be a magnitude better.

    One nasty bug....I was watching a baseball game and turned off the bluetooth headset and the thing froze in it's tracks. Oops!

    you need to install the new sdk and restore to the firmware; upgrading doesn't work.

    nope there was a bug in beta 1 which only showed albums, events and faces, I once had places showing but the photo app crashed when I clicked on it and I never seen it again but in beta 2 it's visible properly.

    on my 3G I am still having issues accessing places.

    BUG: not all images show on my lockscreen as wallpaper that would show on 3.1.3 and below and I have no homescreen wallpaper on 3G

    I can start and stop play with my headset (Sony BT101) but the skip/repeat does nothing at all.

    It also gives me the message "iTunes could not back up the iPod 'Lord & Masters iPod' because the iPod refused the request". Which is cool...I won't have to wait 20 minutes while it backs up stuff I could reinstall from scratch in less time. ;-)

    Oh...and you do NOT need the beta SDK to install it. You just need to do a Restore, not an Update.

    this means your either a windows user or running OSX without the SDK installed :).... for windows there is a supposed fix for backups in the release notes, I use snow leopard with sdk so I don't need to worry on my windows pc

    Heh...well, I'm not installing an SDK that you can't use to submit apps.

    I should probably be more of a Windows user than I am. The Windows SDK's....full Windows or WinMo, release or beta SDK....is a whole lot easier to deal with than the spit-n-rolling-papers stuff Apple's been putting out the past few years. :p

    this is my first dealings with apple's beta via a dev account and i agree the way they do this is stupid, I mean they don't issue an incremental update for the sdk they re-release the entire thing :rolleyes: 3gig download every two weeks (or you don't get to backup then restore from that backup) it would seem going by beta 1 and beta 2 and i just feel dumb founded (if thats the right spelling) at how apple managed to make the second beta more unstable than the first one lol I mean come on the first one had some proper issues going on but beta 2 takes the biscuit

    Very true. I'd expect bugs in the new features of any beta release, but the new features seem to be working pretty well. I don't understand why old applications like the camera (and the clock alarms, for me) are having problems.

    Maybe because the software everybody is testing is coded for newer versions of the native applications that have yet to be announced? Just a thought.

    I realize this would sort of defeat the purpose of beta testing but perhaps Apple is already aware of the compatibility issues and is doing in-house debugging for the new set.

    Wishful thinking, I suppose.
