I’m now the proud owner of an iPhone 4. I knew going in that they were dealing with that whole signal-killing-death-grip-thing but I also heard that updating my iPhone 3G to ios4 could kill it, and that reception in my place was so awful I was willing to chance it if there was a hope of fewer dropped calls.
A few days in and there are definitely less dropped calls! And I can’t even figure out how to execute the death grip that kills reception. I’ve been trying. Also — anyone up for some FaceTime fun? Anyone? Bueller?
I can change the background behind my apps too, which is neat. It’s currently this:
I’ve only gotten 2 new apps with the new phone — the iBooks iPhone app so I can sync my iBooks from my iPad, and iMovie.
I’m still figuring out how it works, but it’s a pretty simple process from what I can tell. I wish there was more freedom in where you could put text boxes (over an entire clip is kind of annoying) and but other than that it’s a really fun way to make quick videos from your phone look a little snazzier. Uploading them straight from your iPhone to youtube doesn’t keep them in HD quality (I believe the file is too big?) but quality is still good. I might try syncing to my computer later just to see the difference.
Here are two examples I made with clips of shows I saw with Ryan, Alex and Beth at Disneyland this weekend:
