    There might be threads similar to this, if so apologize for starting this one. I was curious as to what feature new or old, iphone users use the most. I am relatively new to the smartphones, though especially new to iphone (had a blackberry for awhile) hoping maybe this thread will allow me and others to fully utilize the features and get the most out of your iphone.

    also, maybe you could provide info as to why you find yourself using the feature the most, though thats up to you. lets also exclude siri/iMessage, think those features are widely used for obvious reasons.

    Notes - so I remember funny/important stuff that happens when I'm drunk.

    Twitter integration: Something I thought I would never use, but actually use quite often.

    Among the new features, dictation wins hands-down.

    I have been using reminders a lot...I love that I can set reminders and if I out in an address, it will remind me when I am near the destination(ie. pick up prescription) , read it later and twitter integration are great too.

    Just tried out the reminders app.

    Can anyone confirm that while setting location based reminders the gps function is active the entire time?

    I assume this KILLS the battery.

    Anyone?

    the timer, through SIRI usually,
    and Airplay Mirroring (RealRacing2 on an Apple TV, not just mirroring but split screen = awesome)

    Same here. Love it. So glad this finally got implemented.

    Using Siri quite a lot for simple stuff. Not been able to get dictation to work for me yet though. Seems to misunderstand a lot.

    I don't really "use" the feature as it's just something that comes with iOS5, but I love the notification system. I can't imagine my phone without it now.
