    This just popped into my head.... I thought it would be neat to find out what 3.0-only features the rest of the iPhone community is actually using. I use copy/paste a lot and the ability to log in to youtube and view subscriptions. What do you use the most?

    I use copy and paste a lot more than I thought I would. And I'm really enjoying the landscape version of Mail, it makes viewing emails so much easier.

    the feature i use the most is push notifications, and i don't get them that often. i use search every now and then just to find a song and i also select text to empty text fields that have text in them that i want to change so now i don't have to hold down backspace for ten minutes just to delete a paragraph. that's about the only 3.0 features i use. although i'm on a 1G iPod touch so there isn't much more anyways.

    Voice Memos. I'm such a loser. Forget things so often.

    I use voice command a lot in the car
    Nike + is fantastic, and I use it alot too
    And I use the video also-- but I can't wait for the MMS so I can send them.

    Too bad that the compass is basically rendered useless in a car.... what exactly was apple thinking? Did the engineers need a compass so the map would be oriented correctly while they're finding the way to the room full of tablet prototypes. lol

    Video recorder (3GS) if that counts.

    Followed by copy & paste and multiple images in emails.

    When I used to have 3.0, I used the ability to select the most. I didn't necessarily use the copy and paste a lot, but I liked being able to double tap a word and re-type it. Selecting text is much more convenient than holding down the delete button or using the magnifying glass.

    Viewing email in landscape is awesome. I very rarely use cut, copy and paste. The least I use is Voice Memo's and Spotlight.

    I've used voice recorder on the odd occasion.

    C&P on the odd occasion.

    I don't use landscape or spotlight. And I mean ever.

    I've MMS'd and tethered a couple times.

    I dunno ... for me, 3.0 didn't really blow my mind. But I like it just the same.

    the speed.



    oh wait ............ that's a 3GS/hardware feature.




    I admit there really isn't much other than the search feature (WHICH WON'T SEARCH THE NOTE IN A CONTACT!) that I use ..... maybe some CCP.

    Nothing else comes to mind that's been world changing.

    Today I realized that I pretty much only use Copy and Paste in OS 3... and that's only every once in a while. Why do I even have OS 3 on my iPhone?

    What do you mean?

    On my phone I just looked at a sample e-mail and this is what I got:

    E-mails visible in the in-box:
    VERTICAL - 5
    LANDSCAPE - 3

    Words visible in a single e-mail
    VERTICAL - 70
    LANDSCAPE - 17

    By my count, vertical mode lets me see a TON more than landscape mode. What is it that you enjoy about that? I mean, 17 vs. 70 isn't even close.

    I'm with you but others are likely more comfortable with the larger type.
