iPhone OS 3.0 first impressions, screenshots, and video posted online (with video)

Apple’s new iPhone 3.0 software developer beta “is available in a variety of distributions for the various multi-touch products Apple has released over the past two years, each of which weighs in around 250MB. The updated version of the iPhone SDK is much heftier, at around 2.5GB,” Kasper Jade reports for AppleInsider.

“Copy and paste works across all applications. We’ve detailed the process for text, web content, and photos in a series of annotated screenshots here. Below are some additional examples, including copy and paste of MMS messages. There’s also an interface in Safari for copying URLs,” Jade reports.

“One cool feature of Apple’s new MMS ‘Messages’ app is the ability to send messages in the background, which lets you type out your second message while you’re waiting for the first to send. It’s quite helpful when sending very large media messages,” Jade reports.

“Apple’s new Voice Memo application lets you record voice memos for yourself, which can then be trimmed and sent to friends, family, or coworkers via email [or] MMS,” Jade reports. “Spotlight search is accessible by flicking the iPhone’s home screen to the right (as if there was a home screen to the left). In addition to serving as a global search app, it can also act as a quick application launcher.”
