    Or, apps that are better now with iPhone 4?


    It might sound trifling, but Facebook and Twitter look a **** of a lot better. First time I popped open FB on the ip4 I thought I'd gotten a new set of contact lenses.

    I'm looking for honest appraisals of apps designed for ip4. The reviews out on the 'tubes are mixed.

    Pandora and Last.fm are much better thanks to multi-tasking. I never really used them prior to the iOS4 update. Every single game on my iPhone now loads pretty much instantly, which is fantastic. Besides that, everything is pretty much the same, just faster.

    I'm actually kind of disappointed that more apps haven't updated with higher res images, or at the very least, icons.

    Incredibooth by a mile. I've got some excellent photos of my two year old, she loves playing with it. Shame the resolution isn't high enough to print.
