Upgrade iPhone 3G to iOS4: It Runs Faster

Thursday, July 8th, 2010

The other day, I upgraded my iPhone 3G to iOS4, the latest software for the iPhone.  The bottom line: my iPhone 3G runs faster!

I had a lot of trepidation since the overwhelming number of reports I read said that the 3G ran significantly slower with iOS4.   New features are great, if my iPhone 3G is slow, I don’t want it.

Well, I’m happy to report that it is running faster for me.  While I haven’t done a side-by-side test, I have noticed that email, safari and the iPod all run faster on my iPhone 3G.  Even my favorite application, RunKeeper loads faster.

Best of all, the new features I’ve played around with are just awesome.  This includes the following:

  • Threaded Email – This is the grouping of emails by conversation (read: subject line)
  • Single Inbox for all my accounts
  • 5x Digital zoom for the camera
  • Updated Spell check

I’ve only had it installed for a few days.   I’ll report back in a week to see if anything has changed.

But so far, so good.

SwitchEasy Cases: A Positive Review

Tuesday, May 18th, 2010

I recently had a problem with my SwtichEasy Colors iPhone case.  It ripped:
Josh Zapin's SwitchEasy Colors  case Ripped

I was bummed especially since I really like the product:

  • It’s very slim
  • Protects well (especially with the jelly button)
  • Has lots of extras like covers for all the holes and screen protectors

I emailed the company, and through a relatively straightforward process, they sent me a new SwitchEasy Colors case completely free of charge!

You hear about such terrible customer service these days, that it’s nice to hear about good ones.

I will definitely buy other SwitchEasy products in the future.
