Obscure features of iOS4 on the iPhone

Here are some features in the new OS upgrade that weren’t immediately clear to me what they were doing

  • In the AppStore, some of the purchases have a plus sign next to them. This indicates that the app has an iPad version too.


  • Apart from the built-in spell-checker which underlines incorrect words with red squiggly lines, you can also select a word manually and in the pop-up that appears there will be an extra option called ‘Replace…’. Tapping ‘Replace…’ brings up suggestions for other words that you might have intended to type instead of the original.


I’ll add more if I find something else interesting.
