Has anyone found any of those other 100 new features Apple talked about?

This has the potential to be a very good thread, if ventrj is willing to continually update the OP with new features as we find them. It's like an easter egg hunt with 100 eggs hidden. Let me start with some less obvious ones:

-Option to have double clicking the home button go to the Spotlight Search
-Preview icon for last shot taken in Camera app
-Shake to shuffle in iPod
-Percentage battery remaining always in upper corner
-Scrolling of screenshots in App Store
-Call history for each contact
-Type of phone used under each call in Recents (i.e., mobile, home, work, etc.)
-Option to Share Contact in each contact listing

Yeah, I have a feeling a lot of these "features" will merely be changes. For example, the lower status bar in Safari is slightly transparent now.

I will update as i find things, also how do you get the battery % to show ?

I do not remember if 2.2.1 had this but you now have the option for caps lock. You have to turn it on it settings then to use it you hit the caps button twice.

I don't suppose you can create a group and then email to that group by just selecting the group name can you. Does that make sense?

Whoa guys, hold a link in Safari and you get the option to Open in New page! Now that is a GREAT new feature!

Also, ventrj if you don't start updating the OP with all our finds, I hope you don't take offense if I start a new thread dedicating to finding all the features. I think everyone would have a lot of fun with it :)

The "open in new page" option is really nice (thanks for the tip!), but it sounds as if the percentage indicator is a remnant of a prior jailbreak.

I think you are correct, which means it is a hidden option in the settings and iTunes backs it up and loads it into the next firmware. I actually wish I could turn it off :/

I think it is a new feature because every time I restored from having it on jailbreak, it would disappear once I restored. Now it still shows but it also has a % which it didn't have before

you can also type in landscape mode in the address book only if you were previously in landscape mode before. ex., i was adding a contact from the messages app in landscape mode and it took me to the "enter" page to enter the rest of the contact information in landscape mode.

Whoa that's pretty cool.

If anyone wants to help us count 100 new features, we're doing it here.
