Posts Tagged ‘2.0.2’

After spending a day with 2.0.2, it doesn’t appear that too many of the bug fixes were directed at the first generation iPhone. Here’s my experience after a day of using the new update.

The Good

All of my apps worked after installing the update. 2.0.1 required that I uninstall and then download all of my apps again to get them to work. This appears to be a 2.x bug and Apple is working on a fix for September so your experiences may vary.

The contact application is usable for the first time for me. Before, I experienced long load times and plenty of scrolling lag.

The Bad

Safari: Still one of the worst applications on the iPhone. So far, I haven’t experienced any crashes yet with 2.0.2 but stability has been a huge issue in the past for me since the 2.x update. None of the other problems I was having seem to have been resolved. Safari still doesn’t remember which page you left off on and changing pages means that a reload is necessary. Page load times seem to be higher and keyboard and scrolling lag is still an issue especially when the site is loading.

The Ugly

My iPhone has completely frozen when reading email and using Safari. This has never happened since I bought the phone back in October. The touch screen doesn’t respond and the home button doesn’t work. I have to reboot the phone to get it to work again. Not good.

Apple, I really hope 2.1 is what 2.0 should have been. If it isn’t, please hold off until it’s ready. Perhaps it’s time to do a Snow Leopard type update on the iPhone and only concentrate on bug fixes and speed improvements for the next 6 months.
